A filed trademark for a Nintendo 64 controller might suggest that Nintendo is planning to release a N64 Classic Mini in the near future.

As spotted by eagle-eyed NEOGAF user Rösti, Nintendo has filed four trademark applications related to Nintendo game controllers, including an application for a Nintendo 64 controller. On top of the filed N64 controller trademark, Nintendo has also filed trademarks for a NES, SNES and Switch controller. As noted by Rösti, all trademark applications have been registered under the same goods and services.

Earlier this year, Nintendo filed a trademark for a SNES controller, and officially announced that they would release mini version of the SNES later this year. The NES Classic Mini was released last year, and releasing a N64 mini would surely make sense. We will keep you updated on this matter.
