With Killer Instinct‘s season 1 under wraps and and a new developer in Iron Galaxy Studios, what’s next for the Xbox One exclusive? Turns out a 2nd season has been confirmed during the latest PlayXBLA stream, and will feature 8 new fighters and the return of No Mercy finishing moves. When can I pre-order?
Although none of the new fighters have been confirmed, there just so happens to be exactly 8 classic fighters missing from the current roster — Cinder, Riptor, TJ Combo, Tusk, Kim Wu, Maya, Gargos and Eyedol.
The previous entry’s No Mercy finishers were absent from the 2013 release, but Iron Galaxy wants to bring them back in to the spotlight. It may take Microsoft, Double Helix and Iron Galaxy a year, but Killer Instinct is finally shaping up to be a complete fighter.
While season 1 offered a season pass that featured additional retro costumes and an exclusive port of the original Killer Instinct, there is no word yet on whether season 2 will offer something similar — a port of Killer Instinct 2, or Killer Instinct Gold perhaps?
Which missing characters would you like to see return? Are you more interested in returning classics, or would you rather see some new blood like Double Helix introduced with Sadira?
