Sony files trademark for "Arc The Lad"

Many of you will remember the ‘Arc the Lad‘ RPG games released for the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 some years ago. The games, published by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCEI) in Japan, were never released in the west until publisher Working Designs brought them over in a collection in 2002.

The last game in the series was released back in 2004 and since that time the franchise seemed to be completely abandoned.

However, Sony might be considering to revive the franchise.

On November 22nd Sony filed trademark for “Arc The Lad” for “Computer game software, video game software, video game machine for use with televisions for personal use, computer and video games on CD ROMs; and video game cartridges,” and rumors began to spread quickly on the Internet.

This could simply be a renewal of the trademark, but  it could also mean that Sony is planning an Arc The Lad game for the PlayStation 4 or PS Vita.

Thanks, IGN.
