Ah, the humble trademark. Few things get the brain buzzing as fast as a company registering a name or title linked to your favourite game or console. Of course, when it's tied to the GameCube - a console that's very much back in vogue thanks to the arrival of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in December and the announcement that GC controllers will be supported on Switch - Nintendo fans like us get really excited.

So it turns out Nintendo has registered three new trademarks in Japan, which are all tied to the GameCube brand. While we're clearly nowhere near a GameCube Mini yet - we're still waiting on that N64 Mini, Nintendo - it does suggest Ninty has plans to use its boxy console’s legacy for something.

But what could it be? Share your predictions in the comments section below...
