Nintendo Trademark Hints At N64 Classic Edition

A recently uncovered Nintendo trademark has revealed the possibility that an N64 Classic Edition could very well be on the way soon. The trademark was for the Nintendo 64 itself and discovered by the website Japanese Nintendo. The trademark was dated for today on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018. The Nintendo 64 trademark is for a variety of things including video game programs, a controller for video game hardware, joysticks, and more.

The most interesting and notable part of the Nintendo trademark is for the purpose of a “TV game machine.” This certainly seems like it is alluding to a sort of N64 Classic Edition or Mini depending on where you are located in the world. This is definitely a possibility given a number of factors that we already know. For one, Nintendo began producing a line of classic machines a couple of years ago, starting with the NES Classic Edition.

The NES Classic marks Nintendo’s first home console hardware so it was no surprise that it was soon followed up with the SNES Classic last year, which had significantly more units available than its predecessor. As we know, the third generation of Nintendo consoles was the Nintendo 64.

As such, an N64 Classic Edition absolutely seems like it will be the next move from the Big N. There are some bigger hints than just this, though. Interestingly enough, the SNES Classic was announced last year in late June following E3 2017 for a September release date. Considering it is currently May right now, the timing of this trademark is uncannily on point.

However, like the SNES, we don’t expect the N64 Classic Edition to be announced at E3 but most likely some time afterward or before for a release date this fall. As for what games will be included, we’d love to know what you would like to see in the Nintendo 64 Mini. Let us know in the comments below.
