The Nintendo 64 Classic Could Be Arriving Soon

Nintendo’s rumored follow-up to the SNES Classic could be coming by the end of this year: a trademark application filed for a brand-new N64 controller graphic by the company last summer has finally been registered and published by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The style of the graphic is consistent with what was on the boxes for the NES and SNES Classic, leading many to believe an N64 Classic is inevitable.

It’s not 100 percent certain that Nintendo is producing an N64 Classic Edition, but plenty of signs suggest this is the case. The next question, then, is when we might see it launch. With the company’s previous devices arriving in late 2016 and September 2017, a release in time for the holidays seems plausible. Nintendo might also be looking to compete against Sony, which is releasing the PlayStation Classic on December 3.
