Game Boy Classic May Be Nintendo's Next Big Seller

Share

Hot off the heels of the roaring success of the tiny editions of the NES and more recently, its younger brother the SNES, it seems Nintendo could be about to release a fingerheld version of one of their most popular handhelds, the Game Boy.

Nintendo appears to be toying with everyone's emotions yet again, filing a trademark application that included an image of the original Game Boy and igniting a handful of rumors, speculations, and general confusion about what exactly this company is up to. This news was reported by a Japanese Nintendo fan site, Ninten-Switch.com which has shared news of the application.

Eight of the suspects are LSU students and were active members of the fraternity, according to university spokesman Ernie Ballard. A coroner said doctor's facility tests found an "exceedingly raised" blood-liquor level in Gruver's body.

It doesn't specify the name on the trademark, but it covers a variety of "home video game console" programs as well as "programs for smartphones", "smartphone cases", "smartphone covers", as well as "key holders", "necklaces", and "watches".

What's more, the "HackChi" tool also makes it possible for users of the SNES Classic to assign a button on the controller to bring up the system's menu - by default, this requires pressing a button on the console. Some of the trademarks could be to protect the "Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy" brand or they could simply be to protect the Game Boy brand full stop.
