So far Nintendo has released the NES Classic, the SNES Classic, and judging by the success of these mini consoles, it’s not a stretch to think that Nintendo could have more retro consoles that they might revive in the future. Now according to trademark filings spotted in Japan, perhaps a GameCube classic could be in the works.
The trademarks don’t really tell us much except that they are related to the GameCube. Given that Nintendo has stopped making the GameCube for a while now, it has led to speculation that perhaps this could be for a GameCube Classic. This is actually not the first time that we’ve seen trademark filings from Nintendo that hints at more retro revivals.
Earlier this year it was discovered that Nintendo had filed a trademark related to the N64, leading to speculation once again that a N64 Classic could be launched. So far Nintendo has kept mum on the entire thing, but we do know that the company does have plans to re-release the NES Classic tomorrow, giving gamers who missed out on the first wave a chance to buy it.
That being said, both the NES and SNES Classic were launched in the later part of the year, which means that if and when Nintendo does launch the N64 or GameCube Classic, we will probably have a more definitive answer in the next few months.
