Game Boy Classic May Be Nintendo's Next Big Seller

Game Boy Classic May Be Nintendo's Next Big Seller

It seems safe to assume that Nintendo will want to continue the Classic Edition line, with the next obvious choice being the Nintendo 64.

Despite Nintendo asserting it would produce and ship far more stock of the Super NES Classic Edition/Mini Super Famicom than it did predecessor NES Classic Edition/Mini NES, the miniaturized early-90s console still sold out at most stores within hours of launching.

Normally, the SNES Classic has a set default of 21 games, including the previously unreleased Star Fox 2, with set menus and backgrounds. While North American, European, and Australian retailers received the Super NES Classic Edition in late September, the Mini Super Famicom didn't launch until October 5.

According to a post on Famitsu and subsequent thread on NeoGAF, the SNES Classic has sold over 368,000 units in just four days. Nintendo filed a trademark in Japan for the Game Boy.

Furthermore, there a lot of titles that will be available once users have successfully loaded up the program in their SNES Classic Mini. Perhaps it's thinking about giving the Game Boy the same Classic treatment? It describes a "program for home video game machine" and includes an image of the first Game Boy originally released way back in 1989. Fans were also reminded that the miniature console from Nintendo only has 300 megabytes of space, so they will have to make their choices carefully.

Back in 2005, Nintendo released a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance called the Game Boy Micro.
