Microsoft still has no plans to release a disc-based version of their Xbox One launch title, Killer Instinct. But they’ve teamed up with Penny Arcade (specifically, artist Mike “Gabe” Krahulik) to produce a boxed version of the game known as the “Pin Ultimate Edition.”
Instead of a game disc, the box will contain a voucher for the “Ultra Edition” of the game, which includes all eight Season One characters and a downloadable version of the original Killer Instinct arcade game. Two “Pinny Arcade” pins designed by Krahulik, Jago and the Killer Instinct 3D Logo, will also be packaged with the Pin Ultimate Edition. Finally, the box will contain a display board for all 16 Killer Instinct pins. Additional pins will can be earned through in-game efforts, though some will be sold separately or available as part of future promotional activities.
The Killer Instinct: Pin Ultimate Edition has been priced at $59.99, a $20 premium over the digital-only Ultra Edition. It’ll also be released on November 29, a week after the launch of the Xbox One.
