Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime On Nintendo Switch's Classic Game Selection

Sorry Folks A Nintendo 64 Classic Isn’t Coming Anytime Soon

According to Fils-Aime, the other two Classic consoles mostly existed so Nintendo could get some money off new hardware at a time when the Wii U console was fading out and the Switch was still new.

After the NES and SNES Classic Mini retro games consoles were released in 2016 and 2017 respectively, it was thought that an N64 Classic Mini would be a natural follow-up. Now that Switch is out, Nintendo plans to shift focus to Nintendo Switch Online, which currently offers a digital library that only contains NES games.

While it is uncertain as to what level of support Nintendo fans will see for some of their most-beloved classic titles, one thing is certain: they shouldn't be holding their breath on an N64 Classic.

Could that mean N64 games will be made available on the Nintendo Switch at some point?

Netherlands 2-0 France
The Netherlands have failed to qualify for the last two major worldwide tournaments, but have enjoyed a resurgence under Koeman. We talk about it every time , that next step. "It shows that we have a bright future, we have to continue like this".

How far Nintendo's planning horizon goes is unclear, but Reggie's message isn't: if you were hoping to pick up a Nintendo 64 this holiday season, you're out of luck. Fils-Aime didn't say anything official in his interview with Kotaku, but what he did say certainly seems to suggest they will.

First came the NES Classic. "[The first two classic consoles] 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".

Rumours have been circling around regarding Nintendo's next "classic" retro console project. Fils-Aime did say that Nintendo is aware that consumers want access to classic content, which he notes is something that will "happen more and more with the subscription service". For the time being, an N64 Classic is not happening and certainly won't be releasing in 2018. And now that's Nintendo's doing well again, the need for more Classic Edition consoles may no longer exist. Obviously some favorites will be missing - we probably won't see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games due to licensing issues - but there are a lot of possibilities there.
