Will you be their player two?

Like so many others, we at Nintendo Life get swept up in the romance that is in the air during St. Valentine's Day.

Disney Registers Castle of Illusion Trademark

To what end?

Here's a curious one: Disney has just registered a trademark for Castle of Illusion that explicitly states it refers to video game cartridges, discs and software.
