Super NES Classic Edition Back In Stock At GameStop And ThinkGeek

Jumping back in time to make a Classic edition of the Game Boy simply doesn't fit this logical progression. It's been tweeted out by a Japanese trademark bot.

Previous year to everyone's surprise, Nintendo launched the NES Classic Edition, which is basically a re-release of the NES console that came with various NES games preinstalled. According to Rocket News 24, the name "Game Boy" wasn't actually part of the trademark filing, but that image is unmistakable.

That said, Nintendo did prove it can go tiny and functional with its 2005 Game Boy Micro so if the Game Boy Classic Mini were to emerge, we imagine it'd be something similar to the miniature Game Boy Advance.

The rapidly-developing SNES Classic hacking scene has already gotten to the point where owners of the system can add new stuff relatively easily. Could Nintendo be plotting more, though? To my mind, the only real question in whether Nintendo will release a retro Game Boy console or a retro N64 console first. You'll learn the three central ideas behind the game's development, how Miyamoto's inability to work multiplayer into Super Mario games led to him pushing the team at HAL to put them into Kirby, or even that the demo footage of each of Super Star's games was played by Masahiro Sakurai himself. In five months before going out of stock due to heavy demand, the NES Classic sold 2.3 million units, notes Fortune. It describes a "program for home video game machine" and includes an image of the first Game Boy originally released way back in 1989.

Nevertheless, if Nintendo does not come with any such device, you can always play Game Boy cartridges using Hyperkin's Android phone add-on SmartBoy. The N64 Classic Edition is rumored to launch sometime next year.
