CC: Sony Computer Entertainment have filed trademarks for several registrations recently. One of them titled 'Legend of Kunoichi'.
i think this one is for the wand guys anyway awesome news no doubt
I hope it's a Zelda competitor. It's the only thing Sony haven't tried to compete with really...
Looks like the hardware giant is up to something again. Sony truly has been on a role lately.
They sure have. I think with all the money they're making now from the PS3 price cut, and the motion controller on the way. I think they could compete with anything.
Definitely, I think some will be motion controlled titles. Though Legend of Kunoichi. I hope it is similar to the likes of Zelda etc. Which reminds me... I wonder if SCEA San Diego will make a follow up to The Mark of Kri, or a game similar in design. I guess they may be too busy with NBA, and MLB The Show though.
Mark of Kri was awesome
Still holding my breath for a Wild Arms 6 or Legend of Dragoon remake/ sequel though. @ below. Give her large breasts, a French maid outfit, shotgun barrels for nipples and chainsaw in each hand and call her "Slayonetta": you have a world-wide success on your hands.
give her large breast and an erotic outfit and it will sell in japan. give her a gun and she'll be loved in america. lol jk id rather her not have a gun. but you know what would be cool is if they used that bow and arrow they showed at e3, that kinda looked fun.
"with all the money they're making now from the PS3 price cut" I believe Sony is still losing money on the PS3. I haven't read that they're turning profit yet.
Wild Arms 6 was rumored to be shown behind closed doors back at TGS last year, and Sony Japan is rumored to be working on a big RPG so LoD2 is possible.
Legend of Kunoichi has a nice ring to it. I like the idea of a female ninja game. I'm excited to see what that turns out to be. The other 3 just sound like motion controller mini-game sorts of things.
Actually I believe Sony is still losing money on the PS3 but it makes you wonder what the frack is nintendo doing with all the profits they make on the Wii and DS?If Sony are able continue to hemorage money and continue to pump out top quality exclusives year after year(multiple games per year) why can't Nintendo do better with all their profits? Really I want Sidar and his band of Wiitards to answer this question, don't disagree just answer my question.
Smells like Tenchu with a chick as protagonist.
Anyone besides me see the reference here. LEgend of Kunochi ooo I don't know Legend of Dragoon? RPG?
LMAO!! Will Slayonetta slap Kratos too? Tune in next week on HHG. Anyways, on a more serious note. Could this game be the infamous "Silhouette" game that Gamesblow was talking about? ^^^ Don't be surprised to see that last question as a title for an upcoming article on N4G. :P
Sounds like it maybe either a RPG or Action Title
sounds like a female ninja game.
Anyway it sounds cool. Ninja always are.
Yeah! :D Love me some ninja games.
It'll be like Tenchu.
But not like a recent Tenchu, yes? The controls on the last one(whether you played it on the Wii or PSP) were awful, clunky and barely usable at some points and have been getting progressively worse as the once great series has aged. However, sort out the controls, set it somewhere cool(so as not to ape Tenchu)and introduce a lot of RPG elements and you could have an amazing game.
Sony needs more Pirate games.
But its main demographic are on the 360 and PC :).
I love pirate themes. Though there wasn't good game for years... Or I'm missing something.
Trademarking does not necessarily mean anything will ever come of it, there's always plenty of time for it to get scrapped or cancelled - don't expect to see anything about this in the near future.
If the precision from yr movements are also as accurate asdamage on enemys, angle on bodypart etc well... ...It will own natal!
it will be another PSN game, sigh....
No sorry, that's just my pants. Same thing though.
is a Japanese name for the SEGA game, Nightshade. The Shinobi Side game about the female Ninja. Probably not a connection, just happens to have the same name.
Its the general name for female ninjas.
mjolliffe, not sure if you are connected to this piece/site in anyway, but the title should be "SCEI trademarks 'Legend of Kunoichi' amongst others". SCEI is treated as an single corporate entity (it's an "it" not a "they"), so it "trademark*S*" something. Generally it's: "Sony is," not "Sony are"; "Microsoft isn't," not "Microsoft aren't", though there can be some exceptions. 'Just being picky because it's such a common error in article titles around here and sites that want to appear professional should adhere to some basic rules.
instead of a female ninja game i want heavenly sword 2. Play3beyond
is this the rumored "Sihlouette" game that our infamous friend gamesblow has talked about for the past 2 years? He did say it was a ninja game. the likes of which would blow NG out of the water. i remembered someone on this site other than gamesblow stating that he claimed to have seen the game as well. E3 is going to be pretty interesting this year.
then GamesBlow can shove a giant crow down everybody's throat.
according to some people who have "Claimed" to have seen this game, the title Sihlouette, is just the codename for the game.
he did say something about a ninja game...hmmmmm...
