“Discover exciting news about the potential launch of a highly anticipated video game spin-off for a beloved Bandai Namco Filmworks anime. Find out more about the newly surfaced evidence pointing towards this exciting development happening in the near future.”

Bandai Namco is working on a video game tie-in for the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon anime, some recently surfaced evidence suggests. First released in 2020, Yashahime is a spin-off of the hit shojo anime Inuyasha.

Although its later seasons were met with a mixed reception from fans and critics alike, Yashahime was very much among the highlights of the fall 2020 anime lineup. Produced by Sunrise Inc., nowadays known as Bandai Namco Filmworks, the series follows the adventures of sisters Towa Higurashi and Setsuna after they get separated by time-travel shenanigans.

Bandai Namco has recently filed to trademark the term Towa and the Guardians of the Sacred Tree. The classification of the January 22 filing, first spotted by Gematsu, corresponds to a typical video game trademark. Although the very term that the Japanese company is trying to secure doesn't outright confirm this to be a Yashahime spin-off, it contains two elements indicative of a connection to the 2020 anime. For one, there's the apparent mention of Towa herself, as there's only one prominent character with that name in Bandai Namco Filmworks' entire anime portfolio.

Secondly, the "sacred tree" mentioned in the trademark is likely a reference to the eponymous place that's an inherent part of the Inuyasha lore. Also known as Goshinboku, Tree of Ages, and the Era Tree, this sentient being was featured in both Inuyasha and Yashahime over the years. In light of those apparent references to Bandai Namco Filmworks' series, it seems plausible that Yashahime will be joining the ever-growing list of anime with video game adaptations.
