Nintendo has filed for a trademark
on the phrase "Eternal Darkness,"
the title of the GameCube's Silicon Knights-developed psychological horror game
. It tricked us by doing things like pretending to reset the console or lowering a fake volume indicator on the TV screen, due to a low in-game "sanity" meter. Apparently the trademark lapsed recently, and while we'd love to tell you that this means someone is working on a brand new version of Eternal Darkness
for the Wii, it likely just means that Nintendo is covering its trademarked bases.
Besides, if you just want a Wii game that will drive you nuts, try some SPOGS Racing
. That game is so bad it's crazy
