Nintendo Trademarks Virtual Boy And Polarium In Europe

Nintendo has registered a couple of new trademarks in Europe. The trademarks are related to Nintendo’s ill-fated Virtual Boy and also Nintendo DS title, Polarium. Hopefully this means that we may see Virtual Boy games on the Virtual Console, but it could be that Nintendo is simply protecting their trademarks. Hopefully we will find out soon.

Thanks, Michelle

New Dragon Quest Western Names Trademarked

Square Enix has registered a couple of trademarks which concern the immensely popular Dragon Quest series. The western trademarks are Luminaries of the Legendary Line and The Seeds of Salvation. It should be noted that all Dragon Quest games were revealed through trademarks first, so this is positive news. Could the Luminaries of the Legendary Line and The Seeds of Salvation trademarks be used for Dragon Quest X, Dragon Quest VII’s Nintendo 3DS remake, or Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D?
