Nintendo Files New Trademark for Super Famicom Controller

Nintendo has filed a new trademark that has us wondering if they’re planning a SNES classic in the vein of their wildly popular NES classic gaming console.

The new trademark was publicly revealed on December 24th, and it’s for the Super Famicom controller.

While this could be Nintendo simply protecting their legacy hardware and design, you have to admit the timing is a bit convenient after their holiday launch for the NES classic.

Would you throw down for a SNES classic re-release? Sound off in the comments below!
