Universal Entertainment filed a trademark for the classic JRPG series, Shadow Hearts. The trademark was filed on April 27th in Japan and made public on May 11th. The original game released on November 6th, 2003 followed by Shadow Hearts: Covenant on February 19, 2004. One year later, Shadow Hearts: From the New World released on July 28th, 2005. All three games were exclusive to the PS2.
The series could potentially return with the PlayStation Plus relaunch as classic PS2 games are confirmed for the Premium Tier. However, the possibility is best left up to speculation as the lineup of games has not been confirmed. The full rollout schedule for the new PlayStation Plus service is available here.
