Nintendo may be set to revive its classic jet ski racing Wave Race franchise, after the company recently filed a European trademark for the name.
According to the EUIPO database, Nintendo filed for the ‘Wave Race’ trademark in Europe earlier today. The trademark application was made in NICE class 9, which covers “computer game programs; downloadable software programs for playing computer games and video games over the Internet”, amongst others.
No further information on the title can be gleaned from the application at this time, so we will have to await official confirmation of Nintendo’s plans.
The original Wave Race was released in 1992 for the Game Boy; a critically successful sequel, Wave Race 64, followed in 1996 for the Nintendo 64.
