Those hoping for a sequel to the fantastic Eternal Darkness should be pleased this morning as Nintendo updated the trademark on December 17th. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that a new game is coming, it does give us a tiny bit of hope. Oh, and remember the Vitality Sensor for Wii? Well, Nintendo has also renewed the trademark for that in the United States. There’s speculation that Nintendo is still planning to do something with the device, but at the end of the day it’s just speculation.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Vitality Sensor is going to be one of the Quality of Life products, calling it right now…
50% of those who plays this potential Eternal darkness remake with Vitality Sensor, will die of heart attacks because they are nothing more than scared cattle…
Fuck. U took the words right out of my mouth. Except I was going to say these 2 would go hand in hand with each other. Sanity meter and vitality sensor.
That sensor is on a short leash AMD looks like it will fall right off if you move.
How is this blue ocean technology? Nintendo said QOL was going to be neither wearable technology nor unwearable technology. If this is QOL then I can see why so many investors backed out after Nintendo’s investors conference several months back.

Seriously, does anyone else think this peripheral is pointless, in fact, as pointless as Kinect?
Kinect was always useless though. Never done right. And vitality sensor wouldnt be for every game but if done right the games wouldnt feel right being played without the sensor.
For wii fit? Perfect
For fatal frame? Hell yeah
For super mario? Negative
Resident evil? Yup
Eternal darkness? U damn right.
Well, the sensor better be cheap and done correctly unlike Kinect which is shit and merely a copycat of PSEye trying to oust Nintendo Wii’s remote.
If it has anything to do with spying on us then I’ll go rogue…
Its a sensor to read blood pressure when the body reacts to certain stimuli like Unconditional Stimuli from jump scares. Its not meant to spy on people like that Kinect/NSA/Skype BS on Microsoft’s side that only morons think its not happening which it is since M$ supports NSA. Nintendo doesnt nor ever do that to their consumers and I’ll be damned if they do.
You can spy on people in different ways than just vision…
I know. Voices, text messages, comments and emails too. But heartbeats…?
To make it simpler, they can monitor your pulse and who knows what else from there…
Japan doesn’t support NSA’s illegal crap.
Japan is allied with the US and since it has been know for some years now that Canada is involved with such garbage, I’m sure Japan is too…
Not to mention that the human hero Snowden has exposed that corrupt government of yours for spying the entire world regardless of foes or allies…
Well, we’ll see what comes to light. Maybe Snowden has stopped NSA on their tracks by his whistle blowing and now NSA is exposed and wouldn’t try that underhanded BS spy games again.
To me, the CIA and FBI are far worse than the NSA…
CIA maybe. Not sure about FBI. But NSA pretty much can spy on anyone as much as CIA. FBI is more of a domenstic organization for US security and law enforcement purpose.
copycat of PSEye? Are you for real? Do you even know anything about kinect? Sometime I hate nintendo sites because of stupid kids like you. If you hate something, hate it but don’t talk bullshit or learn your topic. God.
Ass, PSEye tracks movement via video picture. Kinect is a copy of both that and Wii Remote trying to nab Wii’s popular thunder with motion controls while PSMove is a awkward ass knockoff of the Wii Remote but I give it credit for one thing only: At least it works WAY better than Kinect.
Man! This looks interesting, especially for me; I live in the other corner of Earth.

Eternal Darkness- The Sensor of Sagacity
Oh. My. God. I’ve had dreams for years about the ultimate, highly immersive horror game. Essentially requires a gaming chair that controls the temperature, whispers stuff in your ear, hits you with puffs of air, makes smells, etc. A key feature in this fantasy, though, is the game hears your voice and monitors your heartbeat to alter the gameplay. This sounds very similar to what I invisioned. I am very excited for this.
It’d be awesome if they updated the trademarks for them with the intent of using the vitality sensor with Eternal Darkness 2. Of course, the Vitality Sensor would have to be changed from something attached to your finger to something else like a wristband or something. Otherwise, it will just get in the bloody way.
