Killer Instinct coming to XBLA? Microsoft renews trademark
Microsoft has renewed the trademark for Killer Instinct, the fighting game originally released on Super Nintendo in 1995. It was then followed by a Game Boy installment and Killer Instinct Gold on NIntendo 64.
Microsoft announced today, "We have either renewed or refiled a trademark application in various jurisdictions.”
Details about the acquisition are vague beyond that. This could mean anything from an HD remake to a new sequel, but given that the announcement was made on PlayXBLA, I'd bet some sort of release for Xbox LIVE Arcade. What are you hoping for?
