For those who weren't alive in the era of Nintendo & # 39; s iconic NES (or Famicom as it was known in Japan), the recent release of the NES Classic Edition provided perhaps the most authentic way to experience a c onsole ever.
The slim system looks and feels like a real thing – albeit the console itself, is quite small – and was immediately impressed by new NES fans and disinterested first-time fans. It wasn't found for long, but its release shows that the decades-old console is still memorable and desirable.
Perhaps then it makes sense that commission architect Masayuki Uemura believes that fans will still be forced to come out and take the real deal today. We recently had the opportunity to sit down with this guy for a chat – look for a full interview on Nintendo Life soon today – and asked for his thoughts on a new wave of Classic Edition being produced by Nintendo.
He said, "Why are they making it smaller? I think they can still make a standard Famicom and people will still buy it." While the & # 39; Mini & # 39; s plans are nice and functional, it's really hard to argue with Uemura-san – would you happily buy the new NES, SNES, or N64 if Nintendo were still doing it? We certainly will.
In a similar interview, Uemura notes that the first thing he will change about the design of the first Famicom will be the control cables – permanently connected to the machine. This design has made its way to the Famicom Mini, but imagine if Nintendo upgrades the original model. Maybe we can end up with an official Famicom with wireless control?
We'll leave it there, before we end up dreaming of the official N64 new products created by the built-in VR or something. Oh, now we've done it.
