Inspired by the Capcom Pro Tour, Ultra Arcade co-owner and Kombo Klash organizer Brandon Alexander has announced a Killer Instinct World Cup competitive circuit for 2016 — with a cool $10,000 prize pot for the grand finals.
To enter the Killer Instinct World Cup finals, however, players will have to first earn a qualifying spot. Winning at any of four Kombo Klash tournaments (which includes Kombo Klash Japan) or at EVO for Killer Instinct automatically qualifies a player into the KI World Cup. Outside of those five guaranteed spots, the remaining spots will be awarded to the top 11 players with the most number of ranking points throughout the circuit.
More details can be found here.
Here at Ultra Arcade, it’s no secret we’re big fans of Killer Instinct, and we are fully committed to supporting the game and expanding its scene. So if you haven’t already downloaded Killer Instinct to your Xbox One (and why not? It’s the best new fighting game of 2013), you’re in luck. For the first time ever, Killer Instinct is coming in disc form September 23rd, 2014, just in time for Season 2.
Every copy of the KI: Combo Breaker Pack gives early access to TJ Combo, the first new fighter in Season 2. Season 2’s official start date is October 15th. That’s right: You can get over 3 weeks of a head start on Season 2! If you’ve already got Killer Instinct though, don’t stress, there’s still an option for you. Players who pick up the Ultra Edition between Sept. 23 and Oct. 14 get immediate access to TJ Combo and Killer Instinct 2 Classic, a port of the sequel to the original arcade game.
