The American director of Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo 64 Classic Mini is not on the planning of the company for the time being. But, as the same director says, it is not excluded that this product will never appear on the market.
For now no Nintendo 64 Classic Mini
Since the releases and successes of the NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini sit Nintendo fans wait for the Nintendo 64 Classic Mini. This console should be on the shelves before the end of the year. However, on an approved trademark after we have not heard anything from the N64 Classic Mini yet. Now has the American Nintendo director. Reggie Fils-Aime, in an interview with Kotaku let us know that the small game console is not planned at all. Not at present, at least.
We were clear when we did the first two Classic series that, for us, these were limited time opportunities that we could not see as a hardware system to the launch of Nintendo Switch. That is the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system.
So while consumers may have been anticipating something, we view these as limited time opportunities. We’ve also been very clear that the releases of the NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini have been there so that we can get more and more with the subscription service
Fils-Aime lets know that when fans want to enjoy older content, they have to be on the subscription that is now available for the Switch. However, all this news does not mean that we will never see a Nintendo 64 Classic Mini.
I would not rule anything out, but I can tell you that is not in our planning horizon.
