Square Enix has submitted several trademarks in Europe. The first is "HD-2D" and the second is "HD2D". The term "HD-2D" is used by developers and publishers to describe the graphic aesthetics displayed in the Switch 2018 release, Octopath travelers.
As noted by Siliconera, recent trademarks of these terms do not necessarily mean the new Octopath game is in process. It could be something similar, using the same visual style.
Saying this, last September, Square Enix producer Tomoya Asano said the talks had begun about the Octopath sequel. Earlier this month, Default Brave The Twitter account also confirms that new games are being developed but do not provide further details. Can all of this be attributed to the trademarks mentioned above?
