Seems like with the launch of Nintendo Switch getting closer Nintendo is gearing up its efforts to bring as many interesting games as possible to the console. According to the United States patent and trademark office(via Dualshockers), Nintendo has re-filed their trademark application for Eternal Darkness.
While it might not seem like much but interestingly Nintendo has decided to renew the trademark for Eternal Darkness just two weeks before the Nintendo Switch presentation where we are expecting the company to reveal the launch line-up for the upcoming console.
Eternal Darkness was a critically acclaimed game released in 2002 for Nintendo GameCube. However, the company lost the trademark because they failed to file the necessary forms. Since February 2010 Nintendo has filed applications to reclaim the trademark.
Back in 2012 rumors emerged that Canada-based developer Silicon Knights is working on the sequel to the game. However, since then no solid proof has been seen of the game’s existence.
Given the timing of Nintendo reclaiming the trademark, it seems that the company might be planning to reboot or develop a sequel for the upcoming Nintendo Switch and we might see the announcement of the game at the upcoming event.
Also, this is not going to be the first game that will see a sequel or reboot on Nintendo Switch as Beyond Good And Evil 2 is also being developed for the upcoming console. However, a new rumor is making rounds on the internet that Beyond Good And Evil 2 is going to be a timed exclusive for the console.
According to the report, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is going to be a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch and will be available for a year exclusively on the Switch before it releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
