Every time we ponder a currently unannounced Square Enix release, we end up being disappointed. It's usually some silly mobile game or something.

But their titles are so very compelling, so sometimes we can't help but wonder… For example, Siliconera has spotted a recent trademark filed by the publisher; it's for a game called "Soul Suspect" or perhaps "Murdered: Soul Suspect."

That sounds a lot like a mystery thriller of some sort, maybe even along the same lines as L.A. Noire . Maybe we'd get to play a detective of some sort, who is tasked with not only solving a murder, but must also locate a lost soul. The possibilities are limitless and Square Enix could get awfully creative with this one, provided this isn't just another action game for the 3DS or something like that. Murder mysteries are common in the world of books but the concept hasn't gotten as much traction in the world of interactive entertainment, so color us intrigued. Well, for now.

Although I haven't seen this title yet, SE's been sending me a bunch of new games videos, and almost all of them are either for the 3DS, or phone games.

So, now at least I know where they've been wasting the majority of their non-Lightening time….

I'm guessing that it's going to be another ridiculous social game, though it's an interesting name. I get the feeling that it may have something to do with a new tease from the guy that first unveiled PS All Stars, which he claims is a collaboration between S-E and Studio EX, a South Korean developer who specialises in mobile and online games. Then again, he claims that the initials of that game are K.H.O. Hmm… Different title? Tentative title? Me being completely off-base? All of these are more than probable.

Who really knows what they're doing? They say one thing and do the opposite

sounds more like a dungeon RPG like dark souls.
id be interesting to see them do a murder mystery though, maybe this is what eidos montreal will be working on now that deus ex has jumped ship?
come to think of it they would be the perfect team for the job!
hope a new deus ex comes out soon though, im really starting to miss it already!
lucky i got it free through plus.

It would be awesome if the game was styled like Fatal Frame and built to use with the MOVE controller.
