Nintendo Files Trademarks For Game Boy Color And GBA In Japan
Nintendo has filed more trademark applications for its well-known products in Japan.
The trademarks in question are for the the terms “Game Boy Color” and “GBA” – the latter of which is a common acronym for Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance handheld. Both were filed by Nintendo on 14 October 2021, although they were only recently published in November 2021.
Both trademarks apparently apply to uses such as “video game program, downloadable video game program” and more.
While Nintendo renewing its trademarks isn’t anything special, there have actually been recent murmurs that Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles could eventually be heading to the Nintendo Switch Online service. It remains to be seen whether or not these trademarks are related to such rumors.
We’ll report back if we hear more in the future. Stay tuned.
