Bandai Namco trademarks Narutimate Braves, Narutimate Blazing, and Narutimate Wars

New Naruto games on the way?

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

Bandai Namco has filed three new Naruto-related trademarks in Japan.

All three marks were filed on August 26 and made public today. They are:

In Japan, “Narutimate” is a Naruto series subtitle. For example, the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series is known as Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm in Japan. It’s a combination of the words “Naruto” and “Ultimate.”

Bandai Namco has yet to announce any new Naruto games with these titles. But perhaps we’ll see them in the near future.

Thanks, Game Kana.

Update: Following Narutimate Wars, Narutimate Blazing, and Narutimate Braves, Bandai Namco also filed trademarks for English counterparts Ultimate Ninja Wars, Ultimate Ninja Blazing, and Ultimate Ninja Braves in Japan.
