Namco Bandai Files [email protected]/Shiny Festa Trademarks in U.S.

posted on 2012-12-11 23:16 EST

Namco Bandai Games registered trademarks for The [email protected] and Shiny Festa in the United States on December 3, following its previous trademark filings in Europe. Unlike the European filings, the American filings specifically list "The [email protected]" spelling and note that "the non-Latin characters in the mark transliterate to IDOLU MASTA and this means IDOLMASTER in English."

Unlike most of the previous [email protected] titles in which players manage the careers of aspiring idols characters, The [email protected] Shiny Festa PSP games are in the "idol rhythm" genre.

The three Shiny Festa games, The [email protected] Shiny Festa: Honey Sound, The [email protected] Shiny Festa: Funky Note, and The [email protected] Shiny Festa: Groovy Tune feature a different set of idols from the fictitious studio 765 Pro.

The games shipped in Japan on October 25.
