Nintendo Trademarks “QOL” In Japan For A Number Of Products

Nintendo has finally trademarked QOL for their upcoming Quality Of Life platform in Japan. The trademarks cover a number of things including portable gaming devices, stand alone gaming devices, to clothes, to merchandise, and beauty products. Interestingly both Apple and Google are reportedly both looking to get into the health and fitness market which should give Nintendo some fierce competition.

Thanks, Ken

        1. I love you guys now look at this ;)

          Here’s why it’s important:

          Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!

    1. It won’t. They made it very clear that the main focus is on games and this is just a new project, using new people. All the same resources they always had are atill going into games.

      1. Yeah I hope Nintendo continues to be about games, but money speaks louder than words. If the QoL product makes them more money than the Wii U they might consider getting rid of traditional Nintendo consoles. Remember Nintendo also said that the gameboy line would continue when the DS came out.

    2. Forget about that dude!!!!! Nintendo don’t care about games anymore!!!! ALL THEY WANT is to cater babies!!!! With baby consoles, kiddy games!!!!! Its a oneway trip!!!! NITENDO will never be what it was in the past!!!!!!111

    1. Isn’t that Microsoft’s plan with unified accounts on every single product and website they own, alongside with Kinect turned on and connected to the internet all the time?

      1. I guess Nintendo is series about this, they should partner with Microsoft and GE to take it to the next level. They should also create a new 50$ fit meter that well have more power, color e-ink screen, touch, and pack it with sensors, then make a companion app for phones and tablets.

        24 hour fitness would also be a good partner

    2. HHAHAHAHA!!!!! NINTENDO is going nowhere with this stupid MOVE!!!! IWATA, please resign!!!!! REGGIE resign!!!!!! NINTENDO needs a reboot…..!!!!

      1. And what the hell are these “violators” are gonna do? Send death threat notes or pornographic content? Sorry but Swapnote was removed months ago so there’s no other way to do something stupid to others on 3DS besides voice chat enabled games?

    1. HAHAHHA! BRAVELY DEFAULT another shovelware crapware catered by nintendo to nintebabies!!!!!!


      1. The game Is basically Final Fantasy with a new name. You are implying that every gaming console caters to kids and babies. Ok then.

        1. …..I’m not implying EVERY console caters to infants!!!! IM STATING THAT NINTENDO caters to babies and newborns!!!!!!


      2. Uhm… Nintendo had nothing to do with this game’s development. It was Square Enix & Silicon Studio that developed the game. Nintendo simply published it for the North American & PAL regions. Kids today.

    1. You ignorance is amusing because our Kingdom will mimic what your empire does and make it 1000xs better

      1. Nintendo Commander Leviathan

        By my analysis our dearest enemy, you are in no position to speak since you’ve only sold your assets instead of building newer ones due to losing money and debt and junk credit rating.

        1. And this is the same company whom bought your precious eDRAM factory whose constantly bringing great games and making an impact

          1. Nintendo Commander Leviathan

            That is true, but that only gives me the thought of your empire wasting even more of your money, nor does it establish any significance due to the fact that the contract that the factory made with our empire is still in effect and unaffected by the purchase of your empire beforehand. Failure chance of your empire is at 97.6%.

            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis


              The factory we left behind is nothing more than a wasteland for the Sonyans to waste even more resources…

              I calculate a 67.4% chance that they will lose about 20.6% of their total amount of resources during the next 2 cycles…

          2. WAHT? SHUT UP!!!! we have nintendo commander, now sony commander…. you’re not commanding anything!!!!!

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis


                Let’s set our differences aside for a few seconds and destroy this infedel!

                  1. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! ALL of you have bipolar problems!!!!!!!

                    This is what we got when NINTENDO cater babies!!!!

                    1. Nintendo Commander this guy has to be one of the biggest loser in your faction not only he hates nintendo but he hates everyone….

          1. Hm not a regular here good sir but I’m thinking of registering now….
            Your army is relentless and rude which makes me more intregued in being here…..

            I have to oversee our rivals and convert as many nintendronesas possible

              1. We gave Donkey Kong life on our system when u were a mere 3rd party… creating primitive box top versions of ur rehashed sports games… Our Empire grew into a World Power and then we withered into paupers. Yet we will raise again with the Atari Quality of Reality apps we havent developed or marketed but yea we are getting there.

                1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                  Ahahahahhahahahaha a lonely forgotten Atarian Commander…

                  How “nice” of you to visit our empire which saved the countless innocent civilians from your evil grasp!

