We love a surprise and the announcement that Killer Instinct will return for the Xbox One's launch sure ticked that box when Microsoft dropped the bombshell at its E3 conference in Los Angeles.

The fighting game, last seen on Nintendo's SNES in the 90s, was a cult classic one-on-one fighter and it's been dragged kicking and screaming into next-generation glory.

The title was shown off in its one-on-one multiplayer, with Jago and Sabrewolf punching seven bells out of one another. Graphically we're not sure that this next-gen title is showing off as much as it could - but it's got to be all about that classic gameplay.

Ready... Fight!
