Rumour: Sega Is Working On Skies of Arcadia Remake

Trademark renewal suggests the cult RPG could be getting a new set of wings
Skies of Arcadia is one of Sega's most beloved RPGs, having turned heads on both the Dreamcast and GameCube a few years ago. The GameCube version is now quite a collector's item, as it added content and generally improved on the Dreamcast original.
It would appear that Sega hasn't forgotten how popular the adventures of Vyse and company are with lifelong fans, as it has just renewed the trademark for the name.
Before we get too excited, this could simply mean that Sega is attempting to safeguard the title to prevent it being used by other companies, but we'd prefer to think that an updated version of the game is coming, possibly with HD visuals and possibly for the Wii U. This would certainly tie in with Sega's current strategy regarding its back catalogue.
Alternatively, it could mean a sequel is on the way - which is just as exciting, if not more so.
