EA has filed a trademark for SimOcean. We don’t know a blessed thing more, but before you get too excited, consider that the SimCity reboot means it’s a great time to make some defensive registrations, and that Maxis’s Glassbox Engine does a lot of really funky things, some of which EA would be mad not to copyright. Good that? Good. Now go forth and speculate about The-Sims-meets-Spongebob to your hearts content.

What is The Blast Furnace? No idea, but Activision seems quite keen on it.

Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax Media, has applied with the USPTO for six different trademarks covering the the Skyrim shout, “Fus Ro Dah”. No idea what it could be for, but it the various trademarks apply to “computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices; cell phone cases; downloadable cell phone ringtones; digital tablet cases; smart phone cases; mouse pads; eyeglass cases; head phones, t-shirts, toys” and many, many more things. Thanks, Fusible.

Pac-Man Smash? Oh please be a Smash Bros. style brawler.

A trademark filed by Zenimax Media around the end of February, and totally missed by us, may possibly hint at a possible expansion plan for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

One of THQ’s multiple secret projects may have just become slightly less mysterious.

EA’s latest foray into the wonderful world of board games sounds like an extreme makeover of a game normally associated with pensioners.

At first we thought Pokemon Adventure Camp had something to do with the event of the same name which took place at GuilFest in Surrey last year; however, as Siliconera points out, the trademark was filed by Nintendo, the Nintendo-exclusive game developer Game Freak, and Nintendo subsidiary Creatures, Inc. Whole ‘otta Nintendo going on with this, isn’t there? Furthermore, the site points out it’s a game trademark, not a festival trademark, so if this pans out, we could be looking at another Pokemon game in our future. [image]

Double Fine has told Gamespot that its recent trademark filing for The Cave has nothing to do with the firm’s Kickstarter project.

NeoGAF has dug up another Square Enix trademark, this one for something called Sleeping Dogs, leading some to speculate it’s a subtitle for Kane & Lynch 3 due to the subtitle of the last outing, Dog Days. A job posting from IO Interactive back in September 2011 suggested that a third Kane & Lynch was in the works, and Ian Livingstone himself said in December 2010 the duo weren’t going away any time soon. You can view the trademark filing here, which lists a January 13 date.

Square has trademarked something called Final Fantasy Dimensions in the US and Europe. Dug up by a NeoGAF user, the trademark was filed on January 16, and the domain FinalFantasyDimensions.com has been registered as well. Theories on the trademark range from a Vita title in the works from 1st Production Department, to a game already released in Japan but getting a name change in the west. Thanks, Gematsu.

Siliconera has unearthed – and translated – two Japanese trademarks made by Square Enix. The first is the short and sweet Root of the Underworld, while the other runs on a bit as Door of the Underworld and the Path of Nayuta. Square Enix has indicated it intends to flesh out its portfolio of franchise properties, with a couple of new titles already in the works.

Square Enix has filed a trademark in Japan for a title called Gunslinger Stratus. A search through the USPTO found no trace of it, but that doesn’t mean anything just yet. The trademark, dug up by Andriasang, doesn’t really state much, but we’re betting it’s one of the “two to three” new IPs the firm said it’s working on. Last week, the firm listed recruitment ads for a new action RPG for PS3 and Vita, as well as another action-RPG in development, which featured teaser artwork. We’ll send a mail, but we don’t expect Square to give up any secrets just yet.

Capcom Japan has filed a trademark for a game called E.X. Troopers in the US and Europe. Spotted by Siliconera, its sounds to us like a shooter where you will play a trooper of some sort. We have no creative thought as to what the initials E.X. would stand for, though. Maybe extreme? Extreme Troopers? If that’s the case, maybe it’s mechs. Who knows. As usual, we’ll send a mail. Thanks, Joystiq.

Siliconera spotted a pair of mysterious new trademark filings from Square Enix Japan, both for logos with no descriptive text. No, we have no idea what they’re for; presumably the publisher doesn’t want us to, or there’d be some words on it. Enjoy in full-sized, low-res glory through the break.
