Microsoft Renews Killer Instinct Trademark

Post Thumb:


Microsoft recently revealed that they are renewing the Killer Instinct trademark. Could this mean a return of the fighting series? Will we see the return of the most insane combos in a fighting game ever? Read on to learn more.

Fans can rejoice that the Killer Instinct trademark has been renewed! Microsoft revealed this new information on PlayXBLA, “We have either renewed or refiled a trademark application in various jurisdictions.” Rare previously held the trademark, but was taken over by Microsoft in 2002 along with the trademark.

Killer Instinct is a 2D Fighting game, developed by Rare Ltd. and published by Nintendo, which was released in 1995. Killer Instinct plays like many other fighting games, in which the player controls a character in order to beat an opponent in a one-on-one encounter.

You can visit the official PlayXBLA website to read the full release.

    For real?? Fuck yeah, I miss playing that game and Killer Instinct Gold. I was good with Fulgore and Cinder. I hope this isnt a rumor. I thought the franchise was dead and gone.
