Nintendo trademarks reveal new products?

Variety of bizarre-sounding Wii products, including the Wii Handle and Body Controller

Sept 4, 2007

Nintendo's latest trip around the Japanese trademark board may have revealed a bunch of new Wii products and accessories, including the erm, Wii Body Controller.

The Japanese giant has registered trademarks for "Mii Contest Channel," "Nintendo Magic," "Mii Audition" and "Wii Handle," which all sounds pretty straightforward. It's also registered something called "Soma Bringer," which we're told is a type of noodle. Hmmm.

Most excitingly, Nintendo has taken the liberty of renewing its Pikmin trademark, which if you fancied speculating wildly - like us - might suggest a Wii installment for Miyamoto's flowery critters. We've got our fingers crossed.

Any guesses what the "Wii Handle" might be for?
