Square Enix is making a lot of pretty cool moves. Between rumors of a possible release of Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS5 and trademark registrations linked to FF7, the company has registered a most curious patent. He has designed a mobile game system based on interaction between people and adapted to the role-playing genre, something ideal for a possible mobile Final Fantasy with social overtones.
Square Enix’s social role-playing technology
The company has moved to the USPTO with this registration. As explained in the linked documents, the idea is to develop different mechanics for role-playing games. The images show character menus with actions such as attacking or defending themselves, as well as the use of spells. However, the interesting thing comes in the connections between users. There would be “Masters” who could teach skills or spells to their “Students.”
Each character could have different forms of training, increasing levels until they can reach the rank of master. Something very interesting, because it would serve, for example, to establish teams with a leader who could not only give orders and organize, but also share knowledge with other players so that they can outline certain skills for combat or any other task in the game. It should be noted that, in the images on these lines, a menu appears that talks about missions, team organization and mastery.
Curious details that point to a mobile game, although for now Square Enix has not made any announcements. We’ll have to wait to see where it all goes, although the premise is promising. Will it be related to Final Fantasy XVI or will it be for a spinoff?
