By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Edit: It has come to my attention that the achievements are now live for the Windows 8 game that was released earlier this week. The details for this title are now below.

Original Story:

After the sole Xbox LIVE Arcade release on Wednesday, yesterday brought news of another game that would be released today. This is currently the last version of the title to be planned. Also, this week's Xbox One retail release finally made it to retailers in all countries. Despite being released in North America on Tuesday, we left the details of the game's digital release until now. As a final note, Killer Instinct players should be able to purchase the "Spinal" character DLC for the game. As the DLC is not listed on Xbox.com, we're unable to provide links and regional pricing and we suggest that you head here for further details.
