It’s been long rumoured, and just based on the fact that the Nintendo 64 comes after the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo, that the Nintendo 64 Mini announcement must be imminent. Here’s why we think it can’t be too far away, why it’s a little harder for Nintendo to pull off than the former two consoles and which games we want to see on the console.
WHEN WILL THE NINTENDO 64 MINI BE ANNOUNCED?
The NES Classic Mini was announced on July 14th absolutely out of the blue on Nintendo’s social channels. Nintendo had never spoken about this kind of thing before and at first, it seemed like some kind of cruel April Fools prank. The SNES Classic Mini was announced a little bit earlier on June 26th (presumably to give more time for preorders to take place).
This means that there’s really not a lot of time left for Nintendo to announce the Nintendo 64 Mini if they plan to release it this year. There’s a few reasons why a Nintendo 64 mini is a little bit harder to pull off than both the NES/SNES Classic Mini which we’ll go into a little bit later.
