Nintendo still hasn’t given up on Eternal Darkness for the Wii U

Eternal Darkness Wii U
Nintendo isn’t giving up on Eternal Darkness for the Wii U. The company just filed to keep its “Eternal Darkness” trademark, which leads us to believe that they haven’t given up on bringing Eternal Darkness to the Wii U. But Nintendo still hasn’t announced anything and refuses to comment on the (potential) game.

At this point, it’s like one of those “will they won’t they” TV shows, where the answer just seems to drag out forever. This time, Nintendo actually filed for a new Eternal Darkness trademark, instead of just changing the existing one, which was filed in 2010.

It could also be a just a matter of Nintendo keeping their trademarks and not letting them expire. After all, it costs only about $300 bucks to apply for a trademark at the USPTO.

Eternal Darkness was originally released over 10 years ago on the GameCube. Developed by Silicon Knights and released on 2002, the survival horror game quickly attracted an avid fan base. Cool fact: Eternal Darkness was the very first Nintendo-published game to get an M-rating.

A spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness, called Shadow of the Eternals, is currently trying to raise funds on Kickstarter for a release on the Wii U and other platforms. The project initially wanted $1.5 million, which turned out to be a stretch. They’ve changed their project and have currently raised $150,000 out of $750,000 needed.

          Nintendo should remake it HD and add 30 player online and more.

          • Steven_Segal

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I meant adventures, but assault is really good too. They’re both amazing, and the reason I want starfox on the Wii U, besides the fact that I’m a furry

            adventures=dinosaur planet

          • Steven_Segal

            That’s why I want Gamecube games on Wii U. I missed on so many great games on the Gamecube…

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Gamecube had so many great games… I dont know how the ps2 outsold it, and everything else… Maybe it just doesnt age well, but I tried playing it today and its pretty iffy…

          • Steven_Segal

            Yeah it has, for me all the Gamecube was for playing Melee. I had so much fun when I was a kid.

        • Mochlum

          I have a huge list.

          Super Mario Sunshine
          Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
          Mario Kart: Double Dash
          Mario Power Tennis
          Mario Golf (forgot the name for GCN)
          Mario Party 4-7
          Luigi’s Mansion
          Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
          Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures
          Kirby’s Air Ride

          • Steven_Segal

            Well, Jungle Beat, Mario Tennis and Prime 1,2 (Trilogy) already released on the Wii but the other ones I would like to see and play on Wii U.

          • Linskarmo

            I haven’t been able to find the Prime Trilogy with a reasonable price anywhere though. :(

          • Steven_Segal

            It’s very expensive and hard to find apparently.

        • Mark Thom

          hack a wii :O LOL LOL

          • Steven_Segal

            Nop, Steven Segal hacks nothing.

          • Jarvis

            You looks very friendly. I need you help. I made a petition for a Wii U version of The Division. Pls sign up at change.org . Thanks!

          • Steven_Segal

            I sign it!

          • Jarvis

            Thank you ! Share it if you can!

          • Steven_Segal

            OK

        • Jarvis

          Sould Calibur U would be awesome.

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      Luigi Mansion is a great contribution to year of Luigi.

    • Guillermo Moore

      Its impossible because gamecube had analog triggers, Wii U does not. How would you control Fludd in Sunshine? same reason why Gamecube games couldn’t be played with the classic controller

      • Steven_Segal

        They could release a new controller (like they did with the classic).

      • Jarvis

        it isn’t so hard. Nintendo must make a patch, app or software upgrade and done.

    • Jake

      I find it funny there r PS and Xbox fanboys here downvoting every comment b/c they have nothing better to other than play with their d!(k$. I will get 6

      • Steven_Segal

        Yeah, apparently XBOX Live and PSN are under maintenance and they can’t play their shooters and they are trolling in the meantime.

        • Jake

          But they do it everyday

          • Steven_Segal

            Yeah but not on this website!

        • Jarvis

          It was now a bit stupid. I like my Wii U but you must understand, Nintendo did a very bad job in the last year, of course lot of people are unhappy with Wii U. (like me) I think Wii U is much better than PS4 or Xbox1, but Sony and Microsoft are better in development and it’s very important for a new console.

      • MrDownvote’sAssistant

        I can assure you that many of these downvotes are, in fact, from us here at Downvote&Co.

        Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

        • MrDownvote

          Why yes you are completely correct. I don’t see a negative profile picture yet…
          You may get fired if you don’t find a negative profile picture.

          Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            My apologies, sir, as the internet browser I was previously using wouldn’t allow me to upload images. Would a picture of the ‘Condescending Wonka’ meme be acceptable? Sarcasm and a tendency to talk down to people are quite negative.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote

            Yes this profile picture is very suitable for the context. Remember in this companies image, Dowvotes are the equivalent of these peoples views on Upvotes. So if you hate a comment give it a thumbs up. People like my brother are so out of touch with the real world. Him and other people seem to be getting mad because of all the happiness we are spreading with our Downvote spam.

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            I understand the situation, sir. I was deeply moved by the movement you started, and am ready to create pure spamming bliss the likes of which this website has never seen!

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote

            I sometimes feel so misunderstood. My employees are the only people that understand my views on things. Thats why I like to build a personal relationship with them. I am curious to ask however, who are you? Before you became my 3rd employee?

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            My other account is under the name Lord Carlisle, sir.

            And don’t worry. While MrUpvote may have a few more followers, you have your employee’s loyalty at your side. Together we can overthrow his oppressive rule in the comments section and bring forth a new era of downvoting!

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote

            My employees loyalty has to be unquestionable. Thats why I fired my old assistant. He badmouthed me in public, a demonstration of how much loyalty he lacks. If your loyalty was ever to waver or disperse I would drop you like a wild turkey on thanksgiving! This rule applies to all employees. It is written in the small print of the contract.

      Or remake Gamecube games for Wii U !

      Why am I the only one without downvote spam 0.0?

            I will leave as soon as I defeat MrDownvote, he has become a nuisance and I will attempt tot destroy him. We are sorry for the inconvenience and will attempt to right the wrongs,

            Yours Truly,

            Upvote&Co turn that frown upside down!

            You can’t defeat your opposite! One cannot exist without the other. You two are doing a never-ending fight. Either you both willingly stop or someone stops you!

          • MrUpvote

            I am willing to do whatever it takes.

          • Mario

            You two are really stubborn.

        • MrUpvote

          Brother! You have downvoted these citizens long enough!
          I will upvote the comments he downvoted and more

            You shall not question my authority! My old assistant wants to work for you. I just fired him. He was horrible at his job anyway, you can have him. I will not accept you Upvoting these people. What did they ever do to you?

            Because downvoting is a horrible job. Upvoting is much easier and better, plus we pay higher than your stupid downvote co.

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            Hello, sir! I’d like to apply for a job as your new assistant’s new assistant! If you accept me onto the team, I shall gladly change my profile picture to something negative.

          im a homosexual and you are all fucking gay

          • Mario

            I really don’t care about that!

      • Mario

        What the heck is wrong with this Downvote guy?

        • Merrfn

          That we will never know…

          • Mario

            So what you’re saying is that he’s crazy.

          • NkoSekirei

            dont wry if mr downvote continues to do this its a matter of time before the mod throws the ban hammer at him for abusing the voting system

          • Alex

            This is the first I ever seen a huge battle of so many up-voting and down voting, is it because of this Eternal Darkness news that they got mad that Nintendo never gives up?

          • gamesplayswill

            So, basically what you’re saying is… your thumb is alive?…

          • MrDownvote

            Please! Do I look like I am crazy?

          • Mario

            Yes. You, your brother, your assistants and his.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          What isn’t wrong with him?

          • Mario

            Nothing.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Lol, exactly. He’ll be banned along with his alts.

      • MrDownvote’sAssistant

        On the contrary, you have indeed been blessed with the glory that is downvote spam! But the latter half of your comment was correct. You are very lucky to have said downvotes.

      I have not backed any kickstarter campaign before but now I will back this project as Pre Order Supporter in about two weeks. This game will rule on Wii U.

    • Gotallofthem

      Any Eternal darkness “Real Sequel” would only be on the WiiU, since it belongs to Nintendo.
      This other game “Shadow of the eternals” is a “SPIRITUAL” successor, not a sequel to the original, nor the same game.

    • Nintedward

      Dear Wiiu daily mods please ban these ”mr downvoat” assholes. Thanks, everyone.

      • Baum 「ツリー」

        And while they’re working on that…delete the upvote idiots, too…it’s pretty annoying to scroll through 50 comments before the normal stuff starts -.-

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Agreed.

  • kinghenroc187

    i want this to be exclusive only to nintendo nothing els nintendo needs all the help they can get back to restore its name again

  • Guest

    If Nintendo still holds the Eternal Darkness franchise, how is the spiritual successor being planned for the PC and PS4?

    • Marcus Navarro

      It’s a spiritual successor. What it’s planned for doesn’t really matter. However, it would only make sense that it comes to the Wii U.

