This info was found by Fusible.com:
“It would appear that Square Enix is working on something game-related called “All The Bravest”.
Both domain names were registered through the trademark and domain management company Thomson Brandy on November 29, 2012.
Also on the same day, Square Enix filed a trademark application (trade mark no 011386349). The goods and services in the filing cover:

So it appears that this is all related to a game called All the Bravest. Sounds suspiciously similar to Bravely Default, the hit 3DS RPG, which released to critical acclaim in Japan. Could a Western localization be on its way? I’m thinking this will lead to a resounding yes. Just a gut call, but it seems quite logical.
