Speaking to Eurogamer, Microsoft’s Ken “GoldenEye‘s Klobb is Named After Me” Lobb revealed that eight additional characters will be released for the game in 2014 as part of “Season Two.” Both sets of characters will be able to battle it out together in Killer Instinct and Lobb hinted that a complete collection of Season Two characters would also be priced at $19.99.
