Square Enix Trademarks Emberstoria, SaGa Emerald Beyond

On October 13, 2022, Square Enix filed trademarks for “Emberstoria” and “SaGa Emerald Beyond.” The news only became public in late October 2022. In April 2022, Square Enix trademarked “Emberstoria Overwrite,” though it is unclear if they are two separate properties. In May 2022, Square Enix registered emberstoria.net and emberstoria.com as domains as well. [Thanks, Gematsu!]

It is currently unclear what Emberstoria or Emberstoria Overwrite are. They do not appear to be part of any existing franchises or series under Square Enix’s belt. So these two trademarks may have to do with a new IP. As Square Enix started trademarking Emberstoria in April, it may not be until 2023 that we see anything concrete from this. Square Enix has also trademarked Emberstoria Overwrite in Australia.

As for “SaGa Emerald Beyond,” it may be a new project within the SaGa series. These JRPGs first came out in 1989 with The Final Fantasy Legend. The word “SaGa” started appearing in the titles from Romancing SaGa, which came out for the Super Famicom in 1992. The last console game was SaGa: Scarlet Grace, which came out in 2016 for the PlayStation Vita, so “Emerald Beyond” might be a new non-mobile title. Square Enix has also filed for a “SaGa Emerald Beyond” trademark in Europe and Australia.

More information on Square Enix’s new projects will appear in the future. It has also recently trademarked “Symbiogenesis,” which may have something to do with Parasite Eve.
