The company applies the registration of a new brand; it is not a renewal, indicating possible new commercial uses of the name “Ocarina of Time”.
Nintendo Co, Ltd. has applied the registration of a new brand related to Ocarina of Time, the famous installment of The Legend of Zelda saga originally published on Nintendo 64 in 1998. According to the user Kelios, we are not facing the renewal of a Existing brand, but the registration of a new registration, so that the company may be working on new derivative products related to that name.
The patent description, carried out in Australia and Europe, makes it clear that the purpose of this legal backing relates to the entertainment sector. Now, does this mean that we are facing the possible announcement of a remastering of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Nintendo Switch? Absolutely. Anything can happen, but it is also possible that it is only a new amiibo figure, a card game, shirts or other manifestations related to the merchandising market.
There is a certainty, however, and that is that in 2021 the 35th anniversary of the series The Legend of Zelda will be celebrated, a propitious moment to recover works from the past. To date, the information is simply what we transmit here: Nintendo has registered a new brand of Ocarina of Time. The rest, although possibilities, currently do not have indications of anything else.

Next March 2021 will celebrate the third anniversary of the original title on Nintendo Switch and Wii U, which will also coincide with the 35th anniversary of the series, as previously noted. This year, meanwhile, it is Super Mario celebrating its thirty-fifth anniversary, although Nintendo has not revealed any plans related to this event.
