Based mostly on its current console re-release development, we’re beginning to suppose that gaming is just a entrance for Nintendo and that the corporate has been engaged on a shrink ray for the previous few years. The identify for the Wii will need to have been impressed by one thing, in any case.
Now that we now have the NES Traditional Mini and the SNES Traditional Mini, a trademark has appeared in Japan which suggests the subsequent console getting used to check the Nintendo Shrink Ray may very well be the unique Recreation Boy.
Based on Ninten-Change.com, the trademark software that was tweeted out by a Japanese trademark bot was filed on September 15 and is for “the primary Recreation Boy” , first launched in 1989.

To us, the pure development could be to proceed re-releasing the corporate’s house consoles by shifting onto the Nintendo 64 Traditional Mini. This can be a perception that was strengthened by a current European trademark submitting for a Nintendo 64 controller drawing.
Although we wouldn’t object to a Recreation Boy Traditional Mini in any respect, there are some limitations to it. Although its video games would arguably be simpler to emulate than these of the Nintendo 64, it’d be exhausting to create a miniature Recreation Boy that’s inexpensive and true to the unique and embody a display.
That stated, Nintendo did show it might probably go tiny and useful with its 2005 Recreation Boy Micro so if the Recreation Boy Traditional Mini have been to emerge, we think about it’d be one thing much like the miniature Recreation Boy Advance.
With the DS line and the Nintendo Change available on the market, Nintendo clearly has no downside with splitting its time between house consoles and moveable consoles. A miniature Recreation Boy might merely be a solution to break up its basic lineup in an analogous method.
