Yes, but not now. PlayStation Classic Mini will be on the spotlight around Christmas. Bad timing if Nintendo released it then, but if they haven't announced it already... we're looking at 2019.

Yeah, I don't think it's coming this year. Too bad, I was hoping to see the N64 avenge itself in the 5th generation console wars lol.

@Euler

The next Nintendo Direct in November should reveal the N64 Mini... Sooooo...

@Cobalt they normally don't reveal those in a direct. they always just upload a trailer on youtube.
i also be surprise if we got a normal direct next month and not a Smash Bros theme instead.

im creep out with thoese eyes... :P

I am not sure if they'll release it this year but I think that it's obvious that they'll release it eventually. The other two classic minis have been a huge success.

I owned a PS1 day 1 and I must confess it doesn't have half as much nostalgia to me as the N64 does. I resented loading times at the time lol.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@GrailUK I had the N64 and my cousin the PS, I was impressed by real songs in CD quality in FIFA but the loading times in most PS games were abysmal and the visuals not very pretty.

While a normal November Direct would be cool, I don't see anymore normal Directs happening this year. They have Smash and The Game Awards, that'll last them on the announcements front until 2019.

They still have to announce that mystery mode for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and they'll probably reveal some new characters too. That would logically go in some kind of direct, since very little new content is ever revealed on the website.

Timeline wise, this is what it looked like for the NES and SNES Classic Editions:
NES - Revealed July 30, launched November 11.
SNES - Revealed June 26, launched September 29.

So it's probably a bit late for the N64 Classic to be revealed and launched this year, unless they bump up the release date as a direct response to Sony. That's not likely IMO.

I don't think they're doing the N64 classic this year and tbh I'm expecting the Gameboy Classic before that happens anyway.

considering the price of the PSX Mini and a N64 Mini and that they are NOT same company, many fans and consumers of both system makers will probably buy both mini's at the same time, and the consumers loyal to one system over the other, probably won't buy the other system anyway (not at first), so as I see it, even though they may be released at the same time, they would probably NOT be competing against each other

A rerelease of a GBC by itself would be unlikely, people would not want to pay more than $20-$30, which would not bring in enough of a profit to warrant its development, 3rd party game licenses and marketing, however...

if they remade a GBA with 20 GBA & 20 GB/GBC games combined, they could very easily sell it for a $100 and it would sell like hot cakes

@jhewitt3476 Well, they do have to take timing into account. If they want casual gamers to buy the systems in order to give them as Christmas gifts, which is a good point in December, I'm sure most of them will have to choose where to put their 100 bucks, and if they're casual they'll choose PlayStation most certainly.

It's obvious N64 Mini won't be out in December, they would've announced it already, but whereas maybe you and me will buy both, I'm not so sure about the kind of people who were excited with the previous minis after having skipped several console generations, which was a great amount of the sales. Or at least that's what I gathered from the excitement and madness I saw when NES and SNES Mini were released. They don't put much money into gaming and the minis are exceptions separated in time. Two at once I don't see.

@kkslider5552000
it is your money and if you wish to blow $40-$60+ on a Game Boy/Game Boy Color remake, that is you, but due to history of past systems, including the GBA Micro, which was $100 retail and the more recent Mini's of far greater capability, a rerelease of a plain old Game Boy even with 20 games would be unrealistic for anything over $30, but a rerelease of a GBA with 20 GBA games and 20 GB/GBC games will definitely sell $100 VERY easily

I don't really care what you think, you're just wrong. No one cares what you think it's worth, and quite frankly, the GBA was never as popular as the Gameboy. Based on other classic console releases, it is stupid to think that Gameboy Classic wouldn't sell well. You could argue against the NES Classic succeeding for several reasons, but it did, so those reasons don't actually matter.

It's like arguing that a lazy annual sports series isn't worth buying every year, it doesn't matter if you're "right", because that's not gonna change that it will sell well.

I was about to post the same, only Harvest Moon 64 and Ogre Battle 64 manuals are missing. I think that if they release a N64 Classic they would include a surprise. Amazingly, SNES Classic includes the first re-release of Yoshi's Island ever (excluding the GBA port) and even a new game, Star Fox 2. I don't think that we'll get a new N64 game but at least one game that has not been re-released before.
