Square Enix trademarks Circle of Mana

Wizardlings, Ultima Box, Agent 47 also trademarked.

Square Enix has filed four new trademarks in Japan.

The first mark, “Wizardlings,” is likely a new game from Square Enix’s North American branch. The next, “Ultima Box,” is probably related to its Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Ultimate Box. The third, “Agent 47,” is the main character of Hitman: Absolution.

Finally, there’s a registration for “Circle of Mana,” which has the potential to be the next game in Square Enix’s long-running Mana RPG series, following the most recent release, 2007’s Heroes of Mana, for DS.

Thanks, FF-Reunion.

  • Will keep my expectation low.
    Circle of Mana will probably be a ios/android mobile game.
    But of course I loved to be wrong.

  • I really hope this doesn’t turn out to be a mobile game.

    Consoles or 3DS/Vita please!

  • whiteferrero

    please be a good mana game. the last good one was legend of mana, and before that – secret of mana. really this series is a hit or miss.

    • FaithlessMr

       And Seiken Densetsu 3 before Legend of Mana :3

  • アキラ

    Not getting my hopes up, it’s most likely a mobile game, like others have said. 

  • …………..

  • Zuhri69

    This will be a mobile or social game. Tis no the first time SE break our hearts like this.

    • Nekmex

      Exactly, people most realize that SE is focusing on iOS and Android games because of the profit 

  • Kurai Warrior

    They have like 8 arcade/mobile games alone at TGS. What’s one more? 

  • Learii

    let me  guess 3DS?

  • its more likely for 3DS

  • Hope for Vita 

  • Duc PC-QB

    3DS for sure.

    Oh wait, maybe they’ll fool us again with iOS ver

  • FaithlessMr

    Oh shi-!

    I really want this to be for the 3DS or consoles or whatever, but I’m pretty sure they’re gonna do with Mana the same thing they did with SaGa, and turn it into a social game :/

    Heck, even the title “Circle” can relate to “Circle of friends” or something like that, that beckons social gaming. I’m not even getting my hopes up.

    If anything, this reminds me how great the Mana franchise used to be. Heck, Seiken Densetsu 3 is one of the SNES’s best!


  • I really hope this amounts to something – I love the Mana games, even the more divisive ones, and I’d love to see the series continue! I

  • Nice!!!!! Vita-3DS please >.<!!!

  • Ace

    Maybe Circle of Mana is a port to the iOS… =P 

  • How about an improved version of say Dawn of Mana?

    …No?…just me?

    alright then. :/

  • LordKaiser

    Legend of Mana was the last Mana  game I enjoyed. I hope they can release something worthy of playing.
