According to the patent info, Blizzard has trademarked something called “Mists of Pandaria”. Even better, it looks like it’s a game rather than a book or an expansion for the TCG. Yes, if this is correct, we could finally be seeing everyone’s most-wanted race. Of course, the Pandaren have been in-game for a while in the form of a non-combat pet and allusions to them in the lore since the days of Warcraft. I can certainly see myself wandering the misty Asian-inspired lands of these adorable creatures but where it’s real or not, well that remains to be seen.
So, folks, for now keep calm and carry on. It might not be real (but it probably is) and we’re just going to have to wait till BlizzCon to find out. If we find out anything more, we’ll be sure to let you know. If you’re really keen, you can also check out the patent paperwork here
