The conversation about Nintendo and old vs. new IPs is an age-old one, but it looks like a new IP could be on the way! Last week, Nintendo of America filed the trademark “Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace”.
Gematsu noted the trademark being applied for on April 2nd. It certainly points towards a new IP from Nintendo; by the name, a sci-fi/fantasy game seems likely. Of course, with no further news from Nintendo, this could be nothing – think of previous Nintendo trademark applications such as Zii.
Could Nintendo be creating a new major game series to join their roster? Or could this be a smaller creation, possibly for the eShop? It might be neither! What do you think? Tell us in the comments!
