Square Enix filed a trademark recently that fans are hoping will bring back the beloved PlayStation series. Parasite Eve. The action role-playing horror video games have not seen a new entry since 2011, but that hasn’t stopped fans (including us) from keeping fingers crossed for a new game. There are rumors that our prayers may be answered. So what’s this trademark for? Something called “Symbiogenesis.”
Parasite Eve fans believe that Parasite Eve is coming back
As pointed out by Gematsu, Symbiogenesis is described as “the merging of two separate organisms to form a single new organism.” This concept formed the basis of 1995 novel Parasite Eve, which was later turned into a series of video games for PlayStation platforms by none other than Square Enix. This theory could be a bit of a stretch but the series’ cult following refuses to let go. Square Enix filed a trademark application for Parasite Eve in 2018. However, nothing happened.
Parasite Eve II was released in 1999, and the first game in this series was launched on the original PlayStation. The 3rd Birthday was the last installment in the series and it was released on PSP in 2010.
What the chances of Parasite Eve’s revival are is anybody’s guess.
