Killer Instinct Seasons 2 & 3
After Double Helix was acquired by Amazon in 2014, Microsoft decided to bring on a new partner to continue development on Killer Instinct for the Xbox One. With a reputation in the industry as one of the best fighting game shops in games, and our love for the iconic Killer Instinct property, we were thrilled to get to work on this title. After taking over from the talented developers over at Double Helix, Iron Galaxy quickly got to work rebooting this fantastic game for Seasons 2 & 3.
COME FOR THE REBOOT, STAY FOR THE C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKERSSSSS
Fighting game experts
We love fighting games at Iron Galaxy, and some of us even play them competitively. Working on Killer Instinct allowed us to flex our expert muscles a bit and make this fighting game as fun and authentic as we possibly could.
With Seasons 2 and 3, Microsoft continued driving the narrative and lore aspects of the game while we focused on designing fun and balanced characters complete with top-notch artwork. Our development team has a lot of experience playing fighting games on a high level, and that experience really helped us focus on what makes great fighting games feel balanced and fair.
Revamping, but staying true
We obviously spent a lot of time helping to continue Killer Instinct’s full reboot, but we did it in a way that we feel stays true to the heart of the original game. Everyone has their favorite character or costume from the old game, and we did our best to revamp Killer Instinct with the past at the front of our minds.
