Nintendo really hit it out of the park with the NES Classic Edition. The mini-console takes fans on a trip down memory lane, and what a trip it’s going to be, no wonder the company has sold more than 200,000 units of the NES Classic Edition in the United States alone and it still remains sold out. While Nintendo hasn’t said anything about this as yet, there’s speculation that perhaps the company might come out with a SNES Classic Edition at some point in the future.
A Twitter account that follows trademark filings has spotted that Nintendo has made a filing to trademark an image of a Super Nintendo controller. The image itself doesn’t confirm much but it gives Nintendo fans hope that perhaps it might do a SNES Classic Edition as well.
Perhaps the company sees the benefit of doing this given that the NES Classic Edition has performed spectacularly. This mini-console is nothing more than a simple board that has a few pre-installed games packaged inside a retro case. That’s all there is to it.
Nintendo can do something similar with the SNES Classic Edition, it would require the company to write another emulator software and pre-install games originally released for the SNES console. However, just because it’s doable doesn’t mean the company is going to do it.
The trademark filing itself doesn’t really confirm much but it gives fans hope that perhaps Nintendo is thinking about launching another one of its classic consoles. If it does that, there’s no doubt that the SNES Classic Edition will be one of the most highly sought after items in the 2017 holiday season.
