"We have either renewed or refilled a trademark application."

Microsoft has renewed the trademark for Killer Instinct. And you’ll never guess who broke the news! (Or maybe you will, since it’s included in the title.)

PlayXBLA, an official Microsoft website focused on Xbox 360’s upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade games, made the renewal public.

“With all due respect to our friends in the media who like to frequent trademark sites, we thought we’d break this one ourselves,” wrote the site. “Our legal eagles have authorized us to say: ‘We have either renewed or refilled a trademark application in various jurisdictions.'”

Considering the site, could a re-release of the 1995 classic Killer Instinct be on the way for Xbox LIVE Arcade?
