Sony has recently registered two new trademarks with the Japanese Patent and Trademark Office

The first is for Boku to Maou, which is the original Japanese name of Okage: Shadow King, released by Sony in 2001 for PS2, and developed in collaboration witb Zener Works.

The second is for Hajimari no Boken, which is the subtitle of Popolocrois: Adventure of Beginnings, the fourth game of the Popolocrois series, also released on PS2 in 2002.

Both trademarks were filed under the 9 class, which is obviously for games.

We don’t know whether Sony intends to bring back the two games as part of its prolific Game Archives series, or to revive them in some other way, but they surely bring back fond memories.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
