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.

Apparently my sanity meter has gone way down...I have read that Nintendo extended the Eternal Darkness trademark! It must be an insanity manifestation1
if they do make eternal darkness 2 im hoping they make it even scarier then the first one which gave alot of gamers everywhere nightmares for weeks
Never heard of Eteranl Darkness before, but if Silicon Knights is involved with this, that can't spell good fortune for it. . .
I think Nintendo are more likely to get a new developer instead of allowing Silicon Knights to develop the next Eternal Darkness, since they have developed a major disappointment that took long amount of years in development called Too Human and another crappy video game called X-Men: Destiny.
I never did finish Eternal Darkness, guess I should do that.
This is far and away one of my most favorite games of the previous generation and I have been hoping against hope that they would make another one but I'm not holding my breath.
HD remake? Please?
