Game Boy could be latest classic console to return, Nintendo trademark suggests

Nintendo Game Boy Rumoured to Get'Classic Treatment

A TRADEMARK APPLICATION filed by Nintendo has fuelled speculation that the firm could be about to revive the Game Boy.

It was spotted by a Japanese trademark bot, which tweeted it into the public consciousness.

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.

As usual, the trademark covers a broad variety of things and without official confirmation from Nintendo, it's possible that the company isn't planning a re-release of the handheld that began its dominance over the portable market.

They have been several rumours flying around this summer including that the Nintendo 64 could be making a comeback as a similar trademark was filed for this device on July 18.

Market Watch - Tracking These Shares: Sociedad Quimica Y Minera SA (SQM)
Despite the tumultous week, investors holding steadfast look to continue to see near-term gains despite the global uncertainty. Finally, Acrospire Investment Management LLC boosted its holdings in Sociedad Quimica y Minera by 307.5% in the 2nd quarter.

Classics such as Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are included.

If a Game Boy Classic is to hit the market, though, it begs the question of whether it will tread the same ground as the Game Boy Micro once did in size and functionality.

A few months ago, we were pretty excited (understatement of the century) to hear that Nintendo would be re-releasing a SNES Classic with 21 retro games - so imagine our excitement when we heard the rumor that they would also be re-launching the Gameboy Classic!

KitGuru Says: I have no problem with the idea of a Game Boy Classic pushing the N64 Classic back a bit more as it does house some classic titles. Just please, for Pete's sake Nintendo, please give people a built-in backlight.

Everyone has their own opinion on video games and games consoles, but if you think there's anything better than Nintendo products...well, you're wrong. Soz.
