During day one of this weekend’s Evolution Fighting Championship 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Killer Instinct developers Iron Galaxy took a moment to detail some of the new features and tweaks coming to Season Two of the Xbox One-exclusive fighter.

New mechanics like Stage Ultras, Air Counter Breakers, will also be introduced, as well as new features, modes, and changes to previously existing characters.
