Could A Nintendo Game Boy Classic Edition Be In The Works?

Could A Nintendo Game Boy Classic Edition Be In The Works?

"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on a SNES Classic on any of the auction sites".

Russian cracker/hacker "Cluster" has already found his way into Nintendo's brand new Super NES Classic, a record time compared to his attempts to crack the original NES Classic.

According to Ninten-Switch.com, the trademark application that was tweeted out by a Japanese trademark bot was filed on September 15 and is for "the first Game Boy", first released in 1989. The trademark does also cover "home video game console programs", however, so it will be interesting if this is just Nintendo resigning their properties, or whether some news is forthcoming concerning the handheld that revolutionized the industry.

The SNES Classic Mini is the 16-bit, retro version of the SNES, but it only comes with 21 games out of the box - we can assume that majority involve moustached men in dungarees - and "Cluster" does not feel that this is enough. As of now, there has been no comment from Nintendo over the development.

Still, it would appear Nintendo has made good on its promise to get more units into consumers' hands.

Trump Called for Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Weapons
While Trump's relationship with the press likely represent a new low among presidents in the modern era, there are parallels. Trump said his administration would "look at breaking that deal up", but hasn't followed through on the threat.

In fact a trademark filing discovered a few months ago seemed to indicate that the next console to be released in "Classic Edition" form would be the N64.

As with the other Classic consoles, we should also expect this Game Boy to be smaller than the original and to include between 20-30 games.

Even though a Classic Mini Game Boy is not completely out of question, there are some limitations to it. To use it, you just need to plug your system into a Windows computer using a micro USB cable, then run hakchi2 and follow the on-screen instructions. In May, Samsung licensed the add-on, which is now available for $49.99, notes AnimeNewsNetwork.

Famitsu reports that consumers bought up 368,913 Mini Super Famicoms during the hardware's first four days of availability. It is unclear if and when that might happen since 2018 is most likely the year we'll see the N64 Classic Edition (if it ever materializes).
