Pac-Man Maker Trademark Filed By Bandai Namco Hints at Possible New Project
Super Mario Maker released for the Wii U back in 2015, quickly became one of the bestselling games for the console and had some of the most critically lauded uses of the touchscreen controller the Wii U was known for. The 3DS version of the game was not quite as fondly received, mostly for its lack of an online level-sharing function, but still sold well enough in Japan and Europe. Nonetheless, it appears that the game may have been enough of a success to warrant imitations featuring other classic video game characters as Bandai Namco has recently filed a Pac-Man Maker trademark.
A posting on the European Union Intellectual Property Office website shows that Bandai Namco has indeed filed a trademark titled “Pac-Man Maker”. While the trademark does not give any specific details regarding the gameplay that would be involved with the game, or even if it will have a level customization feature like Super Mario Maker. However, considering the similarities of the title to Super Mario Maker, it would be reasonable to infer that this would be the purpose of the game’s existence. This trademark does involve the Nice class which contains trademark classifications for video game machines, computer software, and other various devices commonly associated with gaming.
It should also be noted that the other Nice class involved is for various multimedia platforms, including those for delivering video content and amusement experiences. This information does not confirm that the game is actually in development, it is refreshing to see that Bandai Namco may still have fans to bring the little yellow eater back to the cultural ubiquity he had in the 1980s.
