Imageepoch and Capcom’s tournament fighting RPG, Last Ranker, may be ranking on NPD’s sales charts.
Why? Capcom filed a trademark for Last Ranker in the U.S., a pretty good sign that Capcom is planning an international release. Unlike other publishers, Capcom doesn’t haphazardly register trademarks.
Zig is the main character of Last Ranker. He’s a fighter in a world of combatants aiming to be the top ranker in the world. The game is based on shounen tournaments which emphasize the relationships of the characters during combat.
Last Ranker is scheduled to come out on PSP next year in Japan.
Update: While checking for Okamiden and Ghost Trick I noticed Capcom registered Last Ranker in the European trademark database too. They seem pretty serious about protecting this game.
