Might be too early (last time the trademark came much closer to the announcement) but this sounds like the type of title for a FFXIV expansion, especially since there is some validity to it being a water based expansion.

What I want: A mobile spin-off game with Lightning, Cloud, Squall, and Tidus, where you fight monsters by making weather puns.

What it probably is: Not that.

Yeah, thinking this is definitely for FFXIV. All signs have pointed towards 4.0 taking us to Ala Mhigo, and considering that the patron deity of said nation-state is Rhalgr – who is associated with lightning in FFXIV lore – this trademark starts to make a lot of sense as a potential title for that expansion. That, and it matches the naming convention established with Heavensward.

Just announced a mobile game so I'd place my money on an FFXIV expansion, or something wacky that's only tangential to gaming.

What it isn't, is a legitimate new IP for PC/consoles lol. Square feels full up on those.

Storm Cloud! Lightning Storm! Storm Squall! Tidus Storm!

...I will buy your game as I am behind everything it stands for.
