Nintendo Hints at Game Boy Classic With Trademark Filing

SNES game 16-bit games a-go-go

As the company informed Glixel today, Super NES Classic Edition will be back in stock today at GameStop and ThinkGeek while shipments will start shortly after on October 12th for U.S stores.

The trademark in question was discovered by the Twitter account @trademark_bot.

Based on its recent console re-release trend, we're starting to think that gaming is simply a front for Nintendo and that the company has been working on a shrink ray for the past few years.

Now, a Japanese trademark application has popped up for a Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy.

RUSSIAN CRACKER Alexey "Cluster" Avdyukhin has delivered on his promise to make the SNES Classic Mini a better games machine and released an update of his hakchi2 crack software via Github.

Though a Game Boy mini would undoubtedly be minute, it'd go someway to beating the Game Boy Micro, a beautifully-sleek 5cm long redesign of the Game Boy Advance, released in 2005. Nostalgic games such as "Zombie Ate My Neighbors" is part of the list, aside from those already included in the original and official list.

If this is the first sign of a Game Boy Classic, then we shouldn't expect it to appear until 2019.

The website of the Japan Platform for Patent Information categorises the trademark as relating to "home video game consoles" and "programs for smartphones", as well as more unusual physical manifestations such as "watches" and "necklaces". There were 1,049 games released for the handheld, so Nintendo shouldn't have any trouble choosing a couple of dozen.
