Killer Instinct - Season 2 gamers on the Xbox One can start downloading a new character, Kan-Ra, to play with starting today if they have purchased the $39.99 Ultra Edition of the fighting game. Folks who have elected to buy the $19.99 Combo Breaker edition can download Kan-Ra on Sunday, November 30 and he will be available as a stand alone purchase in November for $4.99.

Kan-Ra is a mummified Babylonian sorcerer who has managed to stay alive for over 2,000 years thanks to his arcane magic. His fighting abilities are as follows:

"Drawing combat powers from the dark sorceries he's mastered, Kan-Ra explodes into battle with a unique combination of ranged attacks, nasty ground and air-based traps, and incredible situational mobility. Players will be challenged to master his distinct playstyle and diverse arsenal to best effect against his opponents."

Kan-Ra is the third of eight new fighters that have been released for Killer Instinct - Season 2 so far (TJ Combo and Maya are the other two). The remaining five characters will be released on a monthly basis. In fact, a new trailer for Kan-Ra has a bit of spoiler for the next character that will be offered, which should make old school Killer Instinct fans very happy. What's your favorite fighter in the game so far?
