WiiPointer, WiiCulture and !!M
After Wii Karaoke, Nintendo seems to have registered more trademarks associated with Wii. GamesAreFun.com reports about three trademarks: WiiPointer, WiiCulture and !!M, citing German news site GameFront.
The latter name is the console´s name turned upside down, which might point to a game that is played with the Wiimote held upside down. Alternatively, some people have associated it with the Wii´s rumoured messenger service, because it contains the acronym IM. Either way, it´s interesting stuff.
WiiPointer could become the official name of what is commonly referred to as the Wiimote in the Nintendo community. WiiCulture is an intriguing trademark that I would associate mostly with the online community, since culture is something that is built up by a society.
EDIT A ton of new Nintendo trademarks related to Wii surfaced, as Go Nintendo reports. Here they are:
Most likely, not all of these will come to use. Still, interesting stuff to mull over.
