● Intelligent Systems Co., Ltd. (Fire Emblem, Paper Mario, WarioWare, Pushmo etc) applied for a カクトデール (literally ‘Kakutodale’) trademark in Japan for purposes including ‘program for home video game machine’, ‘program for a home video game machine that can be downloaded’ and ‘program for smartphone’.
● This is Intelligent Systems’ first trademark since 27 March 2015 with two Fire Emblem ∅ (Cipher) related trademarks.