                  You empire is barely worth 3 million dollars ahahahahahahah…

                    1. iNFINEXUS... sovereign diety of PC

                      A ha ha puny consoles… with each passing day ur core architecture becames more obsolete as my multi dimensional universe engulfs urs. Asemulating each language, each and every line of code into our infinate NEBULA storage system. Resistence is futile… We are iNFINEXUS…

                    2. Expensive PC parts upgrade for every two years...Destoryer of PCs

                      But you are in no position to speak because I make it hard for you to reach any further. I am…
                      YOUR BANE…


            *flips monkey wrench*

            I’ll fix ya up real quick, *opens you’re voice box…*

            Ahhh…well I don’t have this part in my shop just yet…Oh wait, yes I do. Its gonna take a bit though…*starts taking out the voice box*

            *sawing noises, hammer noises, power drill noises, tink tink tink*

            There we go, all set man. I made sure its still on the same voice settings and if you got problems, just let me know. ^.^

            1. This a good game!!!!! RAREWARE the best devloper ever!!!! HAHAHA, nintendo was envy of RARE!!!! BEcause NINTENDO caters kids, and RARE used to cater real gamers!!!!!!!!

              1. I choke on the dicks of elephants. This one time I sucked one so hard that I sucked it off and the dick got lodged into my skull forcing my brain out.

                  1. WHAT???? WTF……?????? I was talking about donkey kong country released for SNES, developed by RARE and published by NINTENDO! IN the day and age NINTENDO was really a real company….!!!!!… . NOT ToDAYS NINntendo, which caters only to newborns and kids!!!!!!

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          Indeed, that’s the irony…

          If they don’t copy us, they die…

          Ipso facto, we own their very lives!

  1. QOL …

    The only thing nintendo has are the popular franchises … Mario, Zelda etc … everything else, someone else does it better.

    so why don’t they focus on what they’re best at? … they’re best at Mario, Zelda etc … not QOL.

    1. Because most likely they’re expanding their marketing. For example, they probably realized that the Wii U is never going to do as well as the original Wii, so they’re broadening their approach. Going for a “Jack of all trades” media sense rather than focusing just on gaming. And technically it could work

    2. companies invest into many things so its very common. this might also push nintendo to have a different department for non gaming stuff. The company will always have a role in cards, toys, and games so its nothing bad

      1. well gee … i guess if Ferrari wanted to expand their market they should listen to you guys … we’d have Ferrari making bicycles to expand the market.

        or, perhaps Ferrari should have a subsidiary company, if they wanted to make bicycles so they don’t confused their main brand.

        their main brand is mario and zelda etc … which has nothing … NOTHING … to do with QOL. mario and zelda is about sitting around and being lazy.

        i feel like everyone’s crazy … or it’s just me … or everyone is out to drive me crazy.

        1. Oh, so everyone should listen you and not expand, that’s why Ferrari is making tons of money and totally owning Kia, right? $7B vs $22B(Kia) The cheap crap car no-one wanted a decade ago is now worth 3 times more.
          QoL is different from their “core” games. Or are you seriously thinking that Nintendo will make their mainline Mario and Zelda games into health and fitness genre games? Nintendo has Wii Sports, Fit, Brain Ag, etc. that fits the QoL idea.
          We don’t know what QoL will be. But what we do know is that they are EXPANDING, not replacing.

  2. Further proof that nintendo’s out of its mind and directionless under iwata. The mans a damned fool.

    Who in their right mind sees the videogaming landscape as ‘too crowded to compete in’ while they continue to sit on game IP consumers are asking for, and then decides to enter the health and fitness landscape that they know absolutely nothing about.

    All of you pretending this idea is anything but terrible are f’ing morons. All this is going to do is make sure wiiu gets less than we’re already expecting.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      That hasn’t stopped the Xbots or Sonyans now has it?…

      The only difference is that unlike them, we will rise while they’ll fall into their own mess…

    2. EXACTLY … like you took the words out of my head and added poetry to them.

      they have lazy IPs … that’s it, that’s all … why QOL? … is this QOL going to feed my family? … will it take care of me if i lose my job? … if you want a QOL, you stop playing games. friggin idiots!!!

    3. You mean the health and fitness market that they revolutionize back in 2005-2006 and others have copied them since? Yup, they know nothing about that. But why should you care?
      If QoL, whatever it will be, is not your thing, then move on. Ninty will still make games and consoles, if you want something else, there’s a lot of other choices: Mobile/Sony/Ms.

  3. I don’t get why some you guys are so fearful of Nintendo expanding their product lines. Do you guys own stocks in competing companies or something?

    If they said they were downsizing or replacing their gaming lines, then fine, I’d understand from a gamer’s point of view. But they’ve already said they’ll continue making games and there aren’t any real indication of how QoL will have a negatively impact game output.

    In fact, Nintendo has actually been expanding a bit, hiring new staff, new building, and plans to improve R&D efficiency. So, why the hate?

    1. agreed on your point. people dont get that nintendo should actually have done this long ago… i mean after the wii, they have money to try new things. to expand and become more then just a gaming company.

    2. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      They do not know the history of our great empire because they are either too ignorant or too young…
