Electronic Arts files trademark applications for Road Trippin’

NBA Jam On Fire Edition

Electronic Arts Inc filed two trademark applications for Road Trippin’ with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on August 30, 2011.

The trademark filings (serial numbers 85410328 and 85410322) deal with computer game software and entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game.

While no information has been given publicly by EA in regards to what the plans are for Road Trippin’, one would guess that it has to do with a sports game considering the phrase “road tripping” is used to describe the trips taken by sports teams to play away games.

In October, EA is planning to release the downloadable game NBA Jam: On Fire Edition. 

One of the features offered in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is the game mode “Road Trip” that allows you to play all the NBA teams.  In addition to the game mode, there is also an in-game chievement on the Xbox called “Road Trippin” that you can aim for if you complete the road trip.

Mattel actually has an active trademark on Road Trippin’ (serial number 78681197) dating back to 2005 that has to do with toys, games and playthings, namely, handheld unit for playing electronic games.

Here’s a closer look at the EA filings.
