So, it appears Final Fantasy Type-0 may be bigger than a single game. In addition to the enigmatic trademark and we discovered, Square Enix also filed three related trademarks. In Europe, Square Enix registered Type-1, Type-2, and Type-3.
Yes, those are Japanese numerals, but not common kanji. Square Enix wrote 1, 2, and 3 in daiji or formal numbers often used for contracts and other legal documents. While Square Enix registered a domain name for Final Fantasy Type-0, they didn’t do the same for Final Fantasy Type-1. This suggests these trademarks are, perhaps, protective trademarks, just in case Square Enix decides to release Final Fantasy Type-1 in the future.
But, what is Final Fantasy Type-0? With all of these trademarks it seems like something we’ll see at next week’s Production 1 press event.
