Trademark points to digital Eternal Darkness release

A new trademark filed by Nintendo seems to suggest that a digital release for GameCube cult classic Eternal Darkness.

As spotted by Siliconera, a new US trademark for the game differs from an older one only in that it now includes "downloadable electronic game programs" and "downloadable electronic game software".

The site speculates that this could indicate a possible future release on Virtual Console for the game on Wii U.

The game remains a favourite amongst Nintendo fans and was even the subject of an attempted spiritual successor” at the hands of Precursor Games and former Silicon Knights president Denis Dyack in the form of Shadow of the Eternals.

That project was later cancelled after missing its crowdfunding targets and attracting a significant amount of controversy. Shadow of the Eternals was then relaunched on Kickstarter last week.
