On February 01, 2017, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued an office action suspending further action on Nintendo’s trademark application for Super Mario Odyssey. There seems to be some hassles with the trademark because it’s clashing with a prior-filled application for Super Mario Run which falls under a smiliar filing. It’s highly unlikely that this situation will result in any delays for the Nintendo Switch title but it’s ultimately down to Nintendo to get this Trademark sorted to ensure no hiccups before release.
It’s worth noting that a few weeks ago the Trademarks for the following titles and their applications were accepted:
- Eternal Darkness
- Excite Truck
You can read the full letter which explains the suspension here.
