We’ve already heard that Nintendo has filed trademarks for Quality of Life in Japan and Europe, but now the company has filed three for QOL in the United States. Nintendo has yet to disclose what form their Quality of Life project will take, but hopefully all will be revealed in the coming months.
A recent trademark listing shows that Square Enix is busy developing a Prequel Trilogy for one of its beloved franchises.

Nintendo has registered the Quality of Life trademark in Europe today. Quality of Life is Nintendo’s next project, separate from their traditional video game consoles.

You may remember that back in April Nintendo registered a trademark titled Code Name S.T.E.A.M: Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace in the United States. Well it now turns out that the Kyoto based company has registered the same trademark in Japan. There was originally quite a bit of speculation regarding the title with some believing that could be a sequel to The Wonderful 101. With E3 coming up next month, we shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out exactly what S.T.E.A.M is.
A NeoGAF member has discovered that Nintendo has registered a number of “Advance” trademarks in Japan. These include “Advance”, “Advance Series”, “Advance Touch”, and “Advance Push”. All of these were registered by Nintendo on April 4th.
Nintendo has filed a new trademark in the US with an intriguing code name. On April 2, the gaming giant trademarked code name S.T.E.A.M: Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace.

Equally, we could be looking at an eShop game, though this one didn’t need to be green-lit. Let us know what your thoughts are on the new trademark in the comment section below.
The internet sleuths over at Siliconera have noticed that Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures Inc, have filed a trademark for something called Phantom Gate. The trademark was filed in late December 2013. The trademark belongs to the aforementioned companies listed above so it sounds as though it could be Pokemon related. The publication says it could be linked to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.
