Donkey Kong Country Returns landing on Wii on 3rd December
Following on from Apple’s trademarking of the phrase “There’s an App for that” and Nintendo’s previous patent of “It’s-a-me, Mario,” the latter has just filed another trademark application for “It’s on like Donkey Kong.”
You might think that it’s a bit of a random decision, but all becomes clear when you remember that Donkey Kong Country Returns – a sequel to the 1981 SNES original – is landing on the Wii imminently. The phrase is regarded to have been coined by Ice Cube on Now I Gotta Wet’cha, but has appeared multiple times in TV and film since. If Ninty is successful in its bid, future use will have to come at a cost.
