Square Enix registers ‘Wizardlings’ domains for yet to be announced game

Wizardlings

Wizardlings.com and Wizardlings.net are two of the domain names that Square Enix registered this week through the brand protection agency Corporation Service Company.

But the company didn’t stop there.

According to Whois records, Square also registered TheWizardlings.com (Whois), TheWizardlings.net (Whois) and Wizardlings.co.uk (Whois).

Most of the domains were registered on August 7, the same day the company announced losses of 2.077 billion yen ($27 million) in the fiscal quarter ending June 30. According to Joystiq, sales of console games were weak in the quarter, but sales of portable games were more positive.

Square Enix has not made any announcement about a Wizardlings game.

In the fantasy world, a “wizardling” refers to a young wizard.

Oddly enough, Square Enix opted not to register the non-plural version Wizardling.com.  And given the track record of stories in the past on this site that mentioned an available domain, it’s not likely it will be available much longer.

Square Enix also filed a community trademark (trade mark no. 011106473) in the European Union.  The filing covers computer games software, printed matter and entertainment services.

At the time of this story being published, the domain names resolve to a blank web page.

The trademark was filed in Europe, so not sure it's certain that Square USA is responsible.  It could be the London Studios.
