Nintendo 64 Classic Edition

Nintendo’s trademark filing leads to speculation about an upcoming N64 Classic Edition.

Nintendo’s latest trademark filing with the EU Intellectual Property Office has fueled speculation on a potential N64 Classic Edition. As you can expect this has legions of loyal Nintendo fans super excited at the possibility of its release. Can you imagine all the great games you could have on an N64 mini?

The NES Classic was a bigger hit than Nintendo or anyone could have ever imagined selling over 2.5 million units in its short life time. With fans giddy with excitement over the heavily-anticipated SNES Classic Edition, the next logical step could be an N64 Classic Edition. This could be Nintendo’s next massive hit since gamers are clearly interested in Nintendo’s classic consoles and legacy games – many of which have become iconic classics that for the most part stand the test of time. Since the NES Classic came out in 2016 and the SNES Classic is coming this year, the N64 Classic could be the must-have gift for Christmas 2018.

Of course, Nintendo could also have another avenue to release Nintendo 64 games via a potential Virtual Console for the Nintendo Switch – if that were to ever see the light of day. You’ve just got to make this happen Nintendo, PLEASE!!! Making the entire Nintendo portfolio – from the NES, SNES, and N64 to Gamecube, Wii, and Wii U – available to gamers would just send sales into the stratosphere for the Switch. Would it be too much to wish for a Netflix-style Nintendo service offering all the best Nintendo games you could ever want to play? That would truly be a dream come true!

Here are a handful of hit games we would be excited to see on an N64 Classic Edition:

If the N64 Classic were to come to fruition, Nintendo may be faced with a few obstacles. First, Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie and a host of other games were developed by Rare, which is now part of Microsoft. That could certainly makes things difficult in terms of getting these blockbuster hit N64 games onto the N64 Classic but it’s not impossible.

As you can see there are a ton of fantastic games that could make for an awesome Nintendo 64 Classic Edition. So it’s a no-brainer that it would be a massive hit easily selling millions of units. What games would you want to see on the N64 mini? Sound off in the comments below.
