Bandai Namco Trademarks Slew of Titles; Possible All-New Game IPs Included


Japanese gaming publisher Bandai Namco has provided players with a hint at its future plans, as the company this week filed a series of trademarks relating to a number of different titles.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, the studio applied for European trademarks for Skies Unknown, The Precious 12 and Fortune Gears – three titles that have not previously been announced in any form. It is possible that Skies Unknown may relate to the recently confirmed Ace Combat 7, but the latter two are completely unknown.

Additionally, Bandai Namco also filed a trademark application for Pac-Man: Wild Edition in Australia, suggesting yet another title featuring its seminal mascot is in the works.

All of the above trademarks were filed in Nice classes 9, 28, or 41 – or a combination of the three. As it relates to video games, these classes cover video game software, arcade machines, and online gameplay, respectively.

Of these new IPs, it appears Pac-Man: Wild Edition and Skies Unknown will feature online play in some capacity.
