Engage Kill Trademarked by Square Enix & Shu by Capcom - Predictions

Square Enix registered Engage Kill, probably the subtitle of a new game, while Capcom registered Shu, probably in relation to Monster Hunter

December 6, 2021

We’re on Monday, and it’s already been a few hours since clocks hit past midnight in Japan, so trademark bots have been updated, and this December 6, 2021, it’s been most notably revealed that Square Enix trademarked “Engage Kill“. Meanwhile, Capcom trademarked 狩 “Shu”.

Every Mondays, trademark bots are updated with everything that was registered in Japan. It’s pretty easy to check even if you don’t speak Japanese as I do. Anyone can do it, as long as you don’t forget about it as I do.

Square Enix registers Engage Kill, predictions

Square Enix registered Engage Kill on November 18, and it was made public on December 6. The trademark was filed under all the categories used for games. It could be a new project, a new IP, the possibilities are endless.

It’s also important to note that a trademark doesn’t necessarily something called Engage Kill is in development. And even if it is, there’s no guarantee it’ll get announced. Many projects never end up getting publicly announced before they’re canceled or refurbished into something else.

Moreover, “Engage Kill” could be the subtitle for a new game in an existing IP or series. Like Final Fantasy. Square Enix still never officially revealed the name of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, and we only call it “Part 2” for SEO sake.

Anything trademarked by Square recently and these next few months could potentially be related to Final Fantasy VII Remake part 2, like being the game’s subtitle. So it’s always fun to look at trademarks. I really doubt we’re getting Final Fantasy VII Remake Engage Kill though. If it’s a subtitle, it’ll probably be used for something else.

Meanwhile, Capcom trademarked 狩 which means “hunting” so it’s very likely related to Monster Hunter. The trademark was filed on November 24. Maybe it’s something related to Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak which is scheduled to launch in Summer 2022. On Switch and Steam.
