Though we wouldn't object to a Game Boy Classic Mini at all, there are some limitations to it. It's been tweeted out by a Japanese trademark bot.

According to reports, the hack was discovered by programmer Alexey Avdyukhin, who released a program that would allow users to plug their SNES Classic Mini to their computers and download additional games, as well as software packages.

A Twitter account that tracks the Japanese trademarks spotted the trademark late last week. Some of the trademarks could be to protect the "Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy" brand or they could simply be to protect the Game Boy brand.

If you do manage to get your hands on one, feel free to comment below and let us know about your experiences with the process.

The rapidly-developing SNES Classic hacking scene has already gotten to the point where owners of the system can add new stuff relatively easily.

Looking for something a little more universal? DarkGiygas created this awesome border, which mimics original Super Nintendo box art. The original Game Boy with large, thick casing and the neon green display was released in 1989, and was the first truly portable gaming consoles. In 2005, the Japanese firm came up with a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance, dubbed as the Game Boy Micro. In five months before going out of stock due to heavy demand, the NES Classic sold 2.3 million units, notes Fortune.

Originally filed on September 15, the posting flew under the radar until this week. The entire collection is definitely worth your time if you're into Nintendo history and just what goes into making a game. That move seems even more likely as the 30th anniversary of the first Game Boy will happen in 2019.
