Nintendo Registers Trademark for Downloadable Eternal Darkness

Posted on July 29, 2013 AT 10:35am

While Precursor Games struggles to crowdfund Shadow of the Eternals—the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness—Nintendo last week re-registered their trademark on Eternal Darkness proper.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office’s description of the trademark, which was filed July 23 by Nintendo of America, is for “downloadable electronic game software,” suggesting—at least, to me—that the 2002 survival horror title for GameCube might be released digitally through the Wii U Virtual Console. Of course, this could just be a preemptive move on Nintendo’s part in response to Dyack and Precusor’s Shadow of the Eternals activity.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem has never saw rerelease outside of its 2002 debut on the GameCube. Fans shave been clamoring for a follow up to the cult hit for years now.
