2XKO Updates In 2024

2XKO is a 2v2 tag-based fighting game with team-based gameplay that's quite different compared to other fighting games of a similar subgenre. One unique appeal of 2XKO is in its two-player communication and teamwork, which has fans excited to see how dynamic the esports scene will be. 2XKO can also be played solo as a traditional fighting game, or in any combination of solos and pairs.
