Nintendo registered a series of “Advance” trademarks in Japan last month. “Advance”, “Advance Series”, “Advance Touch”, and “Advance Push” were all filed for on April 4.

Trademarks can be a tricky case, as they’re not always used. It’ll be interesting to see if any of these names resurface in the future.
