Tales of the Best Japanese trademark

Bandai Namco has recently filed several new trademarks in Japan, including:

  • “Balloon Bash”
  • “Brave Scramble”
  • “Tales of the Best”
  • “Mitsukete!”

As trademarks, all we have for any of these are the names. The only one that has any indication as to what it might be is “Tales of the Best”, which sounds like it could potentially be some kind of Tales-series collection. Alternatively, it could be some kind of spin-off from the main series. There is no indication as to what the others may be. Either way, we will likely learn more about these titles before too long.

Other recently-filed trademarks include Nintendo filing for “Splatoon”, which launched at the end of May, and Square Enix with “Dimension W”, a manga series it serializes that is receiving an anime adaptation in 2016.
