Nintendo files trademark for "Diddy Kong" in Europe. Can you dig it?

Since you guys liked my drawing so much, I finished it! I feel like an actual Diddy Kong Racing 2 would have some original characters on the roster. This is what I'd do if the game could only use preexisting characters.

That squirrel in the sweater speaks to me...

Also lol at birdo being the side series rep.

Do we even have an idea of how big Monster Games is? Can they really work on the Xenoblade port, co-develop Tropical Freeze, and make Diddy Kong Racing 2 within the same time frame?
A fair estimate I think is 20-30 people at Monster Games.

This is no greater update but just something I found rather amusing. Nintendo on July 16, 2015, requested OHIM to remove the following goods from class 28:

Toys for domestic pets

At the same time they keep goods like garters, sock suspenders, Chinese checkers, billiard equipment and fishing tackle. Strange thing to do I think.

In other news, the application was published for opposition on June 18. September 18 marks the end of the opposition period; the application has so far received no opposition.
