Square Enix may be planning to bring out a new version of its Japanese MMO Fantasy Earth: Zero, after the publisher this week filed a European trademark for Fantasy Earth Genesis.
According to the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the studio has applied for a trademark for the title in Nice classes nine and 41. These cover a broad range of goods and services, but most significantly, video game software and online video games.
Fantasy Earth: Zero originally launched in Japan back in 2006, and is still played to by a significant number of users to this day. It received a North American localisation in 2010, but remained online in the country for less than a year.
The title is a third-person action RPG, with a heavy emphasis on player-versus-player on a large scale; dubbed ‘kingdom-versus-kingdom’. Fantasy Earth: Zero originally launched with a subscription model, before Square Enix transferred the publishing rights to GamePot, who turned it into a free-to-play game.
