EA trademarks Darkspore name

The Darth Vader side of Spore?

EA has been spotted trademarking the name Darkspore.

A total of three trademarks have been filed, and were found by superannuation.

Is this the TBA Spore title EA announced during a recent financial report? That game, "Spore Title TBA", is planned for Q4 FY11 (between January - April 2011).

We may find out more during tomorrow's EA earnings call, which will discuss the whole of last year and the road that lies ahead.
