Bandai Namco trademarks A.W. Phoenix Festa in Europe

The Asterisk War PS Vita game seemingly headed westward.

The Asterisk War for PS Vita

Bandai Namco has trademarked “A.W. Phoenix Festa” in Europe.

The trademark is likely the localized title for the PS Vita game The Asterisk War: The Academy City of the Water Houka Kenran, which launched in Japan in January. “A.W.” in this case, would stand for “Asterisk War,” while “Phoenix Festa” is the name of the tournament held by the academy in which the series is set.

Bandai Namco has yet to announce a western release for the PS Vita game.
