Top 5 Nintendo 64 Classic features we wantNintendo just announced the SNES Classic, which we all know means a mini Nintendo 64 is just around the corner. Here's what Nintendo needs to do to make it better than the rest of its reissues.
These are the top five features we want in the Nintendo 64 Classic. That's right. Nintendo just announced a super NES Classic, so we're jumping ahead to the inevitable sequel and no, Nintendo has not officially announced such a device yet. At #5, cartridge support. Okay, I know what you're thinking. Part of this whole Classic reissue thing is how tiny the consoles are. That's fine, but I'm pretty sure you can sneak in cartridge support. Take a look at the Sega Genesis Flashback coming out later this year. 85 preloaded games, plus you guessed it, cartridge support. ANd number 4, expandability. All right, maybe Nintendo's fixing that small form factor, how about SD card support? Downloadable games, maybe, just give us something that lets us get even more games on the Nintendo 64 Classic than whatever's preloaded. and number 3 wireless controllers the NES classic shipped with one wired controller the SNES classic will come with two wired controllers and the Nintendo 64 had 4 controller ports so how about 4 wired Controllers. No, just no, Nintendo. Just go with wireless controllers in the box. And number two, better menu access. On the NES classic if you want to switch games you've got to go to the console to access the menu. That made plenty of sense when you were physically swapping out cartridges on the original Nintendo. However, how about adding a way to head back to the menu screen without having to physically go over to the console. And number one, availability. The NES Classic was in short supply when it arrived. Pre-orders for the SNES Classic point to big demand already. Nintendo said it will make more SNES classic units than it did NES classic so should Nintendo make an Nintendo 64 classic be really nice if it was available without needing to pay a premium to a resaler Nintendo has a really good handle on nostalgia tech. Though I'd imagine the reissued consoles will end by the time we get to the Wii U classic or maybe the company will just skip that one entirely. Anyway, for more top five, check out top5.cnet.com.
