Are you ready for this? “Mysterious Pet: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face and Mysterious Partner: Legend of the Fish With A Human Face,” has been trademarked by Nintendo in Japan, suggesting that Sega’s bizarre pet simulation game Seaman is due for a revival.

Japanese blog Esuteru spotted the filing and it was translated by Siliconera.

It follows suggestions from Seaman creator Yoot Saito that he is working on some kind of series revival.

In case you’re wondering ‘what the fuck is a Seaman?’ it was an old Dreamcast game that saw you tending to a fish with a human face. It starred Leonard Nimoy and it looked like this:

Thanks to Fanaticcism for the clip.

Would you like to see Seaman return? Let us know below.

Thanks Eurogamer.

    Whoa. I remember seeing ads for this in gaming magazines. Did not know it stared Leonard Nimoy. That’s almost as weird as him directing Three Men and a Baby.

    If Nintendo and Sega are really working together on a 3DS/WiiU port of Seaman instead of working on a better obscure forgotten IP like, i dunno, Burning Rangers? Someone should just take a piss in their mailbox out of spite. Seriously what the fuck…
