AQ Interactive has just registered a U.S. trademark for the name Away: Shuffle Dungeon. This leads us to one of two conclusions: they're thinking of releasing the game over here, or they're just trying to keep some jerk from making a game called Away: Shuffle Dungeon. It's ... probably not that. We doubt any other publisher would be that audacious (nor would they have a reason to be).
This is good news for a couple of reasons: first, and most obviously, we assume that there are people in the U.S. who would like the opportunity to play the dungeon crawler, and this is encouraging for them. Second, the fact that AQ Interactive is doing something like this makes it seem more likely that Mistwalker is going to finish and release the game at some point.
