Secret Nintendo Trademark Suggests Miniature SNES Classic Console Arriving Soon

A Japanese twitter bot has picked up an interesting trademark application from Nintendo, which hints at an upcoming Mini SNES Classic console as a follow-up to the successful NES Classic. Over the years, people have often accused Nintendo of creating false-scarcity to hype up their new products, but in this case it seems Nintendo really may not have realized how in-demand the NES Classic was going to be.

This trademark, quietly filed on December 5th, shows a Super Famicom controller. This doesn’t confirm there will be a SNES Classic, but ever since the NES version dropped, it’s felt like it would be inevitable, so this is definitely a compelling clue, none the less.

Here’s what the internet has to say: 

“Still waiting to get my NES Classic. Hoping they make many versions of this idea. Just a cool concept.” – Reaping

“Nintendo is dumb. That is why they have been outperformed and lost marker share to Xbox and Play Station. They could have made millions this holiday season but wanted to be “exclusive” instead, well you guys didn’t play us, you only played yourselves.” – SEAchick

“I knew this was coming. That’s why I held out on the Classic Nintendo. They just need to make sure the controllers are wireless. Tripping over chords is not the type of nostalgia I care to relive.” – Kal-EI85
