Nintendo files new trademark for Eternal Darkness in the U.S.

Posted on December 24, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in GameCube, General Nintendo, News

On Tuesday, Nintendo filed a new trademark application for Eternal Darkness in the United States. It was then officially published yesterday.

This actually isn’t the first time we’ve seen a trademark pertaining to Eternal Darkness. The filing we heard about a few years ago is still in place, though only until the end of the year. When that happens, Nintendo will need to provide a Statement of Use if the company doesn’t want the application will be abandoned. There are also slight differences between the new and old Eternal Darkness trademarks.

You never quite know what you’ll get with these trademarks. This one had a 1B filing, meaning it’s an application based on intent to use. That doesn’t mean Eternal Darkness is getting a sequel though. Nintendo could be looking to protect the name, or could be interested in something like a Virtual Console release.

    • Logan Wayman

      Oooh! An Eternal Darkness Haunted House! How would that work?

      • MagcargoMan

        Knowing Nintendo, a haunted house attraction would be Luigi’s Mansion-themed.

    • Justin McQuillen

      Dude! I would not go on that ride!

  • Blanco8x8

    Gamecube VC on Switch?

  • Sinara Centeno

    I hope it’s a remake or ED 2. F#[email protected] the Virtual Console

  • Saxo2712

    I read somewhere long ago that the patent on ED also prevents the use of the wild insanity effects trademark of the game.

    So was this series actually good or do people just give it attention because ”GAMECUBE”?

    • Vinicius

      It was a pretty good game. The music, VA, and sound effects were amazing, and the story is one that really tries to be a good cosmic horror story (different from most Lovecraftian games where the plot is basically Chtulu this and Chtullu that). And seeing the story from different points of view really made it interesting.
      While the gameplay didn’t age that well, still one amazing game.

      • Tlink7

        Ahh nice, hope Nintendo does something new with the franchise then… I love me some horror ^^

    • udickridesony

      NO, is not a good game….. is a FANTASTIC game!!!

    • It’s a really legit game. My husband introduced it to me because we found a copy. . . at a used game store or something? It was crazy to play, and we haven’t even finished it (he had, but I haven’t).

      Not only is it very unique and rather innovative (especially for a horror game), it is incredibly well-done and put together. It’s pretty great.

    • Justin McQuillen

      It’s amazing dude. It’s a hardcore game, sort of out of place. It’s the kind of dark game you’d expect more to be on PC, but better since Nintendo was involved. It does drag on for an hour or so at the beginning but it picks up and things escalate very quickly if you’re an experienced gamer. There is some similarity to dark souls style gameplay where you might get wrecked as soon as you walk into a room, and the incredibly well done sanity system will make sure you have a feeling of legitimate anxiety. This is the only game that will have you thinking you are losing your sanity in real life.

      Personally I think it has quite a bit of “GAMECUBE” effect.
      The game had really good ideas but the systems weren’t very well balanced and heavily abusable, and you actually had to refrain yourself from “healing” to see the cool stuff.
      The lovecraftian world was really cool though.

  • Vinicius

    I really hope one day we get a sequel.
    This is one of the few games where I care about the story.

  • Jacob Groves

    Maybe remastered, remake or GameCube VC for Switch.

  • Wasn’t there a. . . sequel or spiritual successor recently, for a KickStarter or similar project? I remember it being the original writer or director, but I know there were issues going on, and I don’t remember what ended up happening.

    But hey, if Nintendo can get something going in a more official capacity and replicate the game’s system and innovations, that would be incredible.

    • Vinicius

      Yep,it was called Shadow of Eternals. It was being developed by everyone that was still related to Sillicon Knights at that point (but using another company name because of legal reasons), but it never went anywhere because after they parted ways with Nintendo the company became really untrustworthy.

      • Ahhh, that’s what it all was. Okay, thanks! I was loosely following it for a minute, but then stopped and mostly forgot. Interesting.

  • MagcargoMan

    Probably a Gamecube VC title.

  • Annie

    YES! I love this game <3
