Trademark for Parasite Eve Appears In Europe

Published

 on

Eight years have passed since Square Enix did anything with action role-playing franchise Parasite Eve, but news that the title of the series has been given a new trademark in Europe has raised hopes among fans.

Parasite Eve was originally released in 1998 for the original PlayStation, where it received high praise from critics for its real-time combat system and high quality cutscenes. The sequel was subsequently released in 2000, incorporated survival horror elements.

A third Parasite Eve title was released on the PlayStation Portable in 2010, but switched out the RPG format in favour of becoming a first-person shooter.

The reveal of the trademark has prompted much speculation. Square Enix has previously worked on adapting its franchises to the mobile and handheld market, including Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy, so Parasite Eve may see an adaption into a mobile title. Other commentators have noted the success of remastered versions of classic 90s franchises such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon and are wondering if Square Enix is planning to head in that direction.

Whatever the result, further developments can be followed by keeping an eye on OnlySP Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has posted an advertisement on LinkedIn for both an audio designer and senior audio designer, sparking rumours of a Spider-Man sequel.

The recent hirings indicate that Insomniac is indeed working on something new for PlayStation fans to enjoy. With Spider-Man being such a massive hit alongside an officially licensed comic expanding on Insomniac’s Spider-verse, players could get a sequel sooner rather than later.

The official job posting requirements for the senior audio designer are as follows:

“Responsible for being an active and key contributor for the creative direction and style for audio assets and workflow processes throughout a production cycle. Creates, edits, and implements game-ready audio. Works closely with the rest of the audio team to maintain a high level of quality and consistency of assets.”

While the job posting does not guarantee a sequel, PlayStation fans can rest easy knowing another juicy exclusive is in the pipeline.
