During its pre-E3 press conference, Microsoft announced that Killer Instinct: Season 2 would hit the Xbox One this fall. Iron Galaxy Games, which introduced the two-button fighting game Dive Kick last year, is developing the new season of downloadable content. Iron Galaxy is taking over from Double Helix, which has been acquired by Amazon.
Dave Lang, CEO of Iron Galaxyy, told Polygon that Killer Instinct: Season 2 is “probably the biggest thing we’ve ever done. This is an amazing opportunity to work on a game and a genre we are super passionate about.”
A fighting game series created by Rare, Killer Instinct originally hit arcades back in 1994. The game spawned a sequel in 1996, but generated no other titles until last year’s Xbox One reboot. The new installment received mostly positive reviews, scoring a 73 out of 100 on the review-aggregate site Metacritic.
The teaser trailer for Killer Instinct: Season 2 introduces the next downloadable character: TJ Combo, a disgraced heavyweight champion and an original playable from the first two games. The teaser can be seen below, with Combo showing off strings of…well, combos.
