Kan-Ra joins the Killer Instinct: Season 2 cast starting Monday
Microsoft Studios and the development team at Iron Galaxy are excited to share a new trailer showing off the distinct playstyle and moves of the Babylonian Sorcerer, Kan-Ra, who will be joining Killer Instinct: Season 2’s roster of characters starting on Monday!
