There have been rumors about a Seaman revival of some sort for awhile now. Seaman creator Yoot Saito hinted that he was working on something and Japanese publication Nikkei once reported Nintendo was helping reviving franchises, specifically pointing to Seaman.
Two trademarks suggest that the Seaman revival may actually be around the corner.
Nintendo recently registered for Mysterious Pet: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face and Mysterious Partner: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face in Japan.
There aren’t too many games with Human-faced fish out there so… perhaps these are for Seaman or a spiritual successor? Yoot Saito worked directly with Nintendo on Odama and most recently developed Aero Porter, the game with the Internet’s favorite Level-5’s character.
Thanks for the tip, Liam. We’re glad to talk with you anytime—just plug in a microphone and tap on the Siliconera tank.
