Anyone who was fan of the mind-bending GameCube horror title Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, may find this next bit news exciting. Another crafty sleuth from the NeoGAF forums has uncovered a trademark filing, this time it’s an extension filed by Nintendo for the Eternal Darkness trademark.
Does this mean Nintendo has a sequel (which survival horror fans have waited nearly 11 years for) in development? While this is certainly within the realm of possibility (although a new development team would be needed to step in), it seems more likely that Nintendo is merely protecting its property rights. However, I will say it does provide a nice ray of hope…or a lingering sense of doom and despair brought about by insanity for fans of the original. One or the other.
Wait, now that I think about, a new Eternal Darkness could be a great game to draw in the hardcore audience Nintendo is desperately hoping to draw in for the Wii U. Just a thought.
Fear the Blue Screen of Death!
