Announced at the Xbox Gamescom briefing, Killer instinct will be getting another season, starting March 2016.

Just a couple of months ago, Season 2 came to an end, bringing a handful of old and new fighters; more stages and themes; and features including a revamped story-mode and ‘shadows’, and it goes without saying that Iron Galaxy have done an amazing job with the franchise.

I’m proud to announce that Killer Instinct Season 3 is coming March 2016 to Xbox One AND Windows 10!

If you own KI today, you’ll own it on Windows. And all your content, progress, achievements and friends come with you.

We are supporting cross platform play; and on Windows ALL of your controllers and fight sticks will work.

I am also excited to announce that Killer Instinct will feature guest characters, and that KI and Rare Replay players can get a sneak peek of Rash from Battletoads – coming TODAY!

Season 3 kicks it off with guest character Rash from Battletoads, but will most likely include the remaining KI cast Kim Wu and Tusk – we could also see Eyedol or Gargos being added as well. There could also be another guest character besides Rash, we’ll just have to wait and see!

As a special thank you to KI fans, Iron Galaxy is giving players early access to Rash – right now! Letting players test out his signature moves from Battletoads, like the big foot and speeder bike – ahead of Season 3’s release.

He will be available to those who have purchased anything within Killer Instinct (bundles, characters accessories, gold) or if you have played Battletoads through Rare Replay. You can read more about the early access to Rash, and his moveset over at Ultra-Combo.
