While The Legend of Zelda franchise has always been one of Nintendo’s key series, it’s hard to deny that Breath of the Wild elevated it to a far different level when it launched with Nintendo’s latest system, the Switch, and helped bring it to incredible heights. We’re now patiently waiting for the announced sequel to come, and it looks like there could be more on the way.
As discovered by Twitter user NaZ, Nintendo just filed a new trademark for the Legend of Zelda that covers a lot of different cases for the game. As NaZ and others are speculating, this could be in relation to the series’ 35th Anniversary next year. It’s also interesting to note that they also recently filed a new trademark for Ocarina of Time.
As highlighted below, this is pretty close to a big trademark for the Mario series that Nintendo filed last year. There is an alleged collection of Mario titles rumored to be coming this year to celebrate that franchise’s 35th anniversary. If that ends up being true, then we probably have a very good idea of what to expect from them Zelda-wise next year. Keep your fingers crossed those Mario titles come flooding in.
Out of nowhere, The Legend of Zelda JUST registered a NEW trademark this July, and it covers a LOT of classes. This is 99% for next year's Zelda 35 anniversary.
Mario got a trademark JUST like this one last year, most likely for Mario's 2020 anniversary.
