Nintendo's nostalgia-fuelled Super NES Classic has been out for less than two weeks, but it's already been hacked to add more games and custom backgrounds.

That said, Nintendo did prove it can go tiny and functional with its 2005 Game Boy Micro so if the Game Boy Classic Mini were to emerge, we imagine it'd be something similar to the miniature Game Boy Advance. You can see the patent below, via a Japanese trademark Twitter bot. Why file this trademark now if not to prepare for a new system?

If Nintendo does take the Classic Edition route with the Game Boy, hopefully it doesn't miniaturize it like it did with other consoles. Could Nintendo be plotting more, though? There were 1,049 games released for the handheld, so Nintendo shouldn't have any trouble choosing a couple of dozen. Then again, the hardest part would really be getting your hands on one of the classic consoles since Nintendo can't seem to manufacture enough to cover demand for them (which is clearly done on purpose).

A trademark citing does not always mean a real product, but a fact that can't be denied is Nintendo's Classic Edition brand has enjoyed a massive success.

Saudi Arabia trimmed crude supplies to its biggest buyers in Asia, sources told Reuters, a sign it is meeting its cut commitment. Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation , he said, are leading the initiative to bring in more producers.

Even though a Classic Mini Game Boy is not completely out of question, there are some limitations to it.

The trademark was filed on September 15, and included this Game Boy image.

Nevertheless, if Nintendo does not come with any such device, you can always play Game Boy cartridges using Hyperkin's Android phone add-on SmartBoy.

As the new SNES Classic Edition continues to sell out almost instantaneously every time more units appears in stores or online, it seems like a no-brainer that Nintendo will continue to produce other retro consoles in the future.
