The next season of Killer Instinct for Xbox One is coming Oct. 15, developer Iron Galaxy Studios announced today. Killer Instinct Season 2 includes eight fighters, starting with returning characters TJ Combo from the first Killer Instinct and Maya from Killer Instinct 2.
Killer Instinct Season 2 can be purchased in an Ultra Edition ($39.99/£34.99/€39.99) that includes eight fighters, "select" fighter costumes and accessory packs, a port of 1996 arcade game Killer Instinct 2 and early access to new characters and customization items.