    • Archiq09

      story is not same eternal darkness but world yes (medieval version)

    • uk phyco

      you answered your own question dude ??

    • Moreck

      It could be like what Prometheus is to the Alien franchise: clearly related, but not necessarily following the same canon & characters.

    • Andreas Sunde

      It’s a spiritual successor, in the way that Bioshock is a spiritual successor to System Shock. It builds on the previous game, but it’s not the same franchise. Meaning Nintendo has no right to Shadow of the Eternals, and Precursor Games can do whatever they want with the IP.

  • Archiq09

    Eternal Darkness is very good
    it’s similar to lovecraft horror story :3

  • Stoenk

    Didn’t Conker’s Bad Fur Day for the N64 have an M rating?

    • Phillip Fauble

      Yes, but it was published by Rare.

      • Stoenk

        I thought it was published by Nintendo in the USA and Australia and by THQ in Europe. I’m pretty sure Nintendo is mentioned in the title sequence (“Nintendo Presents”) and there’s that sequence with the N64 logo and the chainsaw.

        • Steven_Segal

          No, it was published by Rareware (RARE) in North America, europe and by THQ in Australia.

          • Stoenk

            ok I think i got it now

  • YouCannotBeSerious

    I just down voted everything. I did not even bother reading them comments.

      What do you have against Precursor? Many of them were key people developing the original Eternal Darkness, so I think they know what they’re doing.

  • poo

    STRANGE SINCE CONKER 64 IS ALSO M RATED AND PUBLISHED BY NINTENDO YEARS EARLIER!

    • Nicolas Eddowes

      Actually Rare published Conker, but still Nintendo published GoldenEye

  • TULFich

    Can they just release the “cube” titles for Wii U´s VC already?

  • Pikachief

    Hopefully theyre saving it for one of the first game cube virtual console titles if they do those! And i know theres no analog. Maybe they’ll make it so that pushing or not pushing lz will increase or decrease the pressure. Or maybe thy realize that the games will play just fine without the analog.

  • Bill Bong

    Why can’t comments be about the article and not about who has the bigger dick (is the bigger dick).

        I kinda expect to log on here tomorrow and find 90% of the comments on this topic removed by Ashley and co. Obviously this stuff is putting people off posting, which in turn will put them off visiting, and they’ll just go to other websites instead. Not good.

          “Downvote&Co” haven’t really done anything against the rules, but they need banned.

        ah ok.
        sorry then, i was sure it was publish by nintendo!
        :(

        • starwars360

          You welcome but you can try google and find out before comments so this is weren’t hard.

          • Luffy

            i was just sure it was. But yeah, I spoke hastily.

  • MrDownvote’sAssistant

    It seems to me that rather than having seen the light, you have fallen from it. I am happily employed under MrDownvote, and will not have you speaking of him in such a manner. Repent now and my employer may yet allow you to gain enlightenment in the way of the downvote.

    • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

      Yes of course, corporate slave. Your views are obstructed and corrupted by MrDownvote. Though he is a bit of a badass, he is pathetic and a no life loser. Your are being manipulated beyond belief. Good luck. The pay here is great. How is your $8.02 a week going? Here I get $20.80 week. Seems that the public gives more donations to fund Upvote&Co than you. Mabye that should be a sign, that the public gets more happy from Upvotes than Downvotes apart from messed up ignorant people like you.

      Upvote&Co turn that frown upside down!

      P.S I upvoted you. Umad bro?

      • MrDownvote’sAssistant

        I question the stability of the company you work for, seeing as how unprofessional that comment was. Despite my complete disgust with your idealism, I realize that you somehow think an upvote is a good thing. So, I’ll try my best to be flattered by your course of action. Let me return the favor with an upvote of my own.

        And as I, the great condescending Wonka once said:

        More upvotes than downvotes?

        Obviously that represents the general public. You or any others under MrUpvote couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it.

        • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

          Please, your lack of immaturity is overwhelming me. I know the way that your contorted things of views work. That Upvote is the equivalent of a Downvote in my logical, flawless views. However I take no offence because I love Upvotes. Such positive things. The fact this stands that people are more prepared to donate to Upvote&Co than your bosses shoddy business. And just for good measure notice the way I am a personal assistant and you are the THIRD employee. I think that addresses who has the most authority here.

          Upvote&Co turn that frown upside-down!

