Plus other trademarks from Namco Bandai and Konami.

The latest set of Japanese trademarks come from Namco Bandai, Konami, and Square Enix. There aren’t many of interest, except for one from Square Enix. The publisher trademarked Final Fantasy Agito. Final Fantasy Agito XIII was the original name of the Japan-only PSP game Final Fantasy Type-0. The name was changed in January 2011, so it’s interesting that they’re trademarking it again after all this time.

Find the full list of trademarks below.

Namco Bandai

  • Unlimited World (2013-28857) – The subtitle to the One Piece: Unlimited World series.
  • Bravoman (2013-29490) – A comical action platform game released by Namco Bandai in 1988.
  • Super-Unequaled Hero of Excellence! (2013-29491) – The subtitle to Bravoman: Super-Unequaled Hero of Excellence!, an animated TV series coming in 2013.


  • Living Manager (2013-30852) – The subtitle to Professional Baseball Spirits: Living Manager.

Square Enix

  • Monster Parade (2013-30907)
  • Saikyou Guardian Cross (2013-30910) – Literally Strongest Guardian Cross. Likely a new version of Square Enix’s mobile game Guardian Cross.
  • Military Tune (2013-30917) – Music-related.
  • Final Fantasy Agito (2013-30930)

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

      Actually, Type-0 did start life off as a cell phone game, so this might actually be true. Crossing my fingers that it’s not though.

  • sherimae1324

    final fantasy type-1, now for vita ^_^
    dont dissapoint SE! or maybe that is always you do :p

    • Azoz

      First Localize it SE PLZ
      I just played the JP demo and it was awesome.

  • shogunknight

    PLEASE! be a vita game, a localisation would be good too

    It’s Happening!


  • DesmaX

    What? They didn’t trademark Final Fantasy Agito Before?

  • MrRobbyM

    PS3 hd remaster or Vita port. Or..not.

  • bloodiOS

    But is it going to be for Android or iOS?

  • Raiyu

    Considering its from SE Japan…I wouldn’t get my hopes up. :(

    • jujubee88

      Please be Agito-cited!

    Square Enix’s TM of Agito is very suspicious. It could be as simple as securing the base to intent on making it a franchise. However I thought the intent was clear when they went to trademark the Type 0-whatever number they stopped at. Either way, it’s too soon to be “excited”.

  • new_tradition

    The odds of FF Agito being a HD port of the PSP FF Type-0 game (and thus the only likely possibility for localization) are..?

    Curious that they’ve retaken the Agito name, even if it was for the purpose of keeping others from making money off the name. If anything, the only off thing is that Japan trademarked the name now. The whole name change was done in preparation to make Type-0 into a series. Maybe they no longer want to continue that path?

    Or its just a meager DLC update, or any overly cautious SE employee, I dunno xD

  • dior

    Not sure what to think but it’s T0 news so I’ll keep my eye on it..

  • Nitraion

    I seen gameplay footage once so this gameplay short of plays like Versus XIII “gameplay footage” right?
    It will be sweet to see HD port or Vita

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owltron

    I’m just going to say I’m going to wait for details in the future. I really don’t want to jump the gun that quick.

    Besides, Agito could be an Iphone/and or Android title. We’ll see.

      If it is, that would be pretty ironic when it was suppose to be in the first place but they changed it into a PSP game and gave it higher production values. If it is for the iphone and and android, it won’t be the same game.

    Frankly I’m surprised that anybody still cares about this. (This does not mean that I am not grateful to the newswriter)

    A PS Vita version might be a lot smarter anyway, the load times were attrocious. after 5 minutes of playtime 10 – 20 seconds loading and between every area …loading again. (Believe me one area is not big at all)

    The story was kinda okay, though I am still confused by the fact that the main reason was “not forgetting something”. *sigh* oh well… we’ll see, I root for those who are still interested in the game. Since I’m the same with Project Diva. xD

  • SaveTheDay

    Please be excited !

  • Nice Boat

    Praise be to Yevon.

  • http://twitter.com/Alos88 Alos88

    A Vita version of Type Zero? If so, I hope we get it this time.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    If it actually does happen, then I couldn’t be more glad.

    Must’ve been one of the first things SE decided after Yoichi Wada left.

  • Anon-non

    They could be trademarking the Agito franchise, which I think can stand on it’s own. It’s really incredible.

  • Elvick

    Please be something positive…

    • Nice Boat

      It’s a social game that uses illustrations from Typ—*shot*

  • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

    One of the stupidest things Square Enix has done is not give us Type-0.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Probably just bring this up again so they can re-release an HD version for PS3. It doesn’t take an expert to figure out that would sell a lot of copies, lol.

  • Blaz

    It could also be for a Manga or Anime since they also sponsor both of them

  • Skerj

    I believe the real news is that there is going to be a new Bravoman. Son, that game on TG-16 was beast. Also if you messed around too long in a stage, a giant robot head would emerge from the sky and &@*# your $*!* up hard. I also want a new Keith Courage.

    Also. ..totally buying this.

  • AdachiTohru

    Finally on PS Vita !

  • PrinceHeir

    Vita please!

  • bloodiOS

    Sony really should release an 8GB Vita game card, otherwise how is it going to be possible for the game to fit into that limited 4GB of storage space? The game has a lot of pre-rendered cutscenes, which plays a major part in making it the first and only PSP title to span across 2 UMDs. That’s almost 4GB there, people and those video were only rendered at 480×272. Now imagine have all of those cutscenes rendered again at 960×544 (400% increase in pixels), how much space would that take? It might be possible if the Vita was to support 10-bit encodes, but it doesn’t…

    If this game is ever released on the Vita, it’ll be another swapping chore, and folks who look forward to getting the digital version of the game might as well be prepared to spend another $30 buck an 8GB memory card.

    Really, it is best to have this remastered and released exclusively on the PS3. Folks love gaming on move, I know. But this really isn’t the best title for that.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    on siliconera:SE will make console-like games for smarphones and Tablets
    on gematsu: SE trademarks FF Agito
    Well if this happen the game is just going to be released on the “original” plataform that was wanted to be

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Wonderful news! <3
