Xbox Store Today: Killer Instinct Season 3, RBI Baseball 16, Resident Evil 6, more

Ready? Fight!

Microsoft has launched the first batch of Killer Instinct Season 3 content on the Xbox One and PC today. That includes four new characters (Rash, Arbiter, Kim Wu, and Tusk) and an updated visual look. Four more characters are in the works (the vampiric Mira in April, Gargos in May, and a pair of brand new characters in June and July), as well as the mysterious “Shadow Lords” Story Mode.

Also available to download this week for the Xbox One is RBI Baseball 16, MLB Advanced Media’s latest retro-styled baseball sim. This year’s edition includes a number of new animations, along with a “revamped defensive AI” and an “improved batting system.” There’s no peanuts or Crackerjack, but Xbox One owners will also get the chance to try out Resident Evil 6, which was re-released in a remastered edition this week by Capcom.

Finally this week, Telltale Games will bring Minecraft: Story Mode to a temporary end with the game’s fifth episode, while The Walking Dead: Michonne reaches its midpoint with Episode 2. Both games are available to download through the Xbox Games Store for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
