Nintendo Trademarks 3DS and a Bunch of Other 3DS-Related Names

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 18, 2010


Even though the name of Nintendo’s next-gen portable gaming platform hasn’t yet been officially announced, since it’s going to be a 3D device, it’s appropriate that 3DS was just trademarked by the Japanese giant.

Nintendo trademarked 3DS, 3DSPlay and 3DSWare. 3DSWare makes me think of DSiWare, the gaming distribution network that’s used by Nintendo for the DSi.

It’s definitely a clever name, since it combines 3D with DS. It’s also very simple all but seals the deal that 3DS will be the name of the new portable console. What do you guys think? Will it be 3DS or something more complicated? Personally, I think that it’s a great name.
