Sony revives The Last Guardian trademark

Another day, another Last Guardian story. Yes, Team Ico's game is still (technically) alive!

Welcome to the latest episode of "As 'The Last Guardian' Turns." When we last left The Last Guardian, the trademark on the game had lapsed, leaving the game in a state of (further) limbo. While things didn't look good for Team Ico's latest game, there was always the possibility that Sony would file a petition to revive the trademark. It now appears that the company has done just that.

The folks at NeoGAF have followed this story intently, finding Sony's revival petition. The United States Patent and Trademark Office acted quickly and has restored the trademark. All is as it was and so The Last Guardian is still alive... well... as alive as it can be, anyway.

That concludes today's episode of "As 'The Last Guardian' Turns!" Tune in next time, as fans speculate as to whether the game will appear at E3 2015 in any capacity. (Spoiler alert: The answer is 'probably not.')

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
