UPDATE: The first version of this story failed to give proper credit to IGN's original report on the Arc the Lad trademark filing, its author, and the IGN reader who discovered it. PSU regrets and apologizes for this mistake. --Kyle Prahl, Editor-in-chief

Original: On November 22, Sony filed a trademark for its classic JRPG series Arc the Lad.

An image of the trademark filing can be found below:

This could be a ray of hope for classic JRPG enthusiasts longing for revival. The last game in the series was Arc the Lad: End of Darkness, which released in North America in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. While this doesn’t confirm that Sony is restoring the property in the form of a new game, it’ll certainly spark the interests of avid followers.

Could this be the start of a new entry in the series for the PS4 or Vita, or is Sony simply trying to protect its property?
