Bandai Namco Entertainment filed a trademark for "Ultimate Ninja Blazing" in Europe on Tuesday. Bandai Namco Entertainment filed a similarly named "Narutimate Blazing" trademark in Japan last September, along with "Narutimate Braves" and "Narutimate Wars."
The "Narutimate" word is used in Japan as a subtitle for video games in the Naruto franchise, such as Narutimate Storm, Narutimate Accel, or Narutimate Hero. The Narutimate Storm series is titled Ultimate Ninja Storm in the West.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released its Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (Naruto Shippūden: Narutimate Storm 4) fighting game in Japan on last Thursday, in Europe last Friday, and in North America on Tuesday. The game is the latest installment in the Ultimate Ninja Storm fighting game series.
