SNES Classic outsells Switch's launch during first week in Japan

Nintendo has recently found tremendous success through the re-release of classic consoles in a new format.

However we should point out the glaring differences in both consoles, where the SNES Classic is priced at a fraction of the Switch, meaning that it makes it more accessible to the more casual gamer.

The SNES Classic Mini is the 16-bit, retro version of the SNES, but it only comes with 21 games out of the box - we can assume that a lot of them involve moustached men in dungarees - and "Cluster" does not feel that this is enough. So far the SNES Classic hasn't been as hard to get compared to the NES Classic in 2016.

Normally, the SNES Classic has a set default of 21 games, including the previously unreleased Star Fox 2, with set menus and backgrounds. A new Game Boy Classic hopefully has a modern display. It describes a "program for home video game machine" and includes an image of the first Game Boy originally released way back in 1989.

The trademark was filed on September 15, and this application covers a number of categories, including programs for smartphones, smartphone cases, key holders, watches, and more.

The Game Boy came out one year before the SNES hit stores in Japan in 1990, but perhaps with the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy coming up in 2019, Nintendo may want to line up a release of a Game Boy Classic Edition with that momentous occasion. Furthermore, not all games may work properly, especially since it was not officially released by Nintendo.
