What Is Square Enix’s “President’s Day”?

By Ishaan . March 12, 2013 . 11:00am

Square Enix Europe have filed a trademark for something titled “President’s Day” in Europe, Siliconera has discovered.


What could this be for? We’re guessing it’s a subtitle for an Eidos game. In the U.S., “Presidents’ Day” is a alternate term referring to former president George Washington’s birthday. Whether or not it’s being used in the same context here is unknown.


(Maybe it’s for Legacy of Kain: President’s Day, a reboot of the series where Kain and Raziel stand for election as president of Nozgoth.)


Other trademarks Square Enix Europe have filed in Europe lately include Hitman: International Contract Agency and Hitman: ICA. Meanwhile, Square Enix Japan filed a trademark for Guns & Souls.

    A JRPG with George Washington and Lincoln as main characters. ATB style battle system. Imagine it.

          • Aoshi00

            Lincoln the Vampire Hunter was a very good movie :) I actually liked it better than Lincoln, lol..

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            Hey! Lincon isn’t a bad film :P

          • Aoshi00

            No, I liked both Lincoln movies and am a big Daniel Day Lewis fan, just that Vampire Hunter was more emotional and exciting and Lincoln was talk talk talk :). I actually didn’t expect it to be that great but it blew my mind. Too bad it didn’t seem to do that well in the box office, lucky I was able to catch it in the theater before it was gone after a short 2-week run.

        • They can even have Assassin’s Creed DLC, just like in FFXIII-2. Evil George Washington from AC3 to be released as downloadable character!

        • Kchorrex

          Good idea, he gets laid a lot in his quest :3

      • Detrimont

        Dissidia 013 is the first dissidia game, as the numbers represent the cylces of the world in dissidia. And since the last cycle took place in the first game(cycle 13) and duodecim was cycle 12, it would have to be 001 – 011

  • Go2hell66

    not a jrpg

    • TheExile285

      SE still makes JRPGs?

      • Farid Belkacemi

        Dragon Quest VII/X/Bravely Default want to speak with you ;)

  • Brimfyre

    iOS card game where all the Presidents are re imagined as Moe girls.

    • TheExile285


      its sad that this might actually be true…

    • dont we have that already?

      [edit: ok nvm…i was thinking of a hentai game lol]

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        My Girlfriend Is The President? XD

      • Kchorrex

        Or perhaps you were thinking of that illustration book with world dictators rendered as ero-moe girls.

        • I remember something like that exist but I never thought of it. Juan Andrés Valencia is correct lol

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            Those were some of the best and worst 35 bucks I’ve ever spent. That game just reeks of Japan.

  • DesmaX

    lol at the products AD’s on this news

  • Solomon_Kano

    It’s the long-awaited sequel to Ergheiz. The tagline’s gonna be “In God We Trust”.

    44 presidential combatants with the ability to call in the VPs for support. Cecil and Kain will be secret characters as a tease for Final Fantasy 4 Ultra Complete Master Edition coming out next year, in 2014.

    • Locklear93

      I actually liked Ehrgeiz… <_< Actually, it might be the last Square game I liked at all.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I honestly never bothered to try it. It always looked like an off-brand Tekken to my younger self lol.

  • Its actually Versus rebranding.Noctis is a fine president not a prince now.

  • Just Cause 3?

    • This is actually quite possible.

  • Isaac Newton

    that is all

  • Locklear93

    I love how “My Girlfriend is the President” shows in the ads here, rather than the article with the long discussion of VNs and dating sims. <_< Oh, keyword targeting, you never cease to amuse me.

  • Steven Heryanto

    Final Fantasy VII EC with Rufus as main character

    • Firekitty

      I would forgive SE everything they’ve ever done to hurt me if they made a game staring Rufus.

    • Göran Isacson

      I would accept this. I would accept this very much.

  • Joke answer: A new fighting game for the upcoming PS4 using the Luminous Engine where the two factions: Republicans and Democrats fight it out – (Max) Anarchy (Reigns) style!

    • Firekitty

      That would be awesome, but impossible, because there’d be no way to balance it. All the republicans would have guns, while the democrats would just sit there whining about how violence is wrong.

      • LULZ, Oh god that had me rollin. xD

      • brian

        One could claim that the republicans would be gun loco, and the democrats would be defaultly the bravest.
        It would have 13 playable characters in versus mode, and story mode would be about a fight for the heart of all worlds.
        It’d be nierly perfect.

  • Riian

    It’s a trademark for yet another Kingdom Hearts story before KH3. Master Xehanort takes over Obama’s heart and its up to Sora and co. to stop him.

  • LynxAmali

    -(Maybe it’s for Legacy of Kain: President’s Day, a reboot of the series where Kain and Raziel stand for election as president of Nozgoth.)

    I hate you. I really hate you.
    Did I mention how much I really, really, really hate you?


  • Hollowkoopa

    I’m not going to lie. If they actually make a game where you battle all 44 US presidents in Anarchy Reigns style. I would totally buy it.

  • Interface23

    Kane and Lynch?

  • final fantasy 13-4: presidents day.

  • fireemblembeast

    A fighting game with all of the presidents?! I’d totally buy that, especially because I hate so many of them. I’d play as Obama, Clinton, Washington (good old no political parties), Kennedy, or Carter and beat up all the stupid presidents, like Truman, Bush, and FDR. Don’t even get me started.
    Do it SE DO IT!

  • s07195

    Goodness help us if ‘President’s Day’ is an EDUCATIONAL GAME.

  • Levin_Scorpius

    It is a dating sim. Anything less then wooing bishounen anime Presidents wouldn’t be as amusingly terrible.

    • Göran Isacson

      Theodore Roosevelt is the macho but dependable bad boy. Bill Clinton and JFK as smooth ladies men who compete for who can woo the most hearts, Benjamin Franklin the hot older teacher, Andrew Jackson as the thug with a heart of gold and a head full of crazy, Washington as the wise, cool and detached pretty boy and Obama as the wide-eyed, naive and supergenki borderline shota choice.

      This game would be both terrible and aweinspiring.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    A Sarah Palin game for the next gen supporting DX11 features like tessellation, global illumination, cloth simulation and PhysX where you try to hide from the press and insult the democrats. DISCUSS

  • Keyanf

    They are publishing a Metal Wolf Chaos sequel obviously.
