  • Desert Strike trademarks pop up

    EA has filed two trademarks for Desert Strike, which you may recall as a 16-bit era isometric action strategy hybrid which spawned a series of five games ending with 1997 N64, PC and PSOne release Nuclear Strike. There’s been no indication the publisher intends to resurrect the beloved property, unfortunately, so don’t get too excited […]

  • Activision's Call of Duty: Space Warfare trademark gone

    Despite all our hopes for the future of the Call of Duty franchise being placed entirely on the possibility of the existence of a Space Warfare subfranchise, it doesn’t look like that’s going to be reversing all the negativity thrown at the blockbuster series by fans of Battlefield any time soon, as the trademark for […]

  • Bully trademark reminds us Rockstar promised to revisit PS2 classic

    Take Two has filed a new trademark for Bully, which may just be the regular cycle of good business practice but is a great excuse for speculation. Bully, otherwise known as Canis Canem Edit, was developed by Rockstar Vancouver, which went on to lead Max Payne 3. In the interim, it’s probably been busy helping […]

  • Blizzard trademarks "cute but deadly"

    Blizzard has filed a US trademark for the phrase “cute but deadly” across a variety of goods and services. Don’t get too excited, though – the publisher has not picked up the trademark as it pertains to video games. Looks like a merchandising drive is in the works to me. Thanks, Gamespot.

  • Lost Swords trademark filed in Europe by Namco Bandai

    Namco Bandai has filed a trademark in Europe for something called Lost Swords. The trademark encompass various video game jargon, and as Siliconera points out, it doesn’t seem to be connected to any particular title in Japan. While it could be something new it could also be a subtitle or a name change for a […]

    According to Siliconera, Shaquille O’Neal’s licensing company, Mine O’ Mine, has filed a swathe of gaming-related trademarks for “Shaq Fu”, the title of a 16-bit era game starring the NBA favourite.

  • Killer Instinct trademark dispute settled

    Fox and Microsoft have signed a coexistence agreement regarding their rival claims to the Killer Instinct trademark. Under the terms of the agreement, as uploaded by NeoGAF users, Fox promises not to raise objections to Microsoft’s trademarking of or use of the phrase. Presumably this means the TV show that started the drama won’t be […]

  • Fantasy Life trademark filed in the US

    A western release of Level-5 and Brownie Brown’s unusual sim Fantasy Life seems more and more likely. In addition to a European trademark filed last month, Siliconera reports the developer has moved to secure a US one. Unfortunately, there’ve been no rumblings from any of the usual publishers, but perhaps a 3DS eShop release is […]

The developer posted an […]

  • Lara Croft: Reflections trademark filed by Square Enix

    Square Enix Europe has filed a US trademark application for something called Lara Croft: Reflections, the sleuths at Siliconera report. We have absolutely no idea what it might be – although we know it’s not single-player DLC for Tomb Raider – but the title may suggest some sort of smaller spin-off project, like Lara Croft […]
