Nintendo Files New N64 Trademark in Japan

There is yet another N64 trademark.

The N64 Classic Edition is apparently still on its way. Nintendo filed another N64 trademark. This time the Japanese video game maker trademarked the text "N64." A year ago, a N64 controller logo trademark has been spotted. Back then the rumors about a N64 Classic Edition console went already wild.

The new filing for N64 could mean that Nintendo is releasing a new classic console this fall. The trademark was spotted by Japanese Nintendo blog and also by the Japanese trademark Twitter bot. The application date is April 26, 2018 with the Classifications 9 (program for electronic games etc.) and 28 (toys and others).

An N64 Classic would be the third classic release by the Mario company after the NES Classic and SNES Classic.

The original N64 was released in 1996 and Nintendo sold 32 million units globally until 2003. The Nintendo 64, named after its 64-bit CPU was a milestone in video game history. The controller design influenced the controller that modern consoles have today. Games like Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time have been groundbreaking. GoldenEye 007 is considered to be one of the most influential games for shooter games.

The N64 Classic Mini could become the hottest holiday 2018 gift. Let's see if it happens. Nintendo will re-release the NES Classic end of June. We already pre-ordered two of the new 2018 NES Classic and you can get notified on your smartphone when the NES Classic goes on sale at Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy and others.

The N64 Classic would be released likely in November. There is also a trademark for the Gameboy that Nintendo filed last year. It remains to be seen what Nintendo will do with the popular handheld gaming console
