Sony Trademarks "The Last of Us" for Online Games and... All Sorts of Weird Stuff

The Last of Us Remastered is less than a month away from its release, but Sony may have plans to expand the franchise in several directions, some a little less orthodox than others. On June 30th the house of PlayStation filed two new trademarks for “The Last of Us” in order to expand its classes. The original trademark, which is still valid, was only for class 9 (games and downloadable games).

The new trademarks, which you can see at the bottom of the post, expand the mark to class 41 for “providing an on-line computer game,” which may indicate a possible plan to create some sort of online spin-off, but they also cover some absolutely hilarious options like baby bodysuits, briefs, pajamas, socks, plush toys, stationery and temporary tattoo transfers. 

Whether Sony actually plans to produce those items remains to be seen, as it could be a defensive move to protect the mark, but honestly, who wouldn’t want to dress his firstborn with a clicker bodysuit?

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
