Namco Bandai trademarks Ridge Racer Accelerated in Japan

Ever vigilant in that department, Siliconera has unearthed another Japanese trademark, this time from Namco Bandai. It seems the company has registered something called Ridge Racer Accelerated, and if I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably a new Ridge Racer game. Thanks, scientific method!

Nothing is known about it yet, obviously, but it’s certainly been a while since we had a new Ridge Racer title, and I’m pleased to hear it’s (probably) coming back. Is it a Wii title? A hot new HD console release? It’s Ridge Racer, which is all I need to hear, but you guys feel free to take a guess if you like.
