Lately, there’s been a lot of talk going on concerning the Nintendo 64 mini. Is it coming? Is it confirmed? What’s all this news about? So that is what we are going to discuss in this article.
The Nintendo filed for a Nintendo 64 trademark and everybody is getting crazy over it. This trademark was filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office more than a year ago and has finally been approved. It is specifically for the N64’s unique controller featuring a black and white image of the controller.
Recently, another trademark by the Nintendo of Japan was filed in Japan which covers a lot more than just a controller. It is for a video game programs, the purpose of a “TV game machine”, download capable electronic games and also this one includes the classic controller too.
All this have started generating a lot of hype and rumors that Nintendo might revive their classic console this year. The N64 Trademark is all in Japanese which basically states that they are reaping their trademark concerning the Nintendo 64. They have also done this before for other classic systems that have actually come out like NES, Super NES but they also do this to protect their property.
Typically they will renew trademark on properties just to maintain that, which makes sense as there could be Nintendo 64 games being released on Nintendo Switch in the future or that can be played via emulation. Some fans also believe that the company might create a virtual console for the Switch giving customers a heady mix of classic and modern platform games.
But we should not get our hopes all up as last year it was kind of a buzz as well, people were saying that the next classic system is gonna be a Gameboy as the company trademarked the design of the 1989 Gameboy which actually did not come out at least till now but anything could be surprising, they might release a Gameboy Classic.
Anyways we know one thing for sure that NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini were sold very fast and went out of stock so this clearly shows that people are demanding remakes of retro classic consoles.
The company itself has not confirmed anything about working on such a console but if it arrives, it will have some serious competition this time around with other manufacturers like Sony as they just announced recently about launching a PlayStation Classic that will come with a mini PlayStation One console and 20 classic games for $99 USD.
So that’s all we known for now, we will have to wait and see if it is actually gonna happen. Tell us what you think about it in the comments section below. Stay tuned for more tech info and exciting new stuff.
