Comuken, A Social Networking Service… From Capcom?

imageCapcom filed a trademark for Comuken in the US and it isn’t for a video game.


Comuken can be used for social networking services, computer software for social networking, social networking on mobile phones and video game consoles, a service that provides online multiplayer games, video game competitions, and… painting competitions.


Unless Capcom plans to open an art gallery, we’re going to guess this is some kind of social networking service. Perhaps, one that lets players find competitors for fighting games since the trademark covers video game competitions too. Facebook for fighting game challengers sounds kind of interesting.

  • Also a way to monitor their customers’ preferences without them having to fill out those inane surveys which are probably ignored 9 times out of 10.

  • rar, though painting competitions sound interesting. At least it’s something new, right?

  • liamscanlan

    Actually, it’s an online game:

    It has the class 41 because it has to do with Capcom “providing computer games to others that may be accessed via the Internet”.

    That same trademark application also lists “providing on-line interactive multiplayer games”.

    So yeah, it’s definitely an online game.
