Killer Instinct ends Season 2 with an Aria this Friday

Iron Galaxy is ready to call Season Two of Killer Instinct a wrap by unveiling the game's latest trailer, debuting the final character, the malevolent AI known as Aria.


It's been a productive second season for Killer Instinct, thanks to new overlords Iron Galaxy. Today was something of a bittersweet day for fans, as the studio released the trailer for Season Two's final character. It's an artificial intelligence come to life and there are no strings on her. It's Aria, who will also act as the Season Two story mode's final boss.

Aria can use various drones, each extensions of her own body, to perform extended combos. Armed with shotgun knees, sound wave cannons, and grenades, Aria's trailer sees her taking the fight to many of the Killer Instinct fighters and coming out on top. In fact, she actually knocks Glacius through the Ultratech window, in what appears to be a Stage Ultra.

Aria will take Killer Instinct out with a huge bang, as she debuts for Ultra Edition owners on May 29. Combo Breaker Edition owners will get her on June 4. For more, check out the trailer below.

For those looking for more gameplay content, we've also included the 30 minutes of gameplay footage from this past weekend's Combo Breaker event in Chicago. Here, Iron Galaxy's Adam Heart and Isaac Torres offer a complete look at the character and her skills. Enjoy!
