Nintendo has filed a new trademark with the USPTO. On April 2, the company picked up “Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace”.

That’s a pretty interesting name, to say the least. I wonder what it could be about…

  • Nocturne

    oh crap metroid the early days inmcoming

  • Oscar Filho

    Something like XCom and Advance Wars whould be amazing, but I whould love any other genre, I love aliens.

  • Adrian Brown

    That’s the name of their new console arriving in 2018, the alien menace is Sony and MS lol

  • R.D. Covenant

    Wonderful 102?

  • KH

    I guess it could be related to Retro’s new project. Specially after there hiring of some AI and UI architects, along some grotesque monster and alien designers.

    Could also be Miyamoto’s new IP, but that would probably turn out to be Nintendo’s NFC game.

    • 3dchile

      grotesque monster and alien designers for metroid, not for this game. most probably =p

  • Operative

    Oh wow, this actually seems important. A potential new IP from them would really shake things up

    • Volfos

      Pikmin didn’t for the Gamecube, it just gave us a new masterpiece.

  • luigi?

    lol, this sounds like a new ip to me, in particular an eshop type game. Other than that I immediately thought of the Metroid attraction from Nintendo Land..

      Oh man, I would love it if that attraction’s gameplay became a full game.

      • Volfos

        It and Donkey Kong’s game are things I’d buy for 15 euro each on eShop.

  • D2K

    Hopefully one of MANY new IPs Nintendo needs to announce in June.

    • TalesOfBS

      I seriously don’t care about this new ip stuff. Just want the good games out, especially from Nintendo’s old unused franchises like Pokemon Stadium and Star Fox.

      • Kaetsu

        I love your name.

        • TalesOfBS

          lol The first time i used it it wasn’t even a nick yet and i ended up being banned from a forum.

  • TalesOfBS

    Name is too long, probably just another 3DS platform game.

  • uPadWatcher

    And I thought the name belongs to Gabe Newell… but I digress.

  • SecretX

    well miyamoto did say he was working on something new this has to be it
    and we all know wiiu needs a games.

    • Mr. Foogy

      I doubt this is that though.

      • Volfos

        He did say he wanted to work on an FPS, and the name of this sounds like a cartoony parody of every FPS since the original Halo. – Just screams of him in my opinion.

  • Melatelo

    PLEASE OH PLEASE BE A NEW IP!!!

  • wii u is awsome

    cartoonish fps or conduit 3

  • wii u is awsome

    CALL OF MARIO

    world at bowser

    CALL OF LINK

    black ganon 2

    CALL OF SAMUS

    ridley

  • Rowdy

    It sounds like an FPS to me. If it is, I hope it is something similar to Jet Force Gemini (in first person, of course) or Timesplitters :)

  • 504HotBoy

    It could possibly be StarFox. Fox McCloud has a strike team. It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s StarFox being developed by Retro Studios or Platinum Games.

    • Volfos

      Starfox Team: Exo-Alien Menace.
