Spinal slated for Killer Instinct release in January of next year, Fulgore will follow in March - TE2 fightstick shipments may be delayed

During yesterday's Killer Instinct stream, the Microsoft Studios team dropped a bit more information on the release window of the 7th and 8th season 1 characters. Previously, we knew that the two post launch fighters would become available some time next year.

This time around, the MS Studios team got a little more specific on when we can expect to play as Spinal and Fulgore. The pirate-themed skeleton is planned to hit Xbox One consoles in January of next year, and the Ultratech cyborg will follow in March.

Additionally, we have gotten reports that some who pre-ordered their Mad Catz Killer Instinct Tournament Edition 2 fightstick, may not be receiving on the launch day of the console. One of our readers told us that they received an email from Amazon, stating that the stick would be released on December 14th, as opposed to November 22nd, the launch day of the console.

Hit the jump to read on.

Both Amazon and GameStop now have the release date for the Killer Instinct TE2 listed as December 13th of this year, so it seems those who pre-ordered from these sites could potentially see delays.

There are currently no specifics on if players will actually be receiving their fightsticks in December, however, Mad Catz representative Mark "MarkMan" Julio mentioned on Twitter that we can possibly expect an update on TE2 pre-orders / shipping, next week. We will post a follow up here on EventHubs when more information becomes available.
