Though we don’t know what these classic consoles could be, many assume that the code-names could be pointing toward the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo Gameboy devices. This is based on various rumors that spread sometime last year about Nintendo working on an Nintendo 64 classic system.

Yet, Kotaku’s interview with Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, declared that Nintendo hasn’t started and isn’t interested in making an Nintendo 64 Classic system. To view the full-interview, click here.

Since Nintendo’s been providing new NES titles to the online service once-a-month, some don’t expect Nintendo to drop news about the subscription service receiving SNES titles. Are these pre-planned SNES titles being saved for a huge reveal in a possible Nintendo Direct? Maybe, maybe not.

Regardless, we’ll keep you updated when Nintendo decides to reveal/release these titles for their current Nintendo Switch online service.

What do you think about this news? When do you expect Nintendo to release these hidden twenty-two SNES games for the Nintendo Switch Online Service? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter, and follow us for more Nintendo news, and everything gaming too.
