Nintendo Tipped To Resurrect Original Game Boy

Nintendo's already been tapping that rich vein of nostalgia in recent years with a series of "Classic Edition" consoles; re-releases of consoles from the firm's heydey in newly re-designed and compact form factors.

A new trademark application filed by Nintendo has ignited rumours of an impending Game Boy launch. With the Nintendo NES Classic releasing a year ago and the SNES Classic following suit in 2017, many would believe that the N64 Classic would be up next but it seems the company might have other ideas.

The new trademark pursuit fuels speculation Nintendo could be planning a Classic version of its revered Game Boy. I'm pretty sure I've still got the original in a cupboard somewhere!

It seems like the Japanese tech-company will be making all of us "90s kids extremely happy, as AnimeNewsNetwork state that they filed a trademark request on September 15".

The trademark is quite broad and covers a variety of features including apps, home video game machines and smartphone cases. Here at RetroEnt, we love everything about Nintendo. As I stated at the top of the post, Nintendo has not said anything about its future plans for Classic Edition consoles, but once the SNES Classic Edition wraps up production, the NES Classic Edition will make a temporary comeback in the summer of 2018.

However, while miniaturising the NES Classic and SNES Classic certainly made them more appealing to modern gamers, doing the same thing to the Game Boy is, arguably, completely unnecessary. It could be we have to wait until this time next year before the N64 Classic Edition even surfaces, let alone a possible Game Boy Classic Edition.unless we get both at once?

Everyone has their own opinion on video games and games consoles, but if you think there's anything better than Nintendo products...well, you're wrong. Soz.
