Is Square Enix’s next big game called Stormblood?

I love a good mystery. There’s nothing I like more than cosying up in front of the fire with a good Agatha Christie on the TV, though even the best selling murder sleuth would have her work cut out trying to work out the significance of the latest trademark filed by Square Enix.

According to eagle eyed NeoGAF posters, Square Enix has filed a trademark for an as-of-yet-unannounced game called “Stormblood”. Well, we’re all assuming it’s a new game. To be frank, it could be absolutely anything.

The trademark itself was filed on August 30, though as far as I can see, the publisher currently has no projects in the pipeline bearing the Stormblood name, nor any updates or even DLC.

That all means we have absolutely no idea what Stormblood is, whether it’s for console or PC, or even if it’ll ever see the light of day. However, when it comes to a publisher as prolific as Square Enix, it’s a development that shouldn’t be ignored.

Though not traditionally a PC powerhouse, Square Enix has enjoyed more success on the platform in recent years thanks to its acquisition of western-facing publisher Eidos. Stormblood, however, sounds like it smacks of a Japanese release, which means it may not be PC bound, whatever it turns out to be. Either way, we’ll be keeping an eye on it.
