    I’m not believing anything I hear until tomorrow.

      We don’t do April Fools’ jokes. We compile the ones other sites do, however, into a single post. Considering the link here is to the official US trademark site, there’s no reason not to believe Sony didn’t file a trademark. Plus, it’s a trademark for something completely unknown. That would be a terrible joke.

        On that topic, just what in the world happened to Square Enix’s anniversary site? Did they just silently pull it?

        • xMCXx

          April Fool’s! Haha!

          • Bloodios

            Which must be the lamest one ever, surely? I thought the site was supposed to build up a bunch of hopes and expectations before crashing it all with the following announcement where the true April Fools joke is presented. I supposed that once again, I expected way too much from Square XD

              But like, it wasn’t even funny or something amazing or anything. If was just like ‘Yeah, it’s been 10 years since we merged, we hope we can make you happy.’ Do you not want to make consumers happy, Square?! Is that your evil joke?!

              I’ve updated that post.

              • Bloodios

                That must be it, Sal! That must be the hidden message right there XD
                Edit: Perhaps you’ll also like to update the post’s subtitles to read:
                “Square Enix thinking of things to make you UNHAPPY.”

    Sony had a couple sweet RPGs in the past, would be nice to see a new one as long as it’s not about dragons and open worlds.

    Another Monster Hunter clone? v_v

    • Alos88

      What are you basing that on, is there any information other than the trademark currently?

      • http://typemoonshrine.wordpress.com/ InsaneChronos

        I’m just guessing.

      Should be awesome, Capcom don’t give a fuck to gain a lot of money, porting the Monster Hunter series for PS3/Vita and I don’t want to buy 3DS only for this game

      Not a problem, if they are not as bad as MH( a PSO clone in fact) and as good as God Eater 2 or Soul Sacrifice ( and maybe toukiden )

      God forbid a genre have more than one series in it!

  • PrinceHeir

  • Duc PC-QB

    I dont give a damn as long as its a jrpg

    • Warboss Aohd

      pretty much ‘ow i feel.

  • new_tradition

    Destiny of Spirits…Maybe you play as a ghost and aim for either going to the afterlife or getting reincarnated depending on actions throughout the game?

  • http://twitter.com/Sieghardt Sieghardt

    Sounds like a subtitle to an Arc the Lad game. Seems unlikely but that’s the first thing it made me think of

    • Elvick

      Is that a Sony owned IP?

      • http://twitter.com/Sieghardt Sieghardt

        It is, yeah

  • Kefkiroth

    “electronic game software for handheld electronic devices”
    So at least we know it’s going to be on Vita (could possibly go to PSP or PS3 too)… I wonder why SCEA instead of Japan, though.

  • Solomon_Kano

    That sounds so much like an RPG subtitle that I almost wanted to say this is for a new DQ or something, until I reread the title of the article.

    Well, Sony just recently brought back that one PS1 RPG on PSP, maybe they want to do another RPG? Hopefully it’ll be for PS4.

    Now watch this be an action game. Which… I wouldn’t mind, but still.

    Maybe it’s RPG from Guerrilla??
    I really hope Sony hires Yasumi Matsuno and give him a team in SCEJ and make epic RPG!

    • Marco Tinè

      Best idea ever (^_^)-b

    I wonder if this is the game thtat Sony signed on an exclusive game with the company… Can’t remember the name but the conpany logo is a red egg….
