A Square Enix The trademark suggests that Parasite Eve could soon be making a triumphant return. Could it finally be happening?
Remakes have been taking off a lot lately. In particular, following the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake in 2019. Since then, publishers have been itching to repeat Capcom’s success.
We’d love to see the return of Parasite Eve!
However, rumors of Parasite Eve’s return were circulating in 2021. The original Parasite Eve was released for the first PlayStation in 1998. This RPG combined elements of both classic Resident Evil and Final Fantasy.
Also, despite earning a respectable 81/100 on Metacritic, Parasite Eve hasn’t been Square Enix’s most critically acclaimed game. Nonetheless, gathering cult status, fans have been clamoring for a remake for many years.
In fact, we at GameByte have also called for Parasite Eve to be remade, starring in our “Great RPGs that deserve a modern remake” Y “Is PlayStation looking for the wrong games to remake?” Related Posts.
However, if you take into account a recent trademark, the highly requested new version (or remaster) of Parasite Eve could have taken its biggest step towards becoming a reality.
As reported by Gematsu, on October 13theSquare Enix filed a trademark for “Symbiogenesis” which was later made public over the weekend.
What could this Square Enix branding mean for Parasite Eve?
according to a wiki input, the definition of symbiogenesis is: “the fusion of two separate organisms to form a single new organism.This definition was the basis for the novel Parasite Eve which was released in 1995 before being adapted into a video game by Square Enix in 1998.
If Parasite Eve returns, it will surely be a welcome addition by fans. Not just for those who enjoyed the original PS1 game, but new fans as well. Unlike its sequel, the original Parasite Eve was never released in Europe or any other region outside of Japan or North America.
So whether it’s a remake or a remaster of the PS1 classic, it could mean even more fans will get to see what all the fuss is about by experiencing Parasite Eve for the first time.
