Edition will return to stores on June 29! This system and the Edition system are expected to be available through the end of the year.

For many consumers, the adored Nintendo 64 Mini remains a highly anticipated retro favourite.

As previously reported, Nintendo has confirmed it’s not launching ‘Virtual Console’ for the Switch.

Coupled with its recent announcement, the news suggests Nintendo has several strategies – rather than one streamlined approach – to release retro games.

Speaking to Kotaku USa Nintendo spokesperson affirmed:

“There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems”

“There are a variety of ways in which classic games from Nintendo and other publishers are made available on Nintendo Switch, such as through Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online, Nintendo eShop or as packaged collections”.
