Making waves

Nintendo of America has updated the trademark for watery racing series Wave Race. But don't get your wetsuit on just yet — there's no confirmation of a new game for now.

The trademark was renewed as of mid-August, according to Trademarkia. It's possible that there's a new entry into the series coming, but it could also be a case of Nintendo keeping its options open, or perhaps preparing for digital re-releases.

The original Wave Race jet skied onto Game Boy in 1992. In 1996 3D sequel Wave Race 64 came out on Nintendo 64 but, Virtual Console release aside, we've seen nothing of the series since GameCube sequel Wave Race: Blue Storm thundered out in 2001.
