Acquire trademarks Stealth Assassins in Japan; Capcom trademarks DarkstalkersThe latest notable trademarks from Japan.
Tenchu series developer Acquire filed a trademark for “Stealth Assassins” in Japan on July 20. “Stealth Assassins” is the western subtitle of the first Tenchu game released in 1998. Rights to the property are owned by FromSoftware, however.
Additionally, Capcom filed a trademark for “Darkstalkers” alongside filings for “Capcom Cup,” “Capcom Fighters,” “Capcom Pro Tour,” “Street Fighter League” (2), and “World Warriors Challenge.”
In less notable new filings, GungHo Online Entertainment trademarked “Koutetsu Juuki Volta-X“—the Japanese title for Volta-X, which has yet to be officially announced for the region—and Sega trademarked its newly announced “Phantasy Star Online: New Genesis” (without the “2” in the title, oddly enough).
