Game Boy Classic Mini Related Trademark Surfaces
 

Nintendo filed a trademark in Japan showing the Game Boy.

While Nintendo fans still struggle to find the recently released SNES Classic in stock, the next retro release might have been revealed. Nintendo filed a trademark in Japan for the Game Boy.

The trademark filing does not mention the name Game Boy Classic Edition or Game Boy Classic mini, but a similar trademark filing showed up a year ago for the SNES Classic, according to Japanese blog ninten-switch.

A Gameboy Classic Edition is a slam dunk. The original 8-bit Game Boy was released in Japan on April 21, 1989, in North America on July 31, 1989 and in Europe on September 28, 1990. Nintendo sold over 118 million Game Boy handheld consoles until it was discontinued in 2003.

The screen on the original Gameboy was a 2.6" LCD with only 160x144 pixels. A new Game Boy Classic hopefully has a modern display. 

In the summer, a trademark application for the N64 has been spotted. It's not clear yet if the N64 Classic or the Game Boy Classic will be released in 2018. The Game Boy would have its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Here is how to get your hands on a SNES Classic today. GameStop restocks the SNES Classic today and also ThinkGeek will sell the SNES Classic today online and in stores. You can also enter our SNES Classic Giveaway, sponsored by The Tracker Appto win a free Super NES Classic Mini.
