The lights are on
Perhaps Microsoft is planning on doing something with Killer Instinct after all. While there's no real details to work with here, Microsoft confirmed it renewed the trademark for the classic fighting game from Rare.
"Our legal eagles have authorized us to say: 'We have either renewed or refiled a trademark application in various jurisdictions,'" Microsoft said on PlayXBLA.
This move likely means Killer Instinct is arriving on Xbox Live Arcade in the near future instead of Rare developing a completely new game. We'll have to wait and see.
Either would be good but id love a new killer instinct game.
A new Killer Instinct would be cool.
either way that will be amazing! super excited
This game needs a serious come back. This game was just as important as Mortal Kombat was when it came out. I remember having to wait in line at an arcade just to play this beast of a game. They should definitely develop a follow up!
Would be smart to release the originals on XBLA to see if they sell, although I hope as part of a Summer of Arcade.
Funny. I was just talking about this yesterday wondering why this fighter hasn't been remade yet.
It's most likely a re-release. Knowing Microsoft they would have Rare develop Killer Instinct Kinect.
