Bandai Namco Filed 13 Trademarks for Classic Games

We all have our favorite games from childhood, especially when they feel timeless. These games are so iconic that you can even enjoy them now. Bandai Namco is one of the publishers that gave us these fantastic masterpieces. Many fans lately have asked for the revival or remake of some such games, but it is likely we won’t see that happen.

One of the reasons for that is because they belong to that aura, and a remake now with better quality and mechanics might not be the thing we need. They are more likely to fail; nonetheless, Bandai Namco has revisited some of the oldest titles and given us a wave of nostalgia.

These images were posted on Reddit by user LongJonSilver, who acquired them directly from public websites, so this information is not any leak of sorts. It is still rare to see when a company pays attention to some of its oldest titles in one day.

These include Taiko no Tatsujin, Family Jiam-Tas, Tower of Druaga, Zukeda Tower of Druaga, Xenosaga, STARLUSTER, Solvalou, Side M, PAC-WORLD, GALAXIAN, DRAGON SPIRIT, DIGDUG, and BATTLE CITY.

It doesn’t necessarily mean they are working on their remakes, as these pop up quite often, and most often, we get some information about these games later on. However, it can take anywhere from days to years before we do.

If you are unaware of how trademarks work, any word, phrase, symbol, design, or combination of these things that identifies your goods or services is called a trademark. It’s how customers recognize you in the marketplace and distinguish you from your competitors.

For those who have been subconsciously waiting for the revival of these games, it is still a glimmer of hope. They may not make remakes, but something else might be cooking, as we saw with PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC. Nevertheless, don’t keep your hopes too high. Instead, this might be an excuse to revisit those games, as each one of these served us well in the arcades and homes.

Who knows, Bandai Namco might surprise us, or maybe we are too hopeful. Regardless, let us know about your first game experience as a child, and we will get back to you in the comments below!
