Square Enix Shells Out For Samurai Eleven Trademark

By Spencer . July 12, 2010 . 11:58pm


Square Enix might be dusting off Musashi. The publisher registered the rights to Samurai Eleven for use with video games in Japan. The Musashi series started with Brave Fencer Musashi on the PsOne, went dormant for awhile, and then Samurai Legend Musashi came out in 2005. Musashi: Samurai Eleven has a nice ring to it, but Samurai Eleven could work as a standalone title too.


In addition to Samurai Eleven, we found trademarks for Wheel of Fortune (two of those, actually) and strangely enough “Victory”. The victory trademark is mostly likely related to Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory, a Wii game which makes its debut this week. Still amusing to note because victory is a common word, which Square Enix now has the rights to in Japan. It’s like how Edge Games owns the word “edge” in North America, without any pending lawsuits.

    Oh u remind me, I want next Musashi game

    • It better be decent, unlike that abomination Musashi Samurai Legend

    Bad idea. Samurai Eleven is too close to Samurai 7. I thought this was a game related to the Samurai 7 anime series initially. What, nobody thought of 7-Eleven?

    • You are forgetting it has the name Musashi at the beginning, this already makes the game cool >8D

    • Or Akira Kurosawa’s epic Seven Samurai and Hiroshi Inagaki’s Samurai Trilogy.

  • Great!, i loved the last game, i hope the next one will be better >8D (and bigger)

    It’d be cool i they once again switched around the game’s universe.

    Like if every entry in the series has a different incarnation and take on Musashi and his world.

    I want a sequel more like Brave Fencer, and less like Samurai Legend. :)
    I hope this is true.

    Samurai Eleven? Sounds more like a game about Japanese soccer.
