Nintendo registers new trademarks including Elite Beat Agents, Rhythm Heaven, and Disaster: Day of Crisis

Nintendo has registered new trademarks in Japan for multiple games including Elite Beat Agents, Rhythm Heaven, and Disaster: Day of Crisis.

The trademarks made recently include their other famous IPs Super Mario, Mario Bros., Yoshi’s Crafted World and Kirby’s Epic Yarn as well.

These registrations could mean anything but it would be great to see Nintendo going back to their dormant IPs.

Elite Beat Agents was a cult classic Nintendo DS Music Rhythm released back in 2007. The game was a Western take on the Japan only Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan games. The game failed to sell what Nintendo has internally expected, with Nintendo America President himself stating that although sales were strong, they could have been better. A sequel to the game has been rumored since the Nintendo Switch had been announced.

Rhythm Heaven is another Music Rhythm game that spawned two sequels – Fever for the Wii and Wii U and Megamix for the 3DS. The series is expected to make a return on the Switch.

Disaster: Day of Crisis was another cult classic released for the Nintendo Wii. The game was an action-adventure survival game where players battle terrorists and save citizens in natural disaster stricken areas.

Which of these games would you like Nintendo to bring back for the Switch? Let us know in the comments. I personally really want another Elite Beat Agents game, the game was quirky and fun as hell.
