Back in March, we reported on a rumored Super Mario 35th Anniversary Collection for the Switch. Nothing has materialized on that front, however, Nintendo has been celebrating our favorite plumber in other ways this year. So far, they’ve released themed merch and the LEGO Super Mario sets, but there is still time before the official anniversary on September 13th for the collection to be revealed.
What does all that have to do with The Legend of Zelda? Well, in case you didn’t already know, next year marks the series’ 35th Anniversary! According to Twitter user NaZyrus07, Nintendo registered a new trademark for the franchise in July that covers almost everything from video games to baby diapers. The company did something similar last year for the Super Mario brand, so we may very well see some sort of Legend of Zelda celebration in 2021.
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.

If Nintendo follows a similar plan for The Legend of Zelda, we could see the Wii U remasters of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess ported onto the Nintendo Switch. It would also be the perfect year to release The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s untitled sequel, but given COVID-19’s disruption on the industry, it’s better to have a polished game than a rushed game that makes even Ganon cringe.
