New Nintendo Trademark Stirs Speculation of Mini Game Boy
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Nintendo filed a trademark in Japan on September 15 that is leading some to speculate that a Mini Game Boy console release could be on the horizon. Nintendo's trademark includes an image resembling the company's original handheld gaming device and it was filed under categories for "Programs for household video game machines" and "Household video games" as well as merchandise categories like "Key chains," "Bag charms," "Cosmetic tools," and "Clothing."
Nintendo previously filed trademarks for its Super NES Classic Edition and NES Classic Edition consoles a few months prior to the entertainment systems' releases.
The original Game Boy was released in 1989. Hyperkin's Android phone add-on SmartBoy allows users to play their Game Boy cartridges on their phones. The add-on was licensed by Samsung in May and is now available for purchase for US$49.99.
