Nintendo Switch Online Might Boast Content Beyond Classic NES Games

Nintendo: Don't expect an N64 Classic anytime soon

Nintendo of America top man Reggie Fils-Aime recently spoke to Mashable about Metroid Prime 4, saying that the video game giant has 'expectations about when [Metroid Prime 4] is going to be released. "I would not ever rule something out, but what I can tell you is certainly that's not in our planning horizon", the Nintendo president said.

First came the NES Classic.

Given the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition's popularity, many have assumed Nintendo would follow them up with an N64 Classic Edition, but that appears unlikely for now. Nintendo rival Sony is cashing in on the classic consoles trend this holiday season with the PlayStation Classic. They've been a huge success with both fans and scalpers buying up the consoles and pre-order lists getting maxed out. Last year, Nintendo trademarked a version of the N64 logo in the "NES Classic" style.

"So it seems that we can draw two conclusions: first, that Nintendo's primary goal is to make the most of NES, and second, that once this is achieved, it certainly doesn't seem to look bad to take advantage of work done on other of its great platforms of the past", Fils-Aime added.

At the moment, the $20 per year service only offers a growing, Netflix-like selection of Nintendo Entertainment System games.

Fils-Anime spoke to Kotaku and said that the first two Classic series had been mainly created to plug the gap between the end of the Wii U and also the arrival of the Switch.

Reggie doubled down on curbing consumer anticipation, steering the conversation with Kotaku to the company's most recent retro gaming opportunity: the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. Fils-Aime said that these devices were created to help bridge Nintendo from the Wii U era to that of the Switch.

And regarding the possible reason for which Nintendo will definitely not be releasing N64 anytime soon, this could be explained by the fact that this is a tougher sell and it would also be tricky to replicate.
