Game Boy Classic potentially teased in Nintendo trademark

The firm has recently re-released mini versions of its classic consoles from the mid 80's and early 90's, the NES and SNES, so a relaunch of the vintage handheld gaming system would certainly follow the trend which has also been taken up by others, such as phone maker Nokia who recently released a remake of its almost indestructible 3310.

Nintendo has not made any official announcements regarding other Classic Edition consoles, but late last week, a trademark Twitter bot published a filing from Nintendo featuring a picture of the original Game Boy.

Clues to its development surface when new trademark filings regarding the handheld console surfaced.

The application, which was submitted on 15 September, was accompanied by an image of the Game Boy. It actually details several pieces of tie-in branded merchandise; wallets, bags, pouches, clothing, umbrellas, and so on.

However, the filing also covers programmes and storage "home video game machines' and "portable electronic game machines", hinting that some kind of console could be on the way". We heard about the N64 Classic Edition in July this year, and it was a very compelling set of evidence that has us virtually certain it will appear sooner or just seems that it will be later.

The original Game Boy was first released all the way back in 1989 and was the company's first ever hand-held console.

The long and the short of it seems to be that with the SNES and NES Classic Editions doing quite well, Nintendo appears to be taking its sweet time as far as new models are concerned, though they are indeed planned.
