Nintendo has filed a figurative trademark for the Nintendo 64 controller in Europe. This could mean nothing at all, but it could also point to a possible N64 Classic Edition in the future. It’s not out of the realm of possibility given the reaction both the NES and SNES mini-consoles.
Of course, the N64 wasn’t nearly as big of a seller worldwide as its predecessors were, and some of the best selling games were created by Rare, who is now owned by Microsoft. It would be somewhat disappointing to see classics like GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, and Diddy Kong Racing skip the console. We’re probably a good year or more away from something like this happening, so hopefully Nintendo can work out a deal with Microsoft to license some of these iconic games.
