It'll be interesting to see how the appeal turns out.

It doesn't make much sense because KI was released in 95 in arcades and rare was bought by Microsoft way before that show was made. I am glad though since Microsoft and Rare cant screw up the series like they did with Banjo Kazooie.

This is quite strange, since they had no problem letting Sega use the Nightshade trademark last decade. Despite Beam Software's own equally forgotten game.

Never heard of this cartoon show.

They should make a fighting game set in the Star Trek universe and call it Klingon Impact.

Actually ,just make a whole series of fighting games with "KI" as the title:

Killer Impulse - Generic, they should use this
Karate Intense - Throwback to 80s/90s bull**** game titles
Kangaroo Intoxicated - Drunken Kangaroo boxing, NEVER BEEN DONE!
Kombat Imitator - MK rip off
Kinect Interlude - Cuz you'll only play it between games that are good
Knock-out Island - TJ Combo version of DOAXBV
Krunk Insanity - Killer Instinct via Def Jam
Kremlin Invasion - KI vs Russia (In Soviet Russia, the combo breaks you, kinda like how fighting games should be)
Kellogs Inversion - The last boss is a cereal monster that eats humans.

Murderer's madness
Slaughterer's spree
Reaper's revenge
Executioner's erection
Destroyers deed

Who needs"Killer Instinct"?
