As the Xbox One version of the arcade fighting classic Killer Instinct nears Season 2 of Competitive Play, Double Helix is hoping to add new features and characters to the game. Killer Instinct Central tweeted earlier today that Maya would be joining the Killer Instinct Xbox One crew.

If you’re familiar with the original Killer Instinct, you’ll likely remember Maya as one of the more underwhelming characters in the game. Double Helix is bringing her back with more power than ever before. According to the KI Central tweets, Maya’s daggers will be the central element to her power and will be the keys to using her effectively. The daggers can be thrown like a boomerang and can also be lost during the battles. Her stage, City of Dawn, will be set in South America.
Season 2 of Killer Instinct doesn’t have a definite release date yet, but any additional information on it will be posted as it becomes available.
