Is the Nintendo 64 about to make a comeback?
Anyone who came of age during the late nineties likely enjoyed one of the following: "Goldeneye 64," "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time," "The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask," "Mario 64," "Perfect Dark," "Diddy Kong Racing," "Banjo Kazooie," "Turok," and "Mario Party." Should you find yourself in this camp, this next bit of news may excite you.
Recently leaked images of the reported "Nintendo 64 Classic" have fans already in their nostalgic feelings. Originally found by Twitter user Nacho & Pistacho, citing a "source close to the company," the images were eventually picked up by Screenrant. The pictures feature an updated look at the beloved console, revealing an impressively similar likeness to the original, albeit with a modern flair. Given the ongoing trend of reissuing consoles, from the Super Nintendo to the seminal Playstation, it seems only logical for Nintendo to follow suit.
To be fair, it's still not confirmed that the "Nintendo 64 Classic" is even in production. Yet the images feel authentic, and one has to wonder whether we'll one day hear the ragged breathing of a wounded James Bond yet again.
