Killer Instinct: Season 2 — Maya Trailer Revealed and Next Character TeasedMeet Killer Instinct Season 2’s Maya and Her Deadly Daggers.
At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Killer Instinct fans will go hands-on for the first time with Season 2’s Maya, the bad-ass monster hunter wielding the ancient daggers “Temperance” and “Vengeance.” Maya is the second character to be revealed for Season 2, along with TJ Combo from the original Killer Instinct who was confirmed at E3 this past June. You can check out Maya in action and also a tease of the next character in the video above.
The game officially launches on Oct. 15, but Microsoft Studios and Iron Galaxy are giving fans a special way to get in on the action early.
On September 23, the same day that Killer Instinct: Season 1 arrives on retail disc ($19.99/£16.99/€19.99), Killer Instinct: Season 2 Ultra Edition will open up for pre-purchase. Pre-purchasing the Season 2 Ultra Edition gets you instant access to TJ Combo, plus the full version of Killer Instinct 2 Classic, three weeks before the official launch of Season 2.
Once October 15 arrives, Season 2 will officially launch with a completely revamped interface and eight new fighters, starting with TJ Combo and Maya at launch and a character per month after that. As always, the base game is a free download via Xbox Live. Additional Season 2 fighters will roll out on a monthly basis and can be purchased individually for $4.99/£3.99/€4.99.
