Nintendo’s next Micro console, SNES Classic, is ready to launch this fall, but it cannot end the company’s retro plug-and-play line. A new trademark filing suggests that even in a miniature Nintendo 64 pathway it is possible.
Nintendo recently applied for a trademark for the three-dimensional gamepad with the EU Intellectual Property Office (via NeoGAF). The application is listed under the goods and services, which suggests a trademark related to a physical product.
Micro consoles and Company plan
Nintendo filed similar trademarks for NES and SNES controllers before the announcement of those related micro consoles, which states that the company can also plan to release a N64 Classic at some point in the future. Some analysts have predicted that a plug-and-play version of N64 can follow SNES Classic, so this trademark application gives some weight to those principles.
NES Classic was released in November 2016. It was recovered for $ 60 and pre-loaded with 30 classic games. However, most fans could not get their hands together as the console sold them soon as soon as new shipments were issued. Despite its success, the NES Classic was shut down only after six months after worldwide shutdown.
SNES Classic the US and Europe have been released on 29 September and include 21 of the console’s best titles, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2. A fellow history book will be released on September 29. Like its predecessor, SNES Classic will be available only for a limited time; Nintendo says that it is planning to ship “micro console” only by the end of the calendar year 2017, although it will produce its “substantial units” for the NES Classic.
Plug-and-Play versions of Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 are also ready to release this fall from ATJs. Console will be available in many editions, with high end Saga Genesis flashback and attic flashback 8 gold retail sale for $ 80 each. Pre-orders for those two consoles start at the end of this month, on July 28th.
