In news that will excite the avid fans of one of Nintendo’s most humble yet storied titles, a recent filing with Japan’s patent office shows that at the end of September Nintendo filed a trademark for “Tomodachi Life,” which is of course the name of a cult classic 2013/2014 3DS title. 



Now, a trademark patent could portend something new, but it may also be basic legal upkeep. It’s also worth nothing that Tomodachi Life was known as Tomodachi Collection: Extra Life in Japan, so this may just be Nintendo covering their bases to make sure they have legal protection. This isn’t hard evidence of anything, but who knows? Maybe Tomodachi Life 2: Revengeance is the exact kind of killer launch app the Nintendo Switch 2 needs.
