The gameplay itself is actually quite amusing. You may have thought that a Vice President of Microsoft Studios would have had the opportunity for an early preview of Killer Instinct before anyone else, or at the very least – know some basic combos. Instead, what you’ll see is Jimmy Fallon deploying some classic button mashing techniques with Saberwulf, actually performing some juicy looking combos to the amused audience.

Spencer admits during play that he ‘got schooled’, while Fallon’s concentration face whilst playing is priceless. It isn’t exactly the advertisement that Jago would have wanted, but nevertheless good fun and a fresh look at the game. Don’t forget that Killer Instinct is going free to play, and will also be supported by a Season Pass.

Jago will be offered free of charge, but all other characters will be locked away for a fee, unless you picked up the Season Pass which has yet to be priced. Check out the video above and let us know your thoughts on another victory for the classic button masher. The same clip also features some lovely gameplay from Forza 5 on the streets of Prague.
