Twitch Rivals Brings Back KI
Twitch Rivals just recently went old school with a Killer Instinct tournament after finding success with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Twitch streamer Maximilian Dood who hosted the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 tournament returned to host the upcoming Killer Instinct tournament. Twitch Rivals’ BringBackKI broadcasted yesterday, February 1st, while Killer Instinct is available on Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Game Pass through Rare Replay.
Twitch Rivals hosted an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 to great success back in November, which apparently led to the upcoming Killer Instinct tournament. On November 23rd, Twitch Rivals joined popular fighting game content creator and Twitch streamer Maximilian Dood when they hosted UMvC3 Lives. This shined a spotlight on the niche fighting title, while the Killer Instinct tournament will shined a spotlight on another dated fighting game. While this may bring more eyeballs to the classic fighting game, it’ll be interesting if it boosts interest in another new installation in the series.
“It’s time to BringBackKI…again! Thanks to Twitch Rivals , we’ll be holding a 32 person tournament,” said Maximillian Dood. “Thanks to one of the greatest fighting games/communities, & hopefully we’ll get to show that to everyone… for those asking, yes, it’s Berserker Mike reprising his role as the announcer from KI 2013!” It’s currently unknown if Twitch Rivals hit UMvC3 Lives viewership numbers with BringBackKI, but the tournament still got plenty of eyeballs on the dated Killer Instinct franchise.
Twitch Rivals is primarily known for hosting Fortnite, Valorant, League of Legends, and FIFA tournaments, but they’re also shining a spotlight on older titles like Killer Instinct and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
