Nintendo Files A TON of Trademarks Before E3

Choo Choo, All Aboard The Nintendo Hype Train!

Hot on our coverage on the Star Fox Grand Prix leak yesterday, Nintendo filed a boatload of exciting trademarks.

The list includes:

According to Japanese Nintendo’s coverage, the purposes of the trademarks include for “home video program, smartphone program, as well as non-gaming related purposes (merchandising, etc).”

This lines up pretty well with what we reported on yesterday, although Nintendo could just be re-upping on their franchises copyright status. It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen any of the Wii-specific titles, and Link’s Crossbow Training is a puzzling inclusion. That being said, it would be the perfect time to release a sequel alongside a Nintendo Labo deadly weapons pack. Perhaps they could do something similar with Nintendogs, and release a Build-Your-Own-Pup Pack, complete with 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper doggie bags.


But the most exciting of these are arguably F-Zero and Sin & Punishment. F-Zero’s last appearance was a short stint in Nintendoland. Sin & Punishment’s last release, Star Successor, was in 2009 (2019 in North America!). The Switch would be a pretty perfect platform for both of those games, and fans have been itching for a new, full blown F-Zero since 2004.

Which of these trademarks are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below! Personally, I’ve always found Sin & Punishment to be a really intriguing series, but never gotten the chance to spend as much time with it as I’d like.
