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

I dont know where I should post this but Bandai Namco has trademark PAC-MAN Maker.

__________ Maker trend has begun. Able to share levels created? Cross platform? This could be big!

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.

I mean I love Pacman, but what exactly can they do in a Maker type game other than create more elaborate mazes?

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.

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.

That throwing stick stunt of yours has boomeranged on us.

Nintendo would have filed the trademark then. This is its own thing.

I wanna play this and I'm having my fingers crossed for a Sonic Maker
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?

Finally Philips' chance to countersue, they had a maze creator option in Munchkin back in 1981.

Needs the ability to switch between classic pixel Pac-Man and Pac-Man Championship Edition visuals.

Bandai-Namco announcing a lot of great stuff lately. This, Code Vein, God Eater 3. Digimom Cyber Sleuth sequel...

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.
