Nintendo files trademark application potentially for N64 Classic.

No comments

With the Nintendo Classic line proving to be one of Nintendo’s best (and deadliest) creations in year, fans are eager to know what’s next. While the SNES does launch later this year, will their be more to come? According to trademarks filed by Nintendo EU, there is a chance we could see a N64 Classic Edition sometime next year. Here is what was uncovered:

 

On July 18, 2017, Nintendo Co., Ltd. filed in Europe via the European Union Intellectual Property Office four figurative trademark applications related to various game controllers. The applications are as follows:

No. 016991325 – Nintendo 64 controller
No. 016997637, NES controller
No. 016997652, SNES controller
No. 016997702, Nintendo Switch controller

They are all registered under the same goods and services:

9 Telecommunication machines and apparatus; Electronic storage media recorded with programs for computers; Electronic storage media recorded with programs for consumer video game apparatus; Electronic storage media recorded with programs for arcade video game machines; Electronic storage media recorded with programs for handheld electronic game apparatus; Electronic storage media recorded with programs for smartphones; Cases for smartphones; Controllers and joysticks for cell phones; Parts and accessories for cell phones; Controllers and joysticks for computers; Computer peripheral devices; Battery chargers; Rechargeable batteries; Integrated circuit card; Earphones for consumer video game apparatus; Earphones for handheld game apparatus with liquid crystal displays; Microphones for consumer video game apparatus; Microphones for handheld game apparatus with liquid crystal displays.

28 Consumer video game apparatus; Parts and accessories for consumer video game apparatus; Controllers and joysticks for consumer video game apparatus; Cases for controllers for consumer video game apparatus; Protective films for controller of consumer video game apparatus; Arcade video game machines; Parts and accessories for arcade video game machines; Handheld electronic game apparatus; Parts and accessories for handheld electronic game apparatus; Controllers and joysticks for handheld electronic game apparatus; Cases for controllers for handheld electronic game apparatus; Protective films for liquid crystal displays for handheld electronic game apparatus; Card game toys and their accessories; Amusement machines and apparatus for use in amusement parks; Game machines and apparatus; Sports equipment; Toys; Toys with built-in chips.

To reiterate a bit, this filing is only for a N64 controller, but it is listed exactly how the SNES & NES ones were. It could potentially mean a N64 Classic is in the works, but this does not confirm anything. Hopefully if it does come to be, around twenty or more games this time around on it would be wonderful. Would any RARE games appear on the console? Who knows, and only time will tell.
