But the possibility that's obviously more exciting is that Nintendo is on the verge of releasing a Game Boy Classic Edition, or even a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition console. However that might not be all because there is a chance we could be getting a Nintendo Game Boy Classic Edition as well, or at least that's what a recent trademark has indicated. Though numerous categories are not related to the gaming, it may have been included to protect the Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy brand, notes Kotaku. It must be noted that the trademark includes no details about the devices, but the image in the tweet makes is clear that it is for the gaming fans.

Though Nintendo is now more into mobile games, the Game Boy holds a nostalgic value to the fans.

The rapidly-developing SNES Classic hacking scene has already gotten to the point where owners of the system can add new stuff relatively easily.

Though we wouldn't object to a Game Boy Classic Mini at all, there are some limitations to it.

So, does this mean that a Game Boy Classic is in the works?

As for why Nintendo filed a trademark application for an image of a Game Boy, it's possible that it is simply trying to protect its brand, securing the likeness of the Game Boy for official swag and making sure other companies don't try to copy its design. If the company does move ahead with a mini Game Boy, it could be more on lines with the 2005 Game Boy Micro, and would be priced based on the number of games the company plans to offer with it.

You do have to do a little reading to learn how to make use of the tool and to accomplish the process which might not be for everyone, but the option is now there and all you have to do is find the games (which of course we recommend to dump your own cartridges as downloading the would not be lawful). In May, Samsung licensed the add-on, which is now available for $49.99, notes AnimeNewsNetwork.

According to a post on Famitsu and subsequent thread on NeoGAF, the SNES Classic has sold over 368,000 units in just four days. 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).
