Square Enix files trademark for Parasite Eve in the UK

Square Enix trademarked “Parasite Eve in the United Kingdom the other day, following the same trademark that was filed in Europe back in November 2018.

Unlike Square Enix’s recent Mana series-related trademarks in the United States and Europe, the Parasite Eve trademark has only been registered in Europe and the United Kingdom in recent months.
Considering the first Parasite Eve never released in Europe, Square Enix could be planning a port or digital release via PS one Classics’ PAL region in the near future. That or a mobile port.

It was a travesty that PE1 never got released in PAL regions. My first introduction was with PE2. And it wasn't great but not bad. Only played PE1 for the 1st time on PS3 with a US account. PE1 was fantastic though. The 90's up to the PS3 was hard being a jrpg and japanese game fan if you lived in PAL territory.

NEVER FORGET:messenger_angry:

Didn't even know it was never released in the EU until I read it in the article, yet I knew about the game and Aya:messenger_smirking:
PE2 was released and their was coverage for the PE as well but it just didn't get a release.
I imported mine.
One can hope this is a Remake or a port but it's likely a Mobile port.

I never played this back in the day, only caught up thanks to the Super Best Friends LP and boy does the body horror hold up.

Shit's fucked, man :messenger_fearful: I don't think any Resident Evil before RE2make ever made me want to look away from the screen, but Parasite Eve manages to do that in more or less every cutscene.

Do you reckon they'd be able to pull such things off in the HD era without getting a big ol' slap on the wrist from the ratings board?

As do I and I think it's a perfect fit if you look at RE2 and the likes, Eve would do extremely well with upgraded graphics.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA! It would be a huge success! Especially now that RE2 showed how good a survival horror can be. Plus with the whole strong female protagonist thing that's around right now, it would surely help it a lot!(don't get me wrong, I'm very okay with it.) And honestly, it'd be really weird for SE not to remake it considering they REEEALLY like to follow popular gaming trends. They said they took inspiration from COD to make FF13... lol

The series is so thoroughly camped in 90s Japanese horror/sci-fi that I can't see a new one working. Hopefully it's a remake/remaster.

I do love these types of games though. Dino Crisis is another of those weird-but-great cult PSX titles.

Not being funny but if they don't own or have the rights how can they register the name.
Especially in countries it never originally released.
Wouldn't they like in every other case involving this sort of stuff have to rename it.

Wasn't there another thread like this?

Regardless it's 21 years late. If the wait was a human, he would just now be legaly allowed to drink to forget he lost an arm and a leg in thr war 3 years ago.

Now bring Chrono Cross next.
