Nintendo trademarks point towards a new Seaman game

segabits seaman
In February of last year, we reported on Nintendo wanting bring other publishers’ classic titles to their handheld, and Seaman was said to be one such game. Even earlier than that in 2010, Seaman creator Yoot Saito hinted that Seaman could very well be seeing a 3DS revival. Now, the blog Esuteru reports that Nintendo has registered trademarks that read very much like the beloved SEGA Dreamcast game. The trademarks are for games entitled “Mysterious Pet: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face” and “Mysterious Partner: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face”. While Vivarium Inc., the Nintendo 3DS, and Seaman himself were not mentioned in the trademarks, the previously mentioned news stories do support the possibility of these trademarks being a Seaman sequel or spiritual successor to Seaman. Siliconera notes that Yoot Saito worked directly with Nintendo on the Gamecube’s Odama and most recently developed Aero Porter for the 3DS.

    If Nintendo is actually making a new Seaman, they are going to screw this up badly. Please don’t let it be true. I can only hope this will be a game similar to Seaman and not a actual Seaman game.

    I rather Sega bring it to smart phones.

    I remember reading, in issue 0 of the Official UK Dreamcast magazine, that Mr ‘Nintendo’ Miyamoto said that the only game that interested him (apart from games from the aforementioned company of course) was Seaman. So I wonder if this is true, and if so whether Shigsy had anything part in it.
