Nintendo Has No N64 Classic Plans Right Now

Nintendo: Don't expect an N64 Classic anytime soon Say It Ain't So! Nintendo Chief Kills All Hope For An N64 Classic This Christmas

"That was the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system", Fils-Aimé said.

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.

"What I can tell you is certainly that's not in our planning horizon", says Fils-Aime.

Anyway, gamers who are still nostalgic over the golden era can rejoice at the thought that they can still find the NES and SNES Classic consoles available for purchase.

In other words, the NES Classic and SNES Classic were nothing more than revenue streams to help business move along as the Wii U died out and the Switch took steam.

Kotaku: "Would you rule out an N64 Classic coming?"

The interview explores everything Nintendo is up to at the moment, but a re-release of the classic console doesn't seem to be on the agenda right now.

So far this isn't good news for anyone hoping to get a tiny Nintendo 64 to play The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time this holiday season, and the news gets worse from there. "The Wii U had been fading fast by early 2016 and the Switch didn't launch until early 2017". Both consoles re-create the look of the original game consoles, albeit in a smaller size, and pack in a bunch of classic games.

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.

Nintendo at this point doesn't have to make any more Classic consoles, especially that now they've fulfilled the "bridge".

Regardless, if you were holding your breath for the Nintendo 64 Classic Edition, it may be time to exhale. Obviously some favorites will be missing - we probably won't see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games due to licensing issues - but there are a lot of possibilities there. But ends it by saying that's they're not now planning to make any more Classic consoles.