          • MrDownvote

            Though your text is incoherent and makes no sense, you bring up a good point. My Downvote&CoEmployee3 needs a promotion. Seems like you have no more authority than he does. I also think the reason you are my brothers personal assistant is because he is bad at choosing employees, and you are his only one. He will take anyone onboard at this point. If my brother was ever to create a strong business full of employees, you would be fired. I sure as hell know that because when you worked for me you were the crappiest person I have ever employed.

            Yours sincerely,
            MrDownvote.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

            I know the real reason you promoted him. You feel pressured that I and MrUpvote will win this argument if he doesn’t look more intimidating and like he is more than one of your mere corporate slaves! However this tactic will not waver me nor your brother.

            Upvote&Co turn that frown upside-down!

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            Corporate slaves?

            Please, tell me more about how massive your employer’s company is compared to ours.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

            Dear MrDownvote’sAssistant,

            The amount of truly believing, un-employed free thinkers in MrUpvotes company is unfathomable. I am currently am the only employee in Upvote&Co. We are a company that gets supported and carried by thousands. We do not force or inflict our views when they are not wanted, with exception of scum like you. The public accepts and generally loves Upvotes. Do you see the people with 60 Upvotes complaining? No you don’t. Do you ever see people complaining when somebody has a mere 4 down votes? Yes, yes you do. Face it Downvote&Co is doomed unless it branches out to bigger social media websites such as Facebook. You have lost before you have won.

            Yours truly,
            MrUpvote’sNewAssistant.

            Upvote&Co turn that frown upside down!

          • MrDownvote

            The only thing Downvote&Co is doomed for is success. People will learn in due time. And for the record where is my brother? Seems he isn’t backing you up. Mabye he has seen the error in his ways and has come to join me…|

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            To whom should be very concerned,

            The general public is, for the most part, completely unaware of the joy and fulfillment that comes with pressing the dislike button. Society has things completely backwards, and only the negativity of Downvote&Co can overthrow the tryanny of MrUpvote. And on the contrary, our war on upvoting has only just begun. But we have certainly won this battle. As I, the condescending Wonka once said:

            Successful Corporation?

            Please, tell me more about how you’re the only employee.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            You clearly have no authority, as your entire company is founded on a flawed idea. A mere illusion. Why, my employer dropped you like a half-eaten stale cupcake. Allow me to demonstrate your denial. As I, the condescending Wonka, once said:

            Oh, so I have a differing opinion than you?

            Tell me more about how evil and flawed I am.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

            The company I work for is filled with unemployed followers. That just shows how much the general public loves us. People un-paid supporting our beleifs and reasoning, without recognition or reward. People love us. You will never be able to change that. The whole world sees Upvotes good and Downvotes bad. Face it. You will never be able to defeat Upvote&Co. You like the uprising and rage in the comments? Just confirming the fact that everyone hates Downvote&Co. Look at the comment at the top! Currently it has 59 upvotes to 3 down votes. Now show me a comment with 59 downvotes and 3 up votes. My point exactly.

        • MrDownvote

          Congradulations on the promotion MrDownvote’sAssistant.
          Change you name now to confirm you accept the new position on my staffing roster.

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            Thank you for the promotion, MrDownVote, sir. Given my new position, I feel it worth suggesting a way to aid in the obliteration of MrUpvote and his cohorts. Just as I utilize the Condescending Wonka’ meme, perhaps other employees could embody a diverse array of memes in order to point out our enemies’ stupidity.

            Downvote&Co making the world a better place for everyone to enjoy!

          • MrUpvotesNewAssistant

            Memes are not funny or intimidating and quite frankly they are childish and immature. If that is the best you have to outwit and destroy Upvote&Co you may aswell pack your bags and leave.

          • MrDownvote

            That sounds like a fantastic idea. Sadly my other 2 employees do not wish to be named publicly. The are ‘incognito’, spies if you will. Once our business expands a bit I will most certainly suggest various memes for profile pictures of new employees. Hopefully random passer buys will see this part of the comment section as it is at the top of the page. They will see our logical points in this debate and decide to join us. Hopefully I have lots of staff applications this morning. Now keep up the good work. If we get the sudden flow of employees I am hoping for you may have competition for the top spot. So far day one of your employment you have stunned me with the valid points you put forward in that debate with my ex assistant. Keep in mind he had inside information and understood how we worked, yet you still outwitted him. I simply backed you up just to assert our authority and undeniable intelligence, though I know you had it all under control.

          • Downvote&Co Manager

            Is the origin of the ‘duck face’ meme ‘magnum’ from the movie ‘zoolander’ a suitable choice? MrDownvote suggested it. Oh yes, pleased to meet you. I am the manager of the company at the moment. I think the way I look so stupid, makes the opposition more enraged when our companies image outwits them.

