Nintendo's latest trademark suggests there'll be a Game Boy Classic Mini

SNES game

Nintendo has been making quite the go of it lately with regards to its Classic Mini series. It was originally tweeted by a Japanese trademark bot, with an accompanying illustration depicting the iconic portable.

Based on its recent console re-release trend, we're starting to think that gaming is simply a front for Nintendo and that the company has been working on a shrink ray for the past few years.

The SNES Classic Mini is the 16-bit, retro version of the SNES, but it only comes with 21 games out of the box - we can assume that majority involve moustached men in dungarees - and "Cluster" does not feel that this is enough.

Nintendo's nostalgia-fuelled Super NES Classic has been out for less than two weeks, but it's already been hacked to add more games and custom backgrounds.

"In this video I show you how you can install your own custom SNES roms into the recently released Super Nintendo Classic Mini console". Assuming the numbers are accurate, the SNES Classic managed to sell 368,913 units in its opening week in Japan.

Though we wouldn't object to a Game Boy Classic Mini at all, there are some limitations to it.

Nintendo appears to be toying with everyone's emotions yet again, filing a trademark application that included an image of the original Game Boy and igniting a handful of rumors, speculations, and general confusion about what exactly this company is up to. Furthermore, not all games may work properly, especially since it was not officially released by Nintendo.
