New Eternal Darkness Trademark?

Silicon Knights’ psychological horror game Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem was one of the bright spots in the GameCube library, so Nintendo’s new refiling of the Eternal Darkness trademark warrants at least a modicum of excitement. Or does it?

Nintendo of America re-upped the trademark earlier this week, after canceling the previous mark in December, leaving Eternal Darkness for dead in U.S. Patent and Trademark Office terms. Does that mean we should expect a new game in the Eternal Darkness property? Maybe, maybe not.

Nintendo recently re-upped another GameCube era title, Luigi’s Mansion, meaning that it may have interest in bringing more games to the New Play Control series for the Wii. If Nintendo doesn’t see the value in retrofitting Wii motion controls onto that particular GameCube game, perhaps it has something else in the works. We certainly wouldn’t turn down a new horror offering for the Wii.

The registration may be nothing more than lingering sanity effects, with Nintendo, Silicon Knights and the United States government messing with our heads. Nintendo has a media summit planned for next week. Perhaps we’ll find some sanity there.

As much as everyone would love a sequel, its probably just going to be a re-release. Still will be nice for people who missed out the first time.

  1. I almost hope that this ISN’T a sequel. As much as I’d love to see one, I’m afraid that it would somehow tarnish the original, or greatest game of all time. Honestly and besides Metroid Prime Trilogy, this would be the ONLY “New Play Control” game I would purchase.
