If Tales of fans are lucky, Namco Bandai might have some more stateside releases up its sleeve. The publisher recently filed a second U.S. trademark for Tales of Hearts, which was first released on Nintendo DS in Japan in 2007.
The first trademark was filed back in '08, but the new one also applies to downloadable video game software. While Namco Bandai could just be protecting the title, this also hints at the possibility of a digital download release for Hearts.
The RPG was made available in two versions, one with anime cutscenes produced by Production I.G, and another with CG cinematics produced by Shirogumi. A few characters crossed over from other Namco titles, too, like Tales of Symphonia's Irving, Tales of the Abyss' Jade, Tekken's Heihachi, Xenosaga's KOS-MOS, Tower of Druaga's Gilgamesh, and good ol' Klonoa.
