So, that trademark that Square Enix filed for the title Rebellion Overdrive? Turns out it’s actually a new episode of the social game Knights of the Crystals.
Rebellion Overdrive is, at this time, only confirmed for Japan. It seems fairly doubtful that it’ll make its way to the English-speaking world, as well; Square Enix has recently announced that Knights of the Crystals, which is available on Facebook, is meeting its end on February 29, 2012. Of course, there’s always a chance that demand can bring it back in the future.
It’s vaguely disappointing that Rebellion Overdrive is not a new IP, but at least we know what it is. And knowing is half the battle. We always have Sleeping Dogs to look forward to.
