A Classic Edition Of N64 Is Approaching

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

A few years ago, Nintendo released their NES Classic, bringing back many of our classic favorites from the original Nintendo console. It became sold out within the blink of an eye.  Then last year, SNES Classic thankfully decided to bring back the Super Nintendo, allowing us to play Donkey Kong Country and Yoshi’s Island all over again. It was amazing, and now we want more.

In July of 2017, rumors went around that Nintendo may very well be creating a N64 Classic Edition.  Since then, we’ve all impatiently waited for months upon months. Although we’ve got our SNES Classics, we’re all anxiously waiting about what could possibly be coming, especially since we all known that N64 was the all time best console ever.

So while nothing is confirmed for sure, the rumors have returned with new information.  Nintendo has filed for trademark applications on the N64, which means things are going in the right direction. However, it most likely won’t look like the traditional device, it will probably be like the SNES, where it comes pre-loaded with all of the best games.

Our fingers are crossed that it will come out sooner than later and that it will include Super Mario 64,  Mario Kart 64,  Mario Party, Super Smash Bros,  Banjo Kazooie, Zelda,  Star, Diddy Kong Racing and Donkey Kong 64 (at the very least).
