Bandai Namco has filed 3 trademarks in EU today, one for Code Vein, one for Storm Wings (??) and one for PAC-Man Maker, which is the eye catching one



SO to AAMARMO for bringing this up on another thread

Ehm, sure...
I don't know if I would play this, but I think it's the best franchise for Bamco to use for a Super Mario Maker-inspired game. Can't be really bothered tbh.

Definitely mobile.

Need to see what kind of options are available.

Hopefully it includes the ability to add stuff from all the recent PAC-MAN DX games and make some really crazy stuff.

If it's just base PAC-MAN where you get to place ghosts and fruit and draw the maze, it would be kinda boring.

Highly unlikely this would happen but I'm pretty sure Bamco would have to trademark it themselves because they own the Pac-Man trademark.

If they have the options like Super Mario Maker, then the possibilities are endlessish

This needs to have a ton of options to not be DoA. There is a lot less variation you can do with pacman than you could a good 2d platformer.

Another user said Bandai Namco would have to trademark it earlier in the thread as they own the Pac-Man IP. Can anyone confirm which it is?

If they do this right, this could be very fun indeed. Even more so if some of the more crazy things from DX and 256 get added in.
