Square Enix’s ‘secret title’ might be Star Galaxy

Trademark and countdown site evidence discovered.

December 7, 2012 / 07:13 PM EDT / (@salromano)

Square Enix is teasing a secret title to be revealed on December 12. Given the countdown site‘s space-set design, we figured it’s pointing towards a new Star Ocean. But a trademark filed by Square Enix last month, alongside new evidence discovered on the countdown site, suggests otherwise. 

In November, Square Enix filed a trademark in Japan for something called “Star Galaxy.” On the countdown site, the word “Star” can be seen in the upper right. Today, the word “Divide” was added. If we play with the image extensions for “Star” and “Divide,” we can find that an image for “Galaxy” exists, as well.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

    And Star Galaxy is WHAT exactly…?

  • http://www.facebook.com/wtfits.gardner Cat Flames

    SO a massive Star Ocean world, a Galaxy is way bigger than an Ocean.. seems legit.

  • Souji Tendou

    Star Ocean Mobage, or social game. :p
    Don’t hype over this guys, the announcement might gonna let you down, like what they did with TWEWY.

  • MosquitoLemon

    I’m still waiting for an explanation of why the names of two Gundam games are on that teaser site.

  • PrinceHeir

    can’t wait!!!!!

  • disqus_sJb2iM56IR

    it could be a new ip like rouge galaxy or like star ocean but chances for that are extremly low like 0.0001 :P

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    New word appeared today: “War.”

    If you guys wanna play around and see if you can guess what other words are going to appear (they seem pretty general), you can play around by changing the word “war” in the URL below till ya get something.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

      It’s like a bunch of words you would expect them to write on a bulletin board or something.

      Square-Enix – These are the keys to the game!
      Fans – Ummmm…. okay?

      Starting to make me think it’s a mobile game though. I hope I’m wrong.

    Web research: The Bandiera Brothers were Italian revolutionaries who led a revolt against Austrian rule in Italy.

  • MosquitoLemon

    Bandiera? More like BANDAI ERA.

  • InsaneChronos

    There is “universe accel cosmic drive universe accel cosmic drive” line on the Twitter frame.

    • MosquitoLemon

      Yeah, those are Gundam games. Any thoughts?

      • InsaneChronos

    • LordKaiser

      I do hope it’s not.. Regardless it will be known tomorrow morning. There’s still a little space for another word below “AND YOU” .

  • LordKaiser

    Less than 3 and half hour left. Prepare to Jump of hapiness or fall to dissapointment. Ready yourselves!

    It hits 00 00 00 and nothing happens

  • LordKaiser

    Less than 1 hour left. Be ready and brace yourselves.

  • LordKaiser

    I waited for nothing. It’s just a Browser game….

  • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

    Looks like it’s some kind of web browser game. Star Galaxy is the name.

    I think it’s powered by Yahoo Japan, which I’m pretty sure means only those in Japan can play. At the bottom it lists tested OS and browser names, XP, Vista, and Win 7. The browsers are IE, Firefox, and Chrome.

    Seems they are recruiting for a beta test. If you click the link it goes to Yahoo Japan. Google TL says it is a “simulation strategy game.”

    We were all right to be skeptical, this is a disappointment as expected.

    BROWSER GAME!!!!!! >.> f%$#@ SE.
