It looks like Gex could be making a comeback soon as Square Enix filed a new trademark for the platformer in Japan (Thanks, @renka_schedule)! The Gex trademark was initially filed on February 7th and made public a few weeks later. This is the second trademark with the previous being filed last year in Europe. For now, fans who want to see a return of the green icon have to wait and see if Square Enix has any plans in store.
In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
