Are Nintendo N64 Classic and Game Boy Classic Coming to Holidays 2018?

It got quite around more new retro consoles from Nintendo.

Nintendo has raised hope to continue to release new classic versions of past video game consoles with trademark filings in 2017. As recently as May of this year, a new trademark for N64 has been spotted. The last time we heard something about a Nintendo Game Boy trademark was back in October of last year.

None of the surfaced Nintendo 64 and Game Boy trademarks mentioned Classic or Mini in anyway. It's pure assumption the registration of these trademarks was in preparation for the release of an N64 Classic Mini and a Game Boy Classic Mini.

Nintendo will release a dual pack bundle NES Classic and SNES Classic coming week in Japan. This release marks the end of the NES and SNES Classic line. In case Nintendo plans to release an N64 Classic or Game Boy Classic, the announcement would likely be made in the second half of September.

The original N64 was released in 1996 and Nintendo sold 32 million units globally until 2003. Nintendo 64, named after its 64-bit CPU was a milestone in video game history. The N64 controller design influenced the design of modern day consoles. 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.

Over 32 million N64 units have been sold worldwide. A release of an N64 Classic would be welcomed by a huge number of people who played the console in their youth.

The number of people who played the Game Boy is much higher than the N64. 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. A Nintendo Game Boy Classic would be instantly popular if Nintendo comes up with something compelling.

Nintendo is also expected to release new Nintendo Switch bundles for the Holiday season. Update: Nintendo announced on September 10 a new limited edition Nintendo Switch Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee bundle.
