Eternal Darkness

Nintendo has one again trademarked its GameCube survival horror game Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. The cult classic was a huge critical success back in the early days of the 6th console generation, and fans are still looking for more from the series.

Not to get hopes up too high for a sequel though, Nintendo’s trademark application includes “downloadable electronic game programs” and “downloadable electronic game software,” most likely indicating a desire to sell the game as a downloadable title in the future.

Nintendo has yet to confirm GameCube releases for Virtual Console, and Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-aime has only hinted at the idea. Could this be an early sign of things to come?

Those looking for a new Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem would do best to check out Shadow of the Eternals on Kickstarter, which launched for a second time last week. The same team is behind its development, and it is being hyped the game as a spiritual successor.