          • MrDownvote’sAssistant

            While such a meme certainly seems to coincide with our mission statement of negativity, the ultimate acceptance of memes is up to MrDownvote himself, not me.

            And that is a fantastic tactic. I like to think that the pure sarcasm and know-it-all wit that emanates from my picture shall make our foes think twice about getting in a debate.

    Nintendo published Rareware games on 64: Goldeneye, Conker, Perfect Dark. All rated M. So your “cool” fact is false

  • Nicolas Eddowes

    Nintendo published Goldeneye 007

  • C.S. Bailey

    Just put up the cash Nintendo, you’ll get your money back if you fund a great game. Some of us would even take an HD remake if you could put it out within a year of announcement. Hell, a 3DS port might even move some units!

  • Clel

    Dang… just tuning in and I can’t believe the number of downvotes thrown around.

      Don’t worry me and MrUpvote will make this all work out. We are having a uprising in the downvoting community. Make sure to upvote all comments you see! We must stand strong and not let this new image overtake us!

    • MrDownvote’sAssistant

      I could hardly believe the number of dislikes as well. This new outburst of negativity helped me realize what a precious thing downvotes are. I am now employed under Downvote&Co, living the dream and doing what I love.

  • Maraccuda

    Nintendo own the rights to Eternal Darkness, but who would make a sequel?

    An in-house studio or a third party? I guess that’s part of the reason there has not been a sequel as of yet.

    Poor Silicon Knights. I miss them.

    • WiiUisgaming

      They are making a sequel. Go to kickstarter

      • Andreas Sunde

        Spiritual successor, not sequel. But yeah, same people, so it counts.

  • Maraccuda

    UGH, comment section spammed with downvote crew.

    Trolls must be getting desperate.

    I am new to this Disqus, any way to block comments from people?

    • Zombie Boy

      Afraid not, but the admins here are usually pretty good and all of the trolls get blocked sooner or later.

      • Maraccuda

        Always good to know.

    • discuss

      Just in case you don’t know yet: You can sort posts on “Newest”. I think it’s on “Best” at default.

      • Maraccuda

        Cheers, thanks for the tip.

  • Jarvis

    Well yeah. I mean the same thing. If Nintendo can release a Shadow of the Eternals Bundle, that would be awesome.

  • starwars360

    That is good to knew Nintendo keep this Franchise and I bet Nintendo will confirm one day future for Eternal Darkness II exclusive on Wii U.

    Really hopeful. Soooo glad knew that Nintendo rights owned to this Franchise. I am so exciting about lots of Wii U’s upcoming titles. 8D

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Good to hear. If Shadow of the Eternals doesn’t work out then maybe Nintendo and Precursor could team up to make an official sequel (which was my preference anyway)
    Even if that doesn’t happen, Nintendo could develop it themselves or find a party from outside EAD who’d be interested (I’m sure there’ll be a few)
    Please let this happen, there’s so much more to come from this would be franchise it’s hard to believe it hasn’t happened already but we need a new one. Not only would it be great to get another solid 1st party Wii U game but a really unique one which would help shut up the morons who are accusing Wii U of being “kiddy”.
    Now, any word on Starfox? : )

    • Christian Schoff

      Well Mantorok is still alive and manipulated all those people to take out all of his enemies in 3 different timelines. He then merged them into one where he was the only remaining survivor of all 4. So maybe now that he’s alone he has no need for Alex Roivas and tries to kill her.

      • MujuraNoKamen

        Then the sequel could be Alex trying escape from Mantorok and trying to finish him off as well. Or it could follow a different protagonist just have some sort of link to the Roivases.

    • TheFinger

      Men i could not agree more with you, but why nintendo or precursor games would not be willing to team up with the other one?

      • MujuraNoKamen

        Not sure why not, I hear that someone at Silicon Knights damaged the relationship with Nintendo and kind of wrecked the chances of a new ED but now that they’re working on Shadow of the Eternals and Nintendo renewed the license for ED, it shows the two of them see a future for the idea. If they were to team up again, put their differences aside and repair the relationship then it would make us all happy I’m sure.

  • Spike Ashford

    I do hope this means a possible Eternal Darkness sequel. We all need a little more Lovecraft in our lives and the Wii U needs it’s own horror title. Plus, if it sells well, we could see Nintendo make more adult-oriented games.

    Actually, Perfect Dark was published by Nintendo in Japan. It got a M rating.

    It’s more than likely just IP upkeep. Oh how I’d love to be wrong though.
