Nintendo has filed to renew the trademark for the Eternal Darkness series. The news comes from a Neogaf user who wrote the following...
On December 20, 2016, Nintendo of America Inc. filed in the US via the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) a trademark application for "Eternal Darkness". The filing basis is 1B (Application based on intent to use), goods and services are related to game programs/software. The application entered the Trademark Reporting and Monitoring System (TRAM) yesterday on December 23, 2016.
While it could be possible that a new game for the series could be in development, Silicon Knights (the development team that partnered with Nintendo for the game) has disbanded. What many people are thinking, including myself, is that the game will likely see a re-release on the virtual console when the Nintendo Switch launches. Considering that numerous rumors regarding Gamecube games appearing on the Switch, it seems this is the more likely scenario.
I would love to see a new Eternal Darkness game, although the gameplay has become a little dated. Do you think there is a way the series could modernize but still maintain the core elements of what made it so entertaining?
