Galaga Defense From Bandai Namco? Rodea: The Sky Soldier Also Re-trademarked In Japan

imageBandai Namco Games looks like they have a new Galaga game in the works and it may not be a pure shoot ’em up. The publisher filed trademarks for Galaga Defense, Galaga Wars, and Galaga Bandits in Japan. Usually, when three trademarks are filed, one of them will be used for a new game.


Kadokawa Games, the makers of Demon Gaze and now the owner of Dark Souls developer From Software, filed trademarks for The Lost Child, God Wars Frontier, and Rodea: The Sky Soldier. You may remember Rodea since it was developed by Yuji Naka’s studio Prope, but was never released even though the game was finished. A re-registered trademark means Kadokawa Games hasn’t forgotten about it.


Marvelous AQL, makers of Half-Minute Hero, filed a trademark for Dungeon Fever too.

    I still believe, Yuji Naka. I still believe.

      Damn, u took the word out of my mouth.T_T

      I hope this game won’t had the same problem facing our good old Last Guardian here.


      • Solomon_Kano

        We’re certainly looking at a similar situation. Maybe someday they’ll both return.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Now Galaga is an old arcade series I don’t mind them bringing back. It hasn’t seen much activity at all lately (outside of the ShiftyLook comic they canceled), so they’re hardly milking it. Now let’s hope these perspective games stick with the arcade-style gameplay ratther than trying to modernize it.

    I still want to see a Tower of Druaga revival though.

  • PreyMantis

    I guess they’ll be switching Wii to Wii U.

  • I was wondering what happened to Rodea. Hopefully we’ll see it sometime this year.

  • Anon-non

    Please tell me they’re bringing back Namco Generations.

  • Alphabet Soup

    Rodea, yeay! In addition to Yuji Naka, it has the scenario writer from Tales of Symphonia/the Abyss working on it, so I really do hope it comes out.
