Square Enix recently filed a trademark application Parasite Eva in Europe, suggesting that the classical action of the RPG franchise could be restored.
To submit a trademark, Square Enix must prove that it intends to use the said trademark, so we should see something Parasite Eva connected in the future. What we'll see from who knows.
For those who do not know: Parasite Eva is a series that debuted in 1998 through Square Enix and through the original PlayStation. Continuation of the novel with the same name written by Hikiaki Senna caused two consecutive activities.
Parasite Eva was precisely the first mature nominal game for the company, as well as the first major US and Japanese game development cooperation for the company as well.
The series began right after the revival of the Japanese horror, partly inspired by the above-mentioned book. In addition to the game adaptation, there was also a film adaptation and two manga comics.
Extension, Parasite Eve II followed a year later in 1999 on the same platform. Then in 2010, the third game in the series, called The third birthday, released via PSP. Since 2010, however, the series is inactive, but this new trademark suggests that it can change soon.
Parasite Eva is far from the largest IP Square Square Enix, but there is quite a fairly large cult, which, as you would expect, is quite excited about the prospect of a return. And, of course, fans also have their own theories about what this brand can mean.
In the worst case, Europe can get a Parasite Eve port finally, at best this may be either a "zero" remake, a restart series or a sequel. In any case, this is potentially incredible news

It would be cool to see another game for Parasite Eve … I wonder if it would be a PE 3 game or a continuation of the 3rd birthday? Anyway, Aya would look perfect at 46 years. pic.twitter.com/4W5QRk2YyH

If it's a PS4 restorer like FF 7 and 9, then this will explain why we do not get the Parasite Eve on PlayStation Classic like Japan.

Honestly excited, whatever the outcome (remake, remaster, new game)
