Koei Tecmo trademarks Iseki Musou and more in Japan; Happinet trademarks Brigandine: Lunasia Senki

Plus other trademarks from Bandai Namco, Game Studio, and Kadokawa Games.

Koei Tecmo has filed various Musou-related trademarks in Japan.

Koei Tecmo’s Musou titles are localized as Warriors titles in the west. The Dynasty Warriors series, for example, is called Shin Sangoku Musou in Japan, and the Samurai Warriors series is called Sengoku Musou. Collaboration titles like Fire Emblem Warriors and Hyrule Warriors are respectively called Fire Emblem Musou and Zelda Musou in Japan.

The list of trademarks include:

Japanese Trademarks: Musou

Also of note, Happinet trademarked “Brigandine: Lunasia Senki” (Record of Lunasia War). Brigandine is a tactical RPG released for PlayStation in April 1998, which was followed up by a remake featuring multiplayer support and many other significant changes in May 2000 called Brigandine: Grand Edition. While the original game was localized by Atlus U.S.A. for North America, Brigandine: Grand Edition was never released outside of Japan. It may be worth noting that this trademark comes just a week following Happinet’s announcement that it will attend Tokyo Game Show 2019 from September 12 to 15. (Update 10:55 p.m.: Gematsu has discovered a placeholder website at brigandine.happinet-games.com.)
