Something odd happened quite recently over at the United Kingdom and Europe. In fact, the facts point at Square Enix doing something related to Parasite Eve. This RPG has actually seen yet another spark of life much like Lost Odyssey did in December. What we mean by this is that Square Enix has actually filed a new trademark for Parasite Eve in the UK; hinting at a port or remake.
Parasite Eve Trademark Renewed by Square Enix.
Square Enix trademarked the words “Parasite Eve” in the United Kingdom a few days ago. The process was completed back in February 7 in the Intellectual Property Office of the region. At this, a lot of fans of the PlayStation 1 classic have speculated that Square Enix has some plans for the franchise. Maybe some news about the game will come soon.
The facts point at a possible remake or relaunch of the original game. This trademark is filed under “Computer game software; video game software; sound recordings in the form of optical discs, magnetic discs, semiconductor ROMs featuring music and/or fictional stories.” Leading fans to believe that this could also be a re-release of the original game.
However, another interesting section is the Class 41 agreement. The agreement states that Square Enix can provide “amusement facilities; amusement arcades; providing on-line computer games; providing on-line video games.” This, along many other variations of the agreement have led some fans to believe that there will be additional content related to the game soon. You can look at the agreement below:
All in all, it’s expected that Square Enix might have some news about Parasite Eve in the coming days. It should also be noted that Parasite Eve never had an official launch in Europe. As such, this could also mean a launch for the game for the UK and Europe.
What do you think about the resent renewal of the Parasite Eve Trademark? Do you believe that Parasite Eve will only have a port of the game on the UK and Europe? Would you want to have a remake of the game internationally? Let us know your thoughts at the VGR Forums.
