How To Hack The Mini SNES To Add More Games

It released a Classic Mini SNES.

Given the success of the NES Classic, which sold out nearly instantly, it's no surprise that the SNES Classic has been all the rage since launching in Europe and the U.S.at the end of September.

According to Ninten-Switch.com, the trademark application that was tweeted out by a Japanese trademark bot was filed on September 15 and is for "the first Game Boy", first released in 1989.

Looking for something a little more universal? DarkGiygas created this awesome border, which mimics original Super Nintendo box art. However that might not be all because there is a chance we could be getting a Nintendo Game Boy Classic Edition as well, or at least that's what a recent trademark has indicated.

The Game Boy came out one year before the SNES hit stores in Japan in 1990, but perhaps with the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy coming up in 2019, Nintendo may want to line up a release of a Game Boy Classic Edition with that momentous occasion.

A trademark citing does not always mean a real product, but a fact that can't be denied is Nintendo's Classic Edition brand has enjoyed a massive success. In 2005, the Japanese firm came up with a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance, dubbed as the Game Boy Micro.

Nintendo has yet to confirm anything on the topic, but it did previously file a trademark for the Nintendo 64 and the prevailing rumour is that Nintendo are planning a Classic Mini version of that console.

Would you like Nintendo to do the Game Boy or the N64 next? It is unclear if and when that might happen since 2018 is most likely the year we'll see the N64 Classic Edition (if it ever materializes).
