Before, Nintendo introduced the red and white machine and the super mini mini plate. At that time, there was a "retro game" craze on the market.
Although the two machines stopped production five months after they were launched, many emotional gamers still scrambled to start the product, and the reviews were good.
Influenced by this upsurge, other manufacturers are also launching products related to retro games. Sony announced plans to develop PlayStation Classic earlier, and Sega and ACTIVO launched a joint limited-limit audio player to remind fans of the design of Sega Saturn.
Although this upsurge does have a lot of positive effects on Nintendo, it seems that Nintendo has no intention of continuing. Reggie Fils Aime, president of Nintendo USA, said in an interview recently that there is no plan to reproduce the N64 console. Even if Nintendo does, it is certainly not the near future.

according toFastCompany's ReportReggie Fils Aime mentioned an idea related to engraving game in its visit. He said that the previous red-and-white machines and overloaded copies were just to fill the gap between Wii and Switch. Perhaps for this reason, Nintendo did not actually plan to make a complete copy of the old model, and it is normal that N64 Classic is not included in the copy plan.
Of course, even though red-and-white machines and super mini-copies have been discontinued, Nintendo still has plans for "retouching" - the NES game library on the Switch platform.
As early as September this year, Nintendo has launched one.Service named Switch Online. Users only need to pay $20 a year to play NES game library on Switch.Reggie Fils Aime also mentioned during the visit.:
At present, Nintendo is also enriching the content of the library, which will be an important part of Nintendo's plan to replicate classic games, and Switch will become the main place for players to experience classic games.
Indeed, it is very common for Nintendo to concentrate all players on the new generation of hosts.
After all, duplicate editions sell well in fact only a small number of products, the new generation of mainframe is the core of the current game market. It's the best way to promote hardware sales that classic players and new players are focused on this platform and let them communicate and attract each other with the game.
