Sega makes mysterious Samurai Bloodshow trademark

Normally a few incautious trademarks give away exactly what a publisher is doing, but we have no idea where Sega is going with an enigmatically Spanish samurai title.

Siliconera reports Sega Japan has filed a trademark for Samurai Bloodshow: Les Vagues Blanches, Les Nuages Rouges, which it translates as “The White Waves, The Red Clouds”.

The trademark is US-based, and specifically for home consoles, not arcade machines.

I’m banking on a spaghetti-Western style samurai epic set south of the border. I don’t care which one.

Keep an eye on E3 – we can but hope.
