For those wondering when the second season of Killer Instinct content will drop on Xbox One, wonder no more. In their Gamescom press release, Microsoft has revealed that Iron Galaxy Studios’ work will be available on October 15.

Season two of Killer Instinct will come with eight fighters, starting with TJ Combo and Maya, as well as a revamped interface for the game. Additional fighters will be added each month after that.

Those interested in getting all the characters can choose between two packages. First off, the Ultra Edition, which will set players back $39.99, is planned to come with the eight fighters as well as select costumes and accessories for these fighters and a copy of Killer Instinct 2 Classic. Additionally, those who purchase this version between September 23 and October 14 will be able to get TJ Combo early. Meanwhile, the Combo Breaker Pack will cost $19.99  and come with the eight new fighters only.

For those who aren’t willing to purchase the whole package, each individual fighter will be available for $4.99 each upon their subsequent releases.

When not writing for Shoryuken's front page, D3v spends part of his time running tournaments in the Philippines, including the country's biggest fighting game event, Manila Cup.

    So season one is 40 on disc? And season 2 is 40 ask on disc? Cooll

    I’m hoping there’ll be a physical media option for both of these soundtracks. I’m an old fart who greatly prefers physical media to digital, has been collecting fighting game soundtrack CDs for donkey’s ages, and would like to see these 2 on m’shelf alongside the original Killer Cuts CD.

    My only issue with this? Only two characters at launch. It’s going to feel like I spent $40 for two characters and ki2. For a while, tough to swallow…

    yeah not sure I can bring myself to pay for the ultra edition this time until all the characters are available – may well pick up the combo breaker pack and then upgrade it later for the costume unlocks

  • yovideogames

  • chrobaciky

  • Stoogie

    I want KI2 arcade, but if the classic costumes will be as awful as in season 1…. ugh.
