NEW, NEW, NEW: The new game will add new content just days after release

"Those seasons are going to have new cosmetics as you would expect, but also new content, and new maps, and new ball types and new playlists. Team KO plays very different from Diamond Dash which is very different from Ball up Brawl so there will be a lot of new ways to play," said Harrison.

So far, we know that the new content released for Season 1 will include a new map, new Ball-up Brawl playlist, Season Contracts, weekly Crew Contracts, and League Play will begin with the launch of Season 1.
