I love mines. It's absolutely a fantastic hardware right at the end of the cycle.
The SNES launched at $200, so $80 for the SNES Classic was never really going to turn that many heads.
A GB Classic being more expensive than the original isn't a great look.
THANK YOU!If Nintendo wanted to go all in on the nostalgia they could go with the GB Pocket form factor and make it black and white, but it makes sense to lump the GB and GB Color together, so that GB Color games can be included, and so the GB Color type of form factor makes the most sense.
For playability sake I think the product has got to be backlit with GBA SP+ quality backlighting, even though none of the GameBoys ever had such a backlit screen.
Pokemon has got to be included in this product and a major part of the gameplay of Pokemon is trading, so a link cable has got to be included in the product.
I'd be much more excited about a new Gameboy with a high quality backlit screen than I was for the NES and SNES Classic (and I was pretty excited about those).
The underplayed hidden gem Mole Mania is a must include game.
I came into this topic just to suggest this game. I'm glad to see that it was already mentioned.
Yeah, it was one of my most wanted potential sequels for the DS, shame it never happened.Mole Mania gets so little shine, especially considering it's a Miyamoto game.
To be honest, a sequel would have been so perfect for the DS. Each screen could have represented terraineous and subterranean views of the level.
Where do I insert my credit card to pre-order?
My guess: These games. Have numerous versions of the console - one Red, One Blue, One Yellow determining the version of Pokemon is on it.
If they were to do a Game Boy Mini, they'd almost definitely have a Game Boy Color mini later on. Hense many "missing" titles.
Pokemon Gold / Silver
Zelda: Oracle Of Ages / Seasons
Wario Land 2 / 3
Mario Bros Deluxe
Metal Gear Solid Ghost Babel
Mega Man Xtreme
Donkey Kong Country
And the other handful of Kirby games on the system.
Regarding the main series Pokémon games being including the GameBoy Classic needs to do the following;
-Include the option of trading and battling, meaning a link cable has to be either included or sold separately. Both will bump up cost for Nintendo and the consumer.
-To be compatible with Pokémon Bank so the Pokémon can be transferred over into the modern main series games.
So I wouldn't get your hopes up high as it's very likely that the Pokémon games will be omitted in the listing.
I think Game Boy Classic would include Game Boy Color as Nintendo sees them as one generation. Form factor wise they are also very similar, so it makes total sense to include both. I could even see them release it in multiple colors. Backlight for the screen as well as a charger are both necessary, of course.
When it comes to the games, here are some ideas:
Donkey Kong '94
Dragon Warrior 3
Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters
Kirby's Dream Land 1 and 2
Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening + Oracle of Seasons/Ages
Mega Man V
Metal Gear: Ghost Babel
Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
Super Mario Land 1 and 2
Wario Land 1, 2 and 3
(I made this list a while ago.)
