Eight new fighters including TJ Combo and Maya

Season 2 of Killer Instinct begins on October 15, 2014. Fans can expect new fighters, enhanced game modes, and a revamped interface.

The Ultra Edition will cost $39.99 and will include eight fighters starting with TJ Combo and Maya. New fighters will be added each month from there. This pack will also include costumes, accessories, a perfect port of Killer Instinct 2 Classic with full multiplayer support over Live, and general early access to special stuff.

Then there's the Combo Breaker pack for $19.99. This just includes the eight fighters. Otherwise you can purchase fighters individually as they're made available for $4.99 each. Oh, and you can start playing with TJ Combo early if you buy the Ultra Edition between September 23 - October 14. You'll also get Killer Instinct 2 Classic early.

Finally, the season one soundtrack AND the original Killer Cuts soundtrack will be available on September 23. Hell yeah!

From a cosmetic perspective, I'm digging this new round of Killer Instinct characters. While the trailer is focused on next week's Aganos, a golem who looks more like a boss than a combatant, there's also a tease at the end for a character everyone seems to be calling "Ghost Girl." I hope that name sticks. Videogames can and should be weird like that sometimes.
