Square Enix registers domain names for 'All the Bravest'

Product: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy
Publisher: Square Enix
Many fans of Square Enix's turn-based roleplaying games have wondered if Bravely Default Flying Fairy would make its way to the west.
Following its Japanese release this fall, Square Enix succinctly announced that it had "no plans" to localize the game for Europe or North America, yet recent domain name registrations and a trademark filing may indicate that the company is changing its position on the matter.
Joystiq reports that Square Enix has registered two domain names (allthebravest.com and allthebravest.net) along with a trademark for "All the Bravest" filed in Europe.
While both URLs are currently empty, the name is strikingly similar to Bravely Default Flying Fairy leading to speculation that a localization may be underway.
Meanwhile, across the Atlantic
For Square Enix's faithful in America, however, the picture is a bit less rosy. There is no registration for either "All the Bravest" or "Bravely Default Flying Fairy" in the US Patent and Trademark records.
Additionally, there are no listings for "All the Bravest" or "Bravely Default Flying Fairy" on the ESRB or PEGI video game rating websites - so if a localization is in the works, it is likely in the very early stages.
