Nintendo hints that a N64 Classic console is coming soon

Earlier in the week, Sony made the surprising but certainly exciting announcement of the PlayStation Classic, a new micro-console that follows in the tradition of Nintendo's NES Classic Edition and last year's SNES Classic Edition. Sane Trilogy, the likelihood of the original games appearing on the PlayStation Classic seems a bit low.

The retro console will come with two wired replica controllers, one HDMI cable, one USB cable and 20 pre-loaded classic games including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!

The miniaturization craze has spread to Sony, because they've announced their own tiny retro console with the PlayStation Classic - a throwback to the original PlayStation that was first launched 24 years ago. There also aren't many other N64-related things that we can imagine Nintendo might be planning, so it would be a reasonable guess to think this is for the next console in the Classic range. For some, these five titles may be enough to justify the PlayStation Classic's price tag, but it's worth pointing out that 15 more games are on the way.

"The 20 titles launching with the PlayStation Classic were selected due to their popularity amongst original PlayStation fans", the spokesperson told IGN.

While the rest of the games haven't been named, plans for remakes and remasters left people to speculate whether some games would be omitted from the PlayStation Classic to make way for redone versions of the titles. PlayStation Classic will be available for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP) on December 3, 2018.
