Killer Instinct Classic on Xbox One is a great way to relive my favorite arcade game at home.  Saying "Xbox, Play Killer Instinct Classic!" and getting a nearly arcade-perfect translation on my TV is something I never thought would happen.

It's obvious Nintendo is no longer associated with Killer Instinct since Microsoft bought the right to Killer Instinct.  This appears to have changed the Classic KI port.  It doesnt affect gameplay but it does take away from the authentic look.  After beating Eyedol, watching T.J. Combo's ending, I watched the credits.  At the end you can see Nintendo's credit has been removed.  Furthermore, the attract mode plays after that.  The graphically impressive (at the time) Nintendo logo that zooms forward taking us through the "e" to reveal another awesome tease "Available for your home in 1995 only on Nintendo Ultra 64!" are both removed.  I knew it was unlikely to include Nintendo's logos and I honestly didnt notice right away but it is a little sad once you realize it's gone!  Watch the videos below and share your comments on this.
