Square Enix trademarks SE Masterpieces across Europe

Sunday, 15th May 2011 23:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Fans of cut-price gaming rejoice! A trademark filing suggests Square Enix may have a new line of budget classics on the way.

Dug up by super NeoGAFer Miladesn, the SE Masterpieces trademark was filed in London and covers both physical releases and digitally distributed titles.

The trademark has been linked to a recent Squeenix financial report, in which the Japanese publisher makes mention of an intention to finally dust off its back catalogue. Fingers crossed for some console network and mobile ports of SNES, PSOne and PS2 era titles.

In Japan, Square Enix has releases a Kingdom Hearts collection under the label “master pieces”, so it’s clearly fond of the word. Phrase. Whatever.

Thanks, RPGSite.

    Does Sony still own any stock in Squenix?

    I think it’d be an interesting move for Sony or Microsoft to obtain an entire publisher, although I’d think Nintendo could benefit the most from this action, having their own hardcore exclusives is just what Nintendo could use next gen.

    Sony already has enough AAA developers but Microsoft could use a few new studios for AAA development for their next console.

    I personally think that Take Two would be the best publisher for any manufacturer to acquire, not that I would want that to happen but Take Two does have the AAA talent with Rockstar, not to mention their own sporting developers but it’s more likely that ActiVision would buy them out since they do have that kind of money & IMO, need to spread their wings if they want to continue competing.

    @BloodyJoe, why you need HD for them?

    It’s the same like asking to put direct X11 to Final fantasy 1.

    @Jack, yes, maybe 1-3% LOL
