I thought I would round up the info on this game in one thread since its kind of spread out over a few threads. So we can just share whatever new info comes out in this thread.
So how about a little rundown on the details around this game:
Sadira (brand new character)
Two additional characters will be added soon after launch, but those have not been announced. Also, these two additional fighters will be bundled with the complete story mode. The 8 total characters are considered season 1. Next year, a second season of 8 more characters will be released and then that can go into a third season the following year.
So then the pricing:
$20 gets you the entire game which includes the Season 1 roster
$40 gets you the whole game, plus extras such as:
---Killer Instinct 1 & 2 skins/costumes for all characters
---Additional costumes and other character alterations
---A complete port of Killer Instinct 1
If you would prefer to buy a single character or two, you also have the option of adding characters to the free demo, which already includes Jago. Each character will cost $5.
The latest news was the confirmation of Orchid for the first season roster (At the end of the Sadira combo trailer):
I've been following the developer videos and they are definitely working hard to get each character working as well as possible, not to mention working with the fighting game community for testing. Its shaping up to be a great release, hopefully it does well so we see continued support.
