Cult-classic Nintendo Gamecube title Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem seems to still be in the mind of Nintendo as the company recently extended its trademark for the game.
The trademark was submitted back in December, but an eagle-eyed NeoGAF user was able to spot the trademark extension this past week. This doesn’t necessarily mean a sequel is in the works, but considering Nintendo will be remaking The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for the Wii U, it could mean an HD remake is being planned for the game. Or, it could mean the same thing it meant the last time Nintendo extended its trademark for the game: absolutely nothing.
Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem was one of my most favorite games of the last console’s generation. For it being an original IP developed by Silicon Knights, it left such a huge impact on me that I continually hope and dream a sequel would one day be released. Maybe Nintendo will one day realize what exactly they had with Eternal Darkness and give fans the sequel, or at least the remake, they’ve been wanting for over ten years now.
