Nintendo has filed trademarks for the Nintendo 64 controller and others in Europe and it has fans around the world talking about what this could mean. While it isn’t uncommon for companies to refile for trademarks to retain the rights to them, this particular case is interesting because the NES controller, SNES controller, and Nintendo Switch also received similar filings with this minimalist and clean new look.
While this could be Nintendo standardizing for marketing materials or perhaps designing controller schemes for the new, much anticipated Virtual Console, this also may hint at the potential for the N64 Classic being the next console to receive the classic treatment after the SNES Classic releases this September.
What do you think this could be? Let us know below!
