Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem has become infamous among Nintendo fans for being a fantastic IP that never really amounted to much. Even though Silicon Knights was developing a sequel to the beloved GameCube game before their bankruptcy, they game presumably went down with the ship. But Eternal Darkness fans now have another reason to hope.
Even after Silicon Knights' bankruptcy, Nintendo has once again extended the trademark on the Eternal Darkness name. It's hard to tell exactly what this means—could a reboot be in order? Is Nintendo still going ahead with Eternal Darkness 2? Or is this just a company reasserting control of one of its franchises, despite no future plans? Whatever this may be, I'm sure many of you out there are looking forward to the continuation of the series in some form.
But I'm still left with one question... What if this is Retro Studios' secret project?
