Nintendo has no plans for an N64 Classic Mini

Nintendo has no plans for an N64 Classic Mini, the company has recently asserted.

According to Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime, the N64 Classic Mini won’t be joining the already released NES and SNES Classic Mini systems any time soon.

“We were clear when we did the first two Classic series that, for us, these were limited time opportunities that were a way for us as a business to bridge from the conclusion of Wii U as a hardware system to the launch of Nintendo Switch,” Fils-Aime told Kotaku. “That was the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system.”

Fils-Aime said that while an N64 Classic Mini shouldn’t be ruled out in future, he said, “what I can tell you is certainly that’s not in our planning horizon.”

Better start looking for a new Christmas gift for a loved one, boys and girls.
