Tales of Asteria, Kanade trademarked in Japan

Maybe it's not called Tales of Zestiria?

That next Tales game might be called “Tales of Asteria” or “Tales of Kanade,” if latest Namco Bandai trademarks are anything to go by.

The publisher filed for the names in Japan on November 1. The entries were made public on the Japanese trademark database today.

Namco Bandai trademarked a whole slew of additional Tales names a couple months back. One of them, “Tales of Zestiria,” was also trademarked in the U.S. and Europe.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
