Nintendo's N64 trademark confirmed

Last year's N64 trademark application is now complete.

On July 18, 2017 Nintendo filed a trademark application for various Nintendo 64 properties, hinting at the possibility of a Nintendo 64 Mini Classic. Today, the trademark application has officially been completed according to information from the European Union Intellectual Property office (EUIPO).

The trademark application features an image depicting the N64 controller along with a rather unique description of goods included under the trademark. For example, the trademark description lists the following items, all of which may hint at future plans for an N64 Mini Classic:

  • Cases for controllers
  • Arcade video game machines
  • Card game toys and their accessories
  • Game machines and apparatus
  • Toys
  • Toys with built-in chips

It’s worth keeping in mind that the trademark doesn’t explicitly confirm that a Nintendo 64 Mini Classic is in the works. However, similar trademark filings were made for both the NES and SNES controllers shortly before Nintendo confirmed the micro console designs. Could Nintendo have plans to announce the Nintendo 64 Mini Classic at E3 2018?

It’s definitely possible, though Nintendo has noted that they plan to focus primarily on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. Other items that may potentially be revealed at E3 2018 include the new Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch. While we wait for confirmation, take a look at the completed trademark application and let us know what you think.

Is Nintendo gearing up to release the Nintendo 64 Mini Classic, perhaps during the holidays? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below!
