Only a few weeks in the past, it got here to mild that Sq. Enix had trademarked a really fascinating phrase in Japan. The phrase was Symbiogenesis, and is one which any fan of Parasite Eve will likely be very acquainted with, contemplating the phrase underpins the contents of the 1995 horror sport.
After all, Parasite Eve followers started to get excited that an announcement of a remake, and even some type of spin-off, was to come back. For individuals who did get their hopes up, I can solely say that my coronary heart goes out to you, due to course, Sq. Enix didn’t give followers what they needed. That mentioned, followers will likely be seeing the likes of Ways Ogre: Reborn on November 11, which is one thing, I suppose.
Reasonably than asserting a brand new sport or remake, Sq. Enix has as an alternative gone on to disclose that the trademarked phrase, Symbiogenesis, is in truth a brand new franchise for the corporate. A brand new franchise that describes itself as a “World NFT Collectible Artwork Mission” from Sq. Enix.
As a brand new franchise, it appears fairly unlikely that this NFT reveal is just the start of a Parasite Eve revival. In actual fact, it appears to be separate completely, which does convey up the query as to why Sq. Enix would use the title Symbiogenesis?
It definitely should really feel like a kick within the tooth to be a Parasite Eve fan proper now. I can’t think about if Konami’s revival of Silent Hill turned out to simply be some NFT challenge; I’d frankly be beside myself.
On the entire, it merely sucks to see Sq. Enix – writer behind a few of the greatest video games of all time – fall into the realm of blockchain and NFT’s, reasonably than simply make the video games gamers are dying for.
