Nintendo has once again extended its trademark for the game Eternal Darkness, which was originally developed by Silicon Knights in 2002. This is the fifth time since the mid-2000s that the trademark for the popular psychological survival horror game has been re-registered by Nintendo. Despite being faced with mounting financial issues and a lawsuit from Epic Games last year, developer Silicon Knights was believed to have been developing a sequel to Eternal Darkness. The project has since been believed to have been cancelled.
With the trademark for Eternal Darkness renewed for a staggering fifth time, does this open the door for Nintendo to take a crack at a sequel, even without Silicon Knights’ input? If so, which of Nintendo’s first-party developers (or outside ones) would like to develop it? Tell us in the comments below.
