It really doesn’t surprise anyone that an N64 Classic may be on the horizon. Especially after the massive success of both the NES and SNES Classic. However, with no official word from Nintendo many have been wondering what the hold up has been on the announcement of an N64 Classic.
Well thanks to a post over on NintedoSoup, we may just have the first look at the rumored mini console. The photos are quite convincing as the design of the N64 Classic looks remarkably similar to both the NES Classic and SNES Classic.
As seen in the photos, without the controllers plugged in, the console looks exactly like a scaled down N64. A cleverly hidden latch will reveal that underneath the old school controller ports lies the proprietary Nintendo ports that we have seen on both of the previous mini consoles. Just like many were hoping there is indeed four controller ports, much like the original system.
Yet to be seen is exactly how the controller will look, but one can imagine that it’s strikingly similar to the original design.
It should also be noted that this is just a RUMOR at this point. These photos have yet to be confirmed real by Nintendo. With two previous Nintendo Classic systems already on the market, it wouldn’t be impossible for someone to make a convincing replica of what we have come to expect from the mini console line.
Of course, this leak isn’t the first convincing rumor that has been uncovered about the potential N64 Classic. One of the most interesting and convincing rumors was uncovered last year when YouTube personality John Riggs claimed to have discovered the 19 games that would be on the N64 Classic.
In his video, John claims that he discovered the list of games off of Nintendo’s official UK website where virtual manuals had been uploaded for 19 N64 games with no rhyme or reason. What makes this list even more convincing is that the website also features similar virtual manuals for the games on both the NES Classic and SNES Classic.
So while we still remain in the dark on if and when the N64 Classic will ever see the light of day, we still have quite a bit of tasty rumors and leaks to keep us busy speculating.
But we wanna know your take. Do you think the photos are legit? Let us know in the comments and don’t forget to check out more great gaming news and articles right here on WTFGamersonly.
