Nintendo of America has encountered difficulties securing a US trademark for The Wonderful 101. The Platinum Games title apparently sounds too similar to “The 101”, a previously filed trademark, although Nintendo has argued that its own mark is unlikely to cause confusion as the “wonderful” bit is the most memorable of the three components. You can read over the details of the case on NeoGAF. The Wii U exclusive drops next month; check out the opening cinematic.
