Hello folks, how's it really going?

Ya know, back in 1996, Nintendo released an N64 console to compete with Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn, and two of the games I played as a kid was Super Mario 64 and Yoshi's Story. They were great games back in the day. But because that the NES and SNES mini came out, would it be really awesome if Nintendo will release an N64 classic mini edition as well as the Gamecube mini edition? I've made a list of 30 games in what the N64 mini will have on there. Check it out.:
1080° Snowboarding
Banjo-Kazooie
Banjo-Tooie
Bomberman 64
Conker’s Bad Fur Day
Diddy Kong Racing
Donkey Kong 64
extreme-G
F-Zero X
GoldenEye 007
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Mario Kart 64
Mario Party 3
Paper Mario
San Francisco Rush 2049
Star Wars: Episode I: Racer
Super Mario 64
Super Smash Bros
Pokémon Stadium
Pokémon Snap
Pokémon Puzzle League
The New Tetris
Yoshi's Story
Lylat Wars
Bust-A-Move 3 DX
Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness
Pilotwings 64
Dr. Mario 64

That's 30 games I could think of, but how about if there would be different games on N64 mini that you might really like? What would the N64 mini edition console look like? Would there be HDMI and USB-C sockets to connect to your TV? Will there be four controller ports? And what kind of favourite games would you like to have on an N64 mini? Will a miniaturized version of the N64 classic console have a higher or lower price? And would it be really nice if Nintendo will decide to release a Gamecube Classic Mini console as well after they released an N64 mini? Would we want to have an N64 mini in late 2019 for Christmas, or next year in early 2020? You decide by putting comments and I'll know all everything about it. Thank you!

I personally hope the days of the mini consoles come to an end. I have an SNES classic and a PS classic (still unopened) but would much prefer them to release collections on current systems. Put 20 or 30 N64 games on a switch cartridge, bundle in a USB N64 controller, charge $80 for it and be done.

I would be interested in both but a mini N64 seems easy enough (Wii was able to emulate it) and I would get it just for Diddy Kong Racing. GameCube is a bit more difficult because games are much bigger and advanced and I have all the GameCube games that I wanted to have on GameCube and Wii U. GameCube remasters like The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD are amazing though.

I think maybe the N64 mini and the Gamecube mini are the only ones I am wanting for Nintendo to release them this year or next year in 2020 perhaps. I think 30 games on N64 mini would be great. Also, would it be nice if Nintendo would also release a classic mini edition of the Game Boy Classic with 25 games built-in on one console?

@NikBoToon I think that the 3DS is perfect for that, it has GB, GBC and (10) GBA games and it runs DS and 3DS games. It's the definitive Nintendo handheld in my opinion.

I wonder if the N64 mini will have games like Super Mario 64, Pokémon Puzzle League, and Yoshi's Story? That would be interesting.

I do wish if Nintendo would release the N64 Classic Edition and Gamecube Classic Edition both together in this year or next year maybe.

By the way, what kind of games would you like for the N64 mini this year your having?

No. We had the SNES Mini so the next logical step is a Virtual Boy Mini.

People these days smh

Gamecube Mini is probably never happening as Nintendo ignores that system a lot. N64 Mini however I could see being rather likely especially with Banjo in Smash. My guesses for the games would be:

Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Super Mario 64
Mario Kart 64
Mario Tennis
Mario Golf
Mario Party 2
Yoshi's Story
F-Zero X
Star Fox 64/Lylat Wars
Kirby 64
Paper Mario
Super Smash Bros.
1080 Snowboarding
Wave Race 64
Donkey Kong 64
Diddy Kong Racing
Banjo-Kazooie
Banjo-Tooie
Perfect Dark
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Goldeneye 007 (if somehow licensing issues got worked out)

What about a Classic mini edition of the Game Boy Advance?

I'm gonna guess they'll release the N64 Classic next year. Come to think of it, it would be a good substitute for Rare Replay since it's likely to remain an X1 exclusive, with it having 360 games and all. As @Grumblevolcano said, Banjo's coming to Smash Ultimate as we speak, so it's very likely we'll see Rare's biggest hits on the N64 Classic. GameCube Classic probably won't happen for a couple years at least. I am unsure about handhelds like Game Boy and GBA getting classic edition treatments, but it could happen.

Agreed. And they could save themselves the cost & headache of making the mini console hardware, just sell the game packages for the Switch physical & digital. They'd also be saving themselves from the headache of possible backlash if people don't like the mini console hardware or it's controller.

My interest diminishes each passing year as the games get older. Seems like they're snoozing & losing. I'm closer to not caring anymore.

-Maybe an unlicensed Chinese N64 multicart will come to the switch via aliexpress.

Better than waiting for Nintendo to do something.

According to The Sun, Answering, Nintendo boss Shuntaro Furukawa confirmed that his company was looking at expanding the Switch Online service beyond the NES and into more recent games.

The firm "cannot tell new information about future classic hardware," at this point, he said, according to blog Japanese Nintendo, but then confirmed that there was something in the works without naming names.

He confirmed that the company was looking at "other methods of providing [N64 and GameCube games]" beyond Switch Online, and acknowledged gamers wanted to play these games.

The Wii and Wii U had access to an online Virtual Console which included games made for the NES, Super NES, N64 and more.

So i think we should wait for the N64 Mini and Gamecube Mini to come out this year.

Maybe it would be nice if Nintendo would release a Gamecube Classic Edition with over 25 games like Super Mario Sunshine, Luigi's Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mario Kart Double Dash, and two Donky Konga games with a bongo drum kit sold seperatly for the gamecube mini. How about that? Nice, isn't it?
