On July 18th Nintendo filed a patent with a very familiar logo.
Now some say they could just be covering their bases, but one has to wonder if this is a leak. The NES Classic was a huge success and the unreleased SNES Classic is already very highly anticipated amongst fans. Nintendo had such a long rich history of classics that the move does make sense. Unlike the other 2 re-released systems there isn’t really a way to experience the feeling of playing on a N64 controller on any other platform. It’s one of gaming’s most unique and the move becomes almost a no brainer at that point. However, there would be a lot of licensing issues since 3rd party companies contributed to some of the N64’s biggest successes. Goldeneye or Perfect Dark anyone? What to do you think?
