Nintendo Struggling With ‘Super Mario Odyssey’ Trademark, ‘Eternal Darkness’ And Other Applications Accepted

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:

  • Arms
  • Eternal Darkness
  • Excite Truck
  • Snipperclips

You can read the full letter which explains the suspension here.

Thanks takumaru64 for the tip!

    1. Wait, what?
      “It’s highly unlikely that this situation will result in any delays for the Nintendo Switch title”
      The article specifially states that it’s very unlikely for this problem to cause any release issues. Not to mention that it’s more than half a year before the game’s earliest possible release – plenty of time to resolve any issues like that.

      1. That’s one of the reasons I don’t like the name, because I can’t help but think of Odysseus every time I see it. I don’t know, I just don’t like it for some reason. The game looks amazing, just the name is not doing it for me…

  1. Am i the only one with a deep down feeling that Eternal Darkness is an HD remake??
    I mean, they been acting like game cube emulation is not coming.. which leads me to believe that this could be an HD remake, which would be an awesome idea in it of it’s self.

      To simply emulate certain GameCube games would not do some of those games justice. Some deserve HD remasters with updated graphics, like Eternal Darkness! *crosses fingers for Eternal Darkness HD Remake*
