Nintendo trademarks four new titles. The names of the titles are Wrecking Crew, Rhythm Heaven, Mario Super Sluggers, and Golden Sun. Let us hope something new will come from these trademarks, either a remake or a new title.
Nintendo previously seems to be trademarking a lot of stuff in recent times. The company has reportedly filed for a total of 15 applications in Japan, all of which are for the English language names of games or franchises according to Japanese Nintendo, the reasoning behind these new applications include “for home video game program, smartphone program, as well as non-game related purposes (merchandising etc).”
Following are some of the recent trademarks
Super Smash Bros.
Sin & Punishment
The Legendary Starfy
Link’s Crossbow Training
Following are the latest trademarks from Nintendo.
Mario Super Sluggers
The player controls Mario (or Luigi in two-player mode) and attempts to destroy all of a certain set of objects with a large hammer on each of 100 levels. Mario cannot jump because of the hammer’s weight. The player can select any level to start on from the title screen. Each level takes place on a playfield divided into an invisible grid, each space of which can contain one object. The player starts the game with five lives and loses a life whenever Mario comes in contact with an enemy or fireball. The game is over when all lives are lost.
Rhythm Heaven is played using the touch screen with the DS held vertically. Throughout the game, players use the stylus to play through several rhythm-based levels known as Rhythm Games, each with their own specific rules. Controls used include tapping the touchscreen, holding the stylus down on the touch screen, dragging it across the screen and flicking it off the screen. A guitar-based minigame late in the game known as Rockers, along with the unlockable guitar lessons, also include the use of the DS’s shoulder buttons to bend guitar notes.
Mario Super Sluggers
Mario Super Sluggers is the Wii installment follow-up to Mario Superstar Baseball. This game borrows many elements from the previous title, but it also includes new elements as well, including a variety of gameplay controls, such as taking advantage of the motion sensor controls that the Wii Remote provides. The game also has a more in-depth and more narrative-driven Challenge Mode, where, rather than only facing off against a Team Captain and a team of opponents, players interact with more characters, including a variety of various sub-characters, and play various small challenges to recruit them for their team.
Golden Sun‘s story follows a band of magic-attuned “Adepts” whose purpose, as it is revealed early on, is to protect the world of Weyard from alchemy, a potentially destructive power that was sealed away long ago. During their quest, the Adepts gain new abilities (called Psynergy), assist others, and learn more about why alchemy was sealed away. It was followed by a sequel titled The Lost Age, which takes place immediately after the events of the first game but focuses on the perspectives of the antagonists. The two games, put together, form one complete story.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that Nintendo would make a remake or totally new titles regarding these four new trademarks. It could either mean nothing or you can expect something new regarding this news. What do you actually think? Let us know in the comments down below.
