New Trademark Prompts Thought Of Eternal Darkness For Wii

imageNintendo was on a Gamecube Wii-make spree last year with their slate of New Play Control games. Things have since slowed down, but maybe Eternal Darkness will get a second chance on the market.

 

If you missed it, Eternal Darkness was a survival horror game from Silicon Knights that covered Ancient Rome to present day. When Alexandra read the Eternal Darkness book she relived the life of others that picked up the book. Eternal Darkness’ most memorable feature was the sanity system, which made blood drip from the screen and broke the fourth wall by pretending to delete your save file.

 

The rights to the term Eternal Darkness lapsed, but Nintendo re-registered the game’s name in North America on February 10, 2010. This may be Nintendo simply protecting the term or perhaps Eternal Darkness is about to make a comeback either in sequel form or as a New Play Control Wii-make.
