Clap Hanz trademarks Clap Hanz Golf in Japan; IzanagiGames trademarks World’s End Club

Plus a couple of Bandai Namco and Sega trademarks.

Everybody's Golf

Everybody’s Golf / Hot Shots Golf series developer Clap Hanz has trademarked “Clap Hanz Golf” in Japan, and IzanagiGames has trademarked “World’s End Club.”

While the Everybody’s Golf / Hot Shots Golf series is owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment, it is possible Clap Hanz is currently working on an independent golf title. The studio has only ever created games for Sony Interactive Entertainment, however, so it is also possible it is expanding to non-golf titles and will use “Clap Hanz Golf” as branding for future golf titles.

As for “World’s End Club,” the trademark is similar to one of IzanagiGames’ previously announced upcoming titles, Death March Club. It is possible this will be a new name for the title, which has been silent since its last appearance at Tokyo Game Show 2019, given the recent release of its other, similarly titled game, Death Come True.

Here is the full list of this week’s notable new trademarks:
