Microsoft renews the trademark on Killer Instinct
Microsoft has renewed the trademark on Rare's long-dormant brawler series Killer Instinct.
Killer Instinct as become one of Rare's most sought-after IP's with fans from all across the gaming community clammering for them to finally make a sequel to the combo-laden fighting series.
The series debuted on the SNES in 1995 with the console port of the original Killer Instinct and sadly the last time it was seen was in 1996 when Rare released Killer Instinct Gold, a special version of Killer Instinct 2, on the N64.
Microsoft went so far as to announce the renewal of the Killer Instinct trademark formally saying, "With all due respect to our friends in the media who like to frequent trademark sites, we thought we'd break this one ourselves. Our legal eagles have authorized us to say: We have either renewed or refiled a trademark application in various jurisdictions."
This could mean any number of things ranging from and HD remake for XBLA to a full blown new sequel. Whatever it is we'll keep our eyes peeled and let you know as soon as we hear anything.
