Nintendo Sold Nearly 370K Mini Super Famicoms in Four Days

The folks over at the Japanese site Ninten-Switch.com dove into the trademark filing and came back with a lot of information.

Given the company has found a new way to mint coin with their recent Lilliputian re-imaginings, a miniaturised miniature seems a high possibility.

According to reports, the hack was discovered by programmer Alexey Avdyukhin, who released a program that would allow users to plug their SNES Classic Mini to their computers and download additional games, as well as software packages. This trademark covers a wide range of subjects, from "programs for home video game machines, to smartphones cases, smartphone covers, key rings, cards, and necklaces".




Though a Game Boy mini would undoubtedly be minute, it'd go someway to beating the Game Boy Micro, a beautifully-sleek 5cm long redesign of the Game Boy Advance, released in 2005.

Nintendo appears to be toying with everyone's emotions yet again, filing a trademark application that included an image of the original Game Boy and igniting a handful of rumors, speculations, and general confusion about what exactly this company is up to. Some of the trademarks could be to protect the "Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy" brand or they could simply be to protect the Game Boy brand full stop. With the success of the NES Mini and the SNES Mini, it would be surprising if more Minis were not in the works. The famous Nintendo console is coming back in stock this week, so if you missed it make sure to grab one before Nintendo discontinues this one too.
