This year seems to be quite amazing for the Nintendo as the company had already released its most awaited and speculated console, the Nintendo Switch and reports do suggest that the company is planning to roll out SNES Classic some time soon.
But it looks like that we are going to see another console from the company, more specifically N64 Classic Mini in the near future. The speculation comes right after the company filed trademark application for N64 controller lately. This trademark application was first noted by NeoGAF user Rösti who mentioned that up to four trademark were filed by Nintendo for its consoles. These are for the N64, NES, SNES and Switch consoles.
The application has sparked internet users with a speculation that the company might be releasing a N64 Classic Mini Edition in coming months since they were filed under the category of goods and services.
Earlier this year, the company filed an application for its SNES controller and later on, they officially announced the SNES Classic Mini console. New reports do suggest that the SNES Classic is close to its launch. According to general manager Satoshi Yamato, SNES is a form of virtual console, and has a planned release in September.
It would be possible to sell these titles as packaged software or via download cards, but if we were to start selling products like this in the future, I think we would first have to consider whether we can establish that kind of business model, and do our due diligence in finding out if there is sufficient demand for it.
While the new application suggest that the company might be introducing the N64 Classic Mini in coming months in its full glory. Do you believe that a new classic mini console will be released?
Stay tuned for more updates!
