Shadow Hearts trademark spotted, possibly for PS Plus Premium
A new trademark has been filed by Universal Entertainment in Japan for the PlayStation 2 RPG series shadow heartspotentially suggesting that at least one of the three titles could be part of PS Plus Premium start the range. Spotted by Gematsu, this is a possible indicator of the types of games we can expect to play at the end of June on the service. The brand joins the siphon filter series in recent renewals, potentially hinting at what’s to come for subscribers.
The Shadow Hearts series is a trilogy of titles: the original game was released on PS2 in 2003 and received two sequels in Commitment and From the New World In the following years. Developed by Japanese team Sacnoth (later renamed Nautilus), Shadow Hearts is set “from the late 1890s to the 1920s, following different casts of characters caught up in supernatural mysteries. The setting combines alternate history and cosmic horror, with real-world characters making appearances, and each title has multiple endings.” All three entries were fairly well received by critics when they launched.
Shadow Hearts now joins the Siphon Filter, Mr. Driller, Ridge Racer 2, Tekken 2, Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party games as potential PS Plus Premium inclusions. And with the revamped service launching just weeks away in Asian territories, surely Sony must be planning to lift the lid on the full lineup sooner rather than later.
