A recent EU trademark filing of a Nintendo 64 controller has led to rumors speculating that Nintendo plans to release an N64 Classic Edition in the future. While nothing is ruling that out, the EU trademark doesn’t actually point to anything whatsoever. The filings are with the European Union Intellectual Property Office have been filed in the “telecommunication machines and apparatus”, and “consumer video game apparatus”. While this is merely speculation, it’s a logical conclusion considering the company’s recent actions regarding retro gaming and the consumer response to it. The box retailed for $60 on release, now you are lucky if you can find one being resold for less than $200. That’s nearly as much as you would pay for a current generation console, and this is a game system that only has 30 games.
