According to a recently uncovered list of Japanese trademarks, Namco Bandai has laid claim to EXCALIBUR, ostensibly a videogame property about King Arthur’s loyal metallic wingman who – for obvious reasons (swords are cool) – ended up stealing the show.

We’d normally feel kind of sneaky reporting this, but we’re guessing Namco Bandai wanted everyone to know about its ownership of EXCALIBUR, or else the publisher wouldn’t have screamed right into our eyes with the title “EXCALIBUR.” Seriously guys, what’d we ever do to you?

Thanks, Joystiq.
