No Kim Wu, don't care.
I can't think of a worse aging fighting game.
Shaq Fu is not that bad. I replayed it recently. It was kinda fun.
Timekillers is way worse.
Almost two decades waiting for a new one, only to get this horseshit.

KI has always been a shit fighting game
I always liked it as it fell somewhere between the button mashing of tekken and the actual skills needed to pull off a cool combo like in SF2. But yeah this was about as 90s as it got.
"Worst aging" as in a game that used to be the shit but has fallen the farthest once you take the goggles off.
Those other games are barely remembered, whereas SUPER ULTRA C-C-C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER is still embedded in video game pop culture.
As badly aging 90s as Mortal Kombat is, Killer Instinct has aged way worse.
I loved BloodStorm, the less successful follow-up to Time Killers, without a trace of irony. It was mostly the secret stuff; the game had lots of hidden characters and about a hundred PG-13 insults that would come up if you mashed buttons after you won.
And by the button "heating up" I mean if you just left your hand on the button for a few seconds you'd get burned. It was probably 140 F or so? Ah, the good old days.

When it comes to bad fighting games, the one and only correct answer is Ballz 3d.
And perhaps Shadow: War of Succession, but I never had a chance to play that.
I remember renting Ballz 3D and it was pretty shitty, but the graphics were pretty cool for the time, and it sort of felt like a Tekken for us poor kids who couldn't afford a Playstation. You wanna talk bad fighting games? Rise of the Robots.

i think i remember the robot
wasnt there a monkey that farted on people
I don't recall any farting monkeys. Just a skeleton pirate and a werewolf. And some sort of sentient fire blob and ice blob.
You know you're doing something wrong when your characters and their backstories are even more hackneyed then the fighting game competition's that you're out there to destroy.
You might be thinking of Ballz, which had a farting monkey.
The robot's name is Fulgore, the skeleton pirate is Spinal, the furry is Saberwolf. The two blobs are actually amorphous aliens, Cinder and Glacius. They were probably meant to serve as KI's version of Scorpion and Sub-Zero, but it never really worked out, because nobody gave two shits about Glacius or especially Cinder (who got written out of the series after the first game). Most of the fan attention focused on Orchid, Fulgore, and to a lesser degree Jago (the Lui Kang/ Ryu ninja dude), who were developed into the franchises' core heroes and villains.
Primal Rage had a monkey, two of them IIRC, but I don't think he farted. I think he peed on people instead.
Oh, nevermind. I looked it up; the Primal Rage monkey pees AND farts on you. The pee is a fatality, the fart is a regular move. He also barfs.
I, for one, find Killer Instinct canon quite progressive for allowing the original game's lone woman character to win the tournament and destroy the final boss.
Canonically, did she kill it by flashing her tits at it?
You shut up about Primal Rage, Caminante. That game relied on gross gimmicks, like eating tiny people, rather than staying classy, like KI with it's tastefully censored tit flashing. (I do not believe a canonical method was ever established for how Orchid dispatched Eyedol, but the tit flashing fatality seems likely, given that Eyedol is a magical monk demon and thus unlikely to be vulnerable to her frog transformation ninpo.)

I won 17 in a row on the first one in the arcade, I was the coolest kid for a very short time. KI has always been a guilty pleasure, but KI2 was just awful, this one looks no better and the F2P bullshit doesn't do a thing for me either.
At first I though, "Wait, isn't this a Rare property? Did they let it go?" Then I realized I'm not 16 any more and Rare hasn't been a player in games for ages.
Rare died over a decade ago. Most of their intellectual "property" got caught in a legal limbo between Microsoft and Nintendo, which was why you haven't seen any of their classic titles for awhile, and why this was (supposed to be) such a big deal.
Of course, Microsoft did everything in their power to make it as shitty and underwhelming as they could, probably because some executive saw what a muck-up Duke Nukem Forever turned out to be, and just assumed that was the sort of thing kids were into these days.
Microsoft bought Rare, and Killer Instinct, Banjo Kazooie, and Perfect Dark were never trademark purchased by Nintendo. Which is why the latter two have been raped into extinction by Microsoft and the former is well on it's way to the same fate.
Under Nintendo partnership, Rare made the Donkey Kong Country games, the original Perfect Dark, the original Banjo Kazooie, Diddy Kong Racing, Conker's Bad Fur Day...dare I say, they didn't make a single bad game.
Now Microsoft has reduced them to making shitty bullshit motion control "WiiSports" and "WiiFit" knockoff Kinect games where you flail your arms to win. It's saddening.
Question: should Rare even be considered Rare? If I understand correctly, Microsoft replaced the entire staff not long after buying them out; this would make them Rare in name only, and would account for why the imprint is putting out so much bullshit.

I wonder which characters that dinosaur-shaped silhouette and that lava man-shaped silhouette could signify
could they be the lava man
could they be the dino
life is full of possibilities

Don't patronize me, Nocturno. I know what caused 9/11.
