Upcoming Major KI Related Events

Killer Instinct is in a bit of downtime while we are waiting for Shadow Jago, Season3 and the PC port, but that doesn’t mean things still aren’t going on. Here is a list of some upcoming KI related events that might interest you.

KI 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY - November 22nd 2015

Some of you may have noticed a special achievement pop up for those who have played the game over the last couple of days. That is to commemorate the two years since the new KI released 2 years ago on November 22nd 2013. I am not sure if they have anything planned to celebrate but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough this coming Sunday.

KOMBO KLASH ONLINE - November 29th 2015

Evan aka 8-bit Zombie the wonderful man who brings us the free online beatdowns every week is throwing a special Kombo Klash event sponsored by the Killer Instinct community Fund and Ultra Arcade with a $3000 pot bonus paid out to top 8. The winner of the event also automatically qualifies for the World Cup.They are still taking sign ups and this looks to be one of the biggest and most stacked online tournaments KI has ever seen. Please be there to show support even if you don’t play in it.
