While earlier reports this summer suggested an N64 mini might be on the way, the Japanese tech company is planning to reintroduce the Game Boy Classic once more after a recent trademark filing by Nintendo back on September 15, according to AnimeNewsNetwork.
First discovered by Twitter account @trademark_bot, the trademark in question describes it as a “program for home video game machine” and features an image of the first Game Boy that originally debuted in 1989.

With the NES Classic re-releasing in Summer 2018, the return of the Game Boy Classic might not appear until 2019 and it’s expected to be smaller than the original while including between 20-30 games, as 1,049 games were released for the handheld.
