Could the latest in the God Eater series (and current Japanese exclusive) God Eater 2: Rage Burst be heading West? It appears likely after the news that Bandai Namco has registered to have “Rage Burst” trademarked in Europe.

Currently the game has been announced only for Japan as a PS Vita and PS4 release, but after today’s news, it is very likely that the game will be getting localized for Western markets.

Of course, there is also the chance that this trademark was made as an early effort to protect the brand globally, which is a move a number of large companies will make in order to safe guard their intellectual property. Still, the chances of the game getting a Western localization have increased with this latest application.

      It should be pointed out that they haven’t been granted the trademark yet, but just that they’ve applied for it. So it’s still very early.

    Oh God, yes! YES!!!

      Stop being so pornographic Lester! The Vita Lounge is a family friendly site! : )

    Best news of the new year! Like Brad stated, companies sometimes do this to protect naming rights in various regions aroung the globe. So my excitement has been raised to the level of cautious optimism (whatever that means lol!). Nonetheless, this is a VERY good sign indeed!

      Agreed even if this were true, more than likely we wouldn’t hear an announcement I think till E3 (assuming Sony will give the Vita stage time). considering we still have to hear an announcement I think a Q3 release can be viewed as somewhat optimistic.

    I came on here JUST to see how excited Lester and Nonscpo would be! Honestly, this game is on my radar solely because of you two! :p

    D: The picture looked so much like something from Guilty Crown that even though it probably won’t happen now if it never happened before for the PSP, I got my hopes up for a Guilty Crown game 😛
