imageSquare Enix filed a trademark for The Mad & The Monstrous in Europe, which isn’t tied to any announced game so far. Siliconera also found a domain name registration for


Right now the site doesn’t go anywhere, but it was registered to Square Enix Japan unlike say which is tied to Square Enix Europe. Perhaps, this is an upcoming game from Square Enix’s Japan division? One remote possibility is a localization of Monster X Dragon a long running and quite successful browser based game with a few guest monsters from the Final Fantasy series.

    GREE game?

  • I’m still waiting for Terry’s Wonderland…

  • Give me a Dragon Quest 8 HD or better yet Remake.

    • Solomon_Kano

      DQ8 holds up so well that a remake would be unnecessarily expensive. DQ8 HD would be enough.

    • Armane

      They’ll probably port it to the Vi… Dammit. I doubt we’ll see a DQ8 remake any time soon, if at all. Although the idea of playing DQ8 without having to worry about skill caps is pretty appealing (although I’m guessing they’d just add the class system instead of expanding the skills).

      I wonder if they’d go back to the original Japanese release or use the International as the template though. The more I play DQIX, the more I realise I hate battle animations in RPGs.

    *I shouldn’t… I-I mean, it’s getting overused…*
    *no… NO… I MUSTN’T….*

    …Final Fantasy XIII-4: The Mad and the Monstrous?

  • Monster X Dragon has GILGAMESH in it so I’d give it a go. The name is interesting I’ll give it that but I’ll need to see it first.

  • EmptyStar

    Thanks for getting my hopes up.

    Stop using pictures of the game unless they announce it.

    • Hinataharem

      Seriously. That was just cruel. :(

  • KiTA

    Could this be an ad theme for Terry’s Wonderland?

  • Ace

    My guess: a new mobile game that’s only going to be released in Japan.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Rocket Slime: Mad the monstrous?^_^

  • CirnoLakes

    Sounds suspiciously similar to “All The Bravest”.
