Killer Instinct's third season launches March 29 on Xbox One and Windows 10, Microsoft announced today during its big spring showcase rollout of news.

The newest season of the fighting game delivers three stars from the roster of 1996's Killer Instinct 2 — Kim Wu, Tusk and Gargos — along with guest stars Rash from Battletoads and the Halo franchise's Arbiter. 343 Industries, which aided in production, explained why the latter character is an Arbiter, not The Arbiter, over the weekend. Four more characters will be revealed later.

The Windows PC and Xbox One editions have cross-play and cross-buy functionality, the announcement noted, including fight stick support. This will be the debut on Windows PC for the fighting game franchise, which rebooted on Xbox One in with that console's launch in 2013.
