1080° Snowboarding on the N64 and its sequel 1080° Avalanche on the GameCube are both fondly remembered arcade style snowboarding games, which were overshadowed a bit by EA's SSX series back in the day. Still it seems that Nintendo has a fond spot for the series as it's recently trademarked the name "1080° Ten Eighty".

Could this mean that another game in the series might be in development for Nintendo Switch? Might this trademark be needed for 1080° Snowboarding to appear on a future N64 Classic Mini? Perhaps we'll see 1080° Avalanche come to the Switch Virtual Console as one of the first GameCube games?

Be sure to speculate on this mysterious trademark filing with a comment below...
