Microsoft pegs Killer Instinct for retail release

Killer Instinct was one of the stand-out gems of the Xbox One launch lineup, and the announcement of a second season made fighting fans very happy indeed. Now, there’s more big news from the franchise: You’ll be able to snag a boxed copy of the game before the end of the year.

Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack

Fresh from its appearance at EVO 2014 as one of the main events, Killer Instinct isn’t losing speed. Microsoft and the dev team at Iron Galaxy have put together a nifty “Combo Breaker Pack” that will hit store shelves in September.

(At least, it’ll hit North American stores on September 23. We haven’t yet heard when it’ll be escaping into other territories – or even if it’ll make it out.)

The pack contains all eight fighters from Season 1 – Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, Thunder, Sadira, Orchid, Spinal, and Fulgore – plus a code for TJ Combo, the first character revealed from Killer Instinct Season 2.

In Season 2, TJ Combo will be joined by Maya, but it doesn’t seem like she’ll make it onto the disk.

This is, of course, all part of the hype that’s leading up to the official release of Season 2 for Xbox One later this year… get your C-C-C-COMBO BREAKERS ready!
