Driven: 2019 Toyota Corolla ZR Hybrid Talks The Talk, Walks The Walk

I’m in a quandary. Like lots of other petrolheads, I love cars from my childhood – in particular, those from the 1990s and early 2000s. These were perhaps the twilight years of cars with manual transmissions with somewhat iffy safety ratings, rattly rides, and plasticky interiors. Many from the 1990s made do with one or two airbags at best, A- and B-pillars were often thin, visibility was excellent, and things were just much simpler.

Nintendo Not Ready To Talk About Future 'classic' Console Releases

Nintendo Not Ready To Talk About Future 'Classic' Console Releases

Last year Nintendo announced and launched the NES Classic, which was a surprising move by the company and while the idea might have seemed novel, the console proved to be a smashing success. This led to Nintendo releasing another "Classic" console in the form of the SNES Classic, which has since proven to be just as big of a success.

So what does the future hold for other "Classic" releases? Unfortunately it seems that Nintendo isn't quite ready to talk about it yet. Speaking to CNN Tech (via Nintendo Life), Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime was quoted as saying, "We’ll have to do another interview sometime in the future where we can talk about that. But certainly, we recognise that our consumers love all of this great legacy content."
