Recent reports have confirmed that Square Enix has not only a registered trademark in Europe for Rise of Mana, but also in Japan, for use with video games and computer software.

Earlier this year, Square Enix also re-registered the series name for the Mana franchise, Seiken Densetsu. A protective trademark was filed for Drag-On Dragoon in Japan in January of this year, which eventually led to the announcement of Drag-On Dragoon 3 for the Playstation 3.
