Online gaming publication Siliconera has spotted that development studio Level 5 has registered a trio of trademarks recently. The trademarks that were registered are Wonderflick, Rare Drop Adventurer Note, and Earth Devastating B-rank Girlfriend. Siliconera firmly believes that these are games that will be included in the inevitable Guild 03. So far, none of these games have been announced. Hopefully all will be revealed soon.
Level 5, the publisher behind Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven, has filed a trademark for the immensely popular Fantasy Life in Europe. The game has been developed by Mother 3 developer, Brownie Brown, and has flown off store shelves in Japan. The Official Nintendo Magazine for Australia and New Zealand said in a previous edition that the Nintendo 3DS game is coming late 2013.
Eternal Darkness, the survival horror video game released for the Nintendo GameCube, has had its fifth extension trademark granted. The applicant owner is Nintendo of America. The sequel to the Gamecube game was originally thought to be canceled as the original developer, Silicon Knights, were faced with a number of layoffs. Judging from the trademark extension the project could well be back on track. Who would you like to see develop the sequel to Eternal Darkness?
Square Enix has filed for a new trademark called Circle of Mana. So far, there’s nothing known about this project, but let’s hope it’ll be like the fantastic Secret of Mana for SNES, which can be downloaded for 800 Wii Points via Wii’s Virtual Console. Because the last title in the series, Heroes of Mana, is for Nintendo DS, perhaps Circle of Mana will be for Nintendo 3DS.
We heard a few months ago that Nintendo filed a trademark for a mysterious game titled The Last Ranger in Japan, now it appears they have filed the same trademark for the West. There’s a few rumours floating around the internet which suggest that the game might be a new addition to the Pokemon Ranger franchise, but for now it’s all guess-work.
Namco Bandai has filed two trademarks, one titled All Star Battle, and another titled Project X Zone (Project Cross Zone). It sounds quite possible that either of these aforementioned trademarks could be related to the mystery game that Sega, Namco and Capcom are working on together. The full reveal for the mystery crossover game is expected sometime next week.
Nintendo and GameFreak have issued a trademark for a new Pokemon game titled ”Pokemon Tretta”. Not only has Nintendo registered the name, but they’ve also created a logo for the title as well. In Japan, the word “Tretta” is a popular product name which translates to either bookshelf or bicycle. Nintendo has not only created a Japanese logo for the game, but they’ve also produced an English logo too, which suggests that whatever the game is, it will be heading to the West eventually.
Japanese publication My Game News Flash is reporting that Nintendo has filed a trademark for a new game titled ‘The Last Ranger’ or Saigo no Youjimbou (The Last Bodyguard) in Japanese. Nintendo hasn’t hinted if this is referring to a new franchise, or an existing franchise, but it’s interesting nonetheless. Could it be related to the Pokemon Ranger series?
Internet sleuths have detected that Nintendo have just issued a patent for something called the ‘Power Wii’.
Whilst this registered trademark could mean a plethora of different things including a new software title or a new marketing campaign, it is also entirely plausible that it could be a trademark for a new and improved Wii console.
