The next fighter confirmed for Killer Instinct‘s second season is the Amazonian princess Maya, Microsoft and Iron Galaxy Studios announced during EVO 2014.
Maya last appeared in 1996’s Killer Instinct 2, and in Killer Instinct Season 2 on Xbox One she will use her two ancient daggers “Temperance and Vengeance” in a high risk, high-reward fighting style. Developer Iron Galaxy explained (via GameSpot) that Maya’s daggers will level up as she lands consecutive hits, and once they reach max level they will become an unblockable bounding projectile. However, if Maya misses an attack the levels of her daggers will be reset.
She is the second confirmed character for Season 2. Back in June, it was announced that TJ Combo would be joining the roster.
Iron Galaxy Studios took over development of Killer Instinct for its second season after original developer Double Helix Games was purchased by Amazon.
