Level-5 has filed a trademark for both the titles "Black Market" and "Akihabara Black Market," which could mean that the developer of Dark Cloud
and Professor Layton
might be working on a new game based in the shadier parts of Japan's real-life Akihabara "Electric Town" district
, well known as a haven for gadgeteers and fanboys.
Level-5 also filed a (probably unrelated) trademark for something called "Cyberanimals." These could be the titles the company is working on with Capcom
, and/or they could represent projects planned for the 3DS
next year. We'll have to wait and see.
