Sega No Longer Gunshy?

Gunstar HeroesGameCube Advanced has picked up a report detailing how Sega has recently registered a trademark for something called Gunstar Super Heroes.  Sega declined to comment on the trademark, but it does seem likely that the company is planning a revival of their Contra-like Gunstar Heroes series from the days of the Sega Genesis, Game Gear, and Master System.  It's nice to see that Sega has finally remembered that they own other characters and licenses besides Sonic the Hedgehog.  After all, we're talking about a company that once passed on a proposed Streets of Rage 4 for the Sega Dreamcast because the executives in charge forgot that they owned the license to the original games.  This is also the same company that turned down a third Eternal Champions game for the Sega Saturn because Sega of Japan wanted the next installment of the Japanese-developed Virtua Fighter series to be the Saturn's killer app.  Sega, please don't waste this opportunity.
