The maze from Pac-Man is likely seared into the memory of every gamer who has ever played the character’s eponymous arcade debut. But if Bandai Namco’s latest trademark application is any indication, Pac-Fans may soon get the chance to design their own mazes.
According to the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the publisher recently filed a trademark application for a new game known as “Pac-Man Maker.”
As is always the case with trademark applications, there’s a possibility that this filing won’t lead to the announcement or release of a new game. And it’s very possible that Bandai Namco is just squatting on the name after the success of Super Mario Maker.
Either way, I’m sure we’ll learn more about what Bandai Namco has planned for their most-recognizable character soon.
