Sony Computer Entertainment has filed a quartet of new trademarks that may offer a peek into the PlayStation 3 and PSP maker's upcoming software plans, including a new ninja game.
Of the four new trademarks filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office, it's only Legend of Kunoichi that gives us a sense of what Sony has planned, something starring a female ninja on some PlayStation platform. And it's likely not a reference to Sega's PlayStation 2 sequel to Shinobi, known as Nightshade in the West, Kunoichi in Japan.
Three other titles, Smashbreak, Digi-tiles and Earthshield, sure sound like smaller puzzle or arcade games, the type of content that wouldn't surprise us if they ultimately turn out to be PSP minis releases. Another option? Smaller games for the PlayStation 3's motion controller.
