The USPTO has responded to Nintendo’s request to extend the Eternal Darkness trademark with a “Statement of Use” or Extension Request. What does this mean? It could mean that Nintendo has 36 months (three years) to make something involving the name “Eternal Darkness”. If Nintendo chooses not to release some kind of product, they could *potentially* lose their trademark request.

What do you make out of this rumor? Should Nintendo release an HD remake of the original Eternal Darkness? Perhaps release a quick port on the eShop?  Would a Club Nintendo reward be enough? Could they get around this by putting an Eternal Darkness trophy in the next Smash Bros? Chime in with your comments below.
