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."

Interestingly enough this comes on the heels of rumors that Nintendo will be releasing "Classic" versions of its older consoles. For example there was a recent trademark sighting for an N64 Classic along with a Game Boy Classic. It is possible that neither of these consoles are in development and that Nintendo is simply looking to protect its IP, but as Fils-Aime says, we guess we’ll have to find out more about Nintendo’s plans at a later date.
