Custom Robo, a Nintendo series first released in 1999 has had its trademark canceled.
It seems that Nintendo didn’t renew the IPs trademark.. Does Custom Robo’s trademark cancellation mean that it will be unlikely for Ray-Mk III to return as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Will the series enter the public domain or be purchased by another company? Only time will tell.
Kouji Kenjou, Custom Robo’s creator isn’t done with robot games, however, since Synaptic Drive, a 3D competitive shooter for the Switch which will be shown off at Tokyo Game Show 2018.
