NeoGAF has dug up another Square Enix trademark, this one for something called Sleeping Dogs, leading some to speculate it’s a subtitle for Kane & Lynch 3 due to the subtitle of the last outing, Dog Days. A job posting from IO Interactive back in September 2011 suggested that a third Kane & Lynch was in the works, and Ian Livingstone himself said in December 2010 the duo weren’t going away any time soon. You can view the trademark filing here, which lists a January 13 date.

Square has trademarked something called Final Fantasy Dimensions in the US and Europe. Dug up by a NeoGAF user, the trademark was filed on January 16, and the domain FinalFantasyDimensions.com has been registered as well. Theories on the trademark range from a Vita title in the works from 1st Production Department, to a game already released in Japan but getting a name change in the west. Thanks, Gematsu.

Siliconera has unearthed – and translated – two Japanese trademarks made by Square Enix. The first is the short and sweet Root of the Underworld, while the other runs on a bit as Door of the Underworld and the Path of Nayuta. Square Enix has indicated it intends to flesh out its portfolio of franchise properties, with a couple of new titles already in the works.

Square Enix has filed a trademark in Japan for a title called Gunslinger Stratus. A search through the USPTO found no trace of it, but that doesn’t mean anything just yet. The trademark, dug up by Andriasang, doesn’t really state much, but we’re betting it’s one of the “two to three” new IPs the firm said it’s working on. Last week, the firm listed recruitment ads for a new action RPG for PS3 and Vita, as well as another action-RPG in development, which featured teaser artwork. We’ll send a mail, but we don’t expect Square to give up any secrets just yet.

Capcom Japan has filed a trademark for a game called E.X. Troopers in the US and Europe. Spotted by Siliconera, its sounds to us like a shooter where you will play a trooper of some sort. We have no creative thought as to what the initials E.X. would stand for, though. Maybe extreme? Extreme Troopers? If that’s the case, maybe it’s mechs. Who knows. As usual, we’ll send a mail. Thanks, Joystiq.

Siliconera spotted a pair of mysterious new trademark filings from Square Enix Japan, both for logos with no descriptive text. No, we have no idea what they’re for; presumably the publisher doesn’t want us to, or there’d be some words on it. Enjoy in full-sized, low-res glory through the break.

“We don’t comment on rumors or speculation. That (the trademark) can apply to anything. We’ve got comic books and other things we’re doing. We’re definitely working on an expansion but we’re not talking about any details yet.” – World of Warcraft lead designer Tom Chilton to Kotaku regarding the firm’s Mists of Pandaria trademark filing.

Microsoft has filed a trademark with the USPTO for Iron Brigade, and the description says only that it is “computer software” and that it was filed on July 26. The site Fusible, which dug the application up, suggests it could be in reference to a Union army unit from the Civil War, the 150th anniversary of which is this year. We’ll just have to wait and see, we suppose. Thanks, Joystiq.

According to a US trademark application dug up by Siliconera, it looks as though Harmonix is working on something called Vidrhythm along with Dance Central 2. Earlier this year, the firm stated it was looking into 3DS, Vita, and Facebook development, so it is quite possible that whatever Vidrhythm is, it could possibly land on, well, just about anything really. We’ll send a mail.
