Bandai Namco?s Western territories received three new trademarks, according to a recent filing.

Thanks to a discovery by Gematsu, the three new registrations, four total, were found for United States and Europe and may be a glimpse at future IP?s or spin-offs of current titles. Europe trademarked both ?Burning Blood? and ?Skykid,? the latter of which saw a U.S. and Japanese release on the Wii U Virtual Console.

The U.S. received ?Thousand Storm,? a name which was already filed in Japan earlier this year.

The other trademark, ?Slashy Souls,? appears to be brand new and is the most interesting of the lot, given its obvious similarities to the From Software titles Demon’s Souls and the Bandai Namco?published Dark Souls.

With Bandai Namco scheduled for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, it?s possible some or all of these names will make an appearance.
