The lights are on
If this trademark extension is any indication, Nintendo has not abandoned the Eternal Darkness franchise just yet.
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem was an innovative GameCube horror title from Silicon Knights that messed with players' heads in ways that Hideo Kojima could admire. Silicon Knights has seen some problems lately. It was forced to destroy all of its games that were built using the Unreal Engine, and pay millions of dollars in damages to Epic Games after a drawn out lawsuit. Silicon Knights' current fate is unclear, but it is unlikely that it is working on a new Eternal Darkness.
This trademark extension could mean Nintendo and a new developer are working on a new Eternal Darkness title, or it could just be Nintendo keeping its paperwork in line, so to speak.

OH. MY. GOD. YES.
I think a new Eternal Darkness for WiiU would be great. They could do all sorts of freaky things with the controller.
We can hope.
This is awesome to hear!
Retro, maybe? Idk, two things - this awesome game and an awesome studio that could be up to anything. Exciting.
i think it would be wise for nintendo to push for new games of there old cult IPs to push out wiiu units. Even make new games to really really old games like startroupes.
If they did get a new developer I hope they dont turn it into a crapy game that has no senecs beging called a horror game. I dont want this game to die out hope its good if they do
