N64 Classic could be on the way for the holiday season!


According to Business Insider, a patent filed in July for a miniature version of the N64 was approved, and even more exciting, we could see the N64 Classic hit store shelves this December. No announcement has been made, yet, but it’s very likely. The reason? Playstation.

Sony just announced that they will be releasing the Playstion Classic mini system on December 3rd, for $99 dollars. The system will come preloaded with 20 games.

The “Classic mini” system craze started about two years ago with the NES Classic, and was followed by the SNES Classic. The NES Classic has 30 games on it, and the SNES has 21. That leads us to believe that the new N64 Classic System, if it’s announced will have about 15 games on it. Hopefully more, especially since Playstation will have 20.


So what games would you put on it? Here’s our list, and we hope it comes true!

  • Super Mario 64-A classic system has to have a classic Mario Title
