Square Enix Just Filed Another New Trademark For Parasite Eve

This week in news-that-probably-doesn’t-mean-as-much-as-we-wish-it-did, it seems that Square Enix have filed a new trademark in the UK for Parasite Eve, as reported by Siliconera. This follows a similar trademark filing for the name a few months ago in November 2018 in Europe.

While it’s easy and fun to speculate that this might possibly have something to do with a revival of (then) Squaresoft’s classic horror RPG in the form of a remaster/remake or sequel, it’s far more likely that it precedes a digital release of the original PSX version for the PS4 or mobile platforms. This seems increasingly likely when you consider that the first game never got a wider European release originally.

If the gaming gods did bless us with a modern Parasite Eve game, what would you like to see? A simple HD port, a ground-up remake ala Resident Evil 2 or a proper sequel?

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
