For months now there has been talk on whether or not Nintendo will ever release an N64 Classic game console sometime in the future. Seeing how successful both the NES along with SNES Classic was between 2016-2018 many believed that the N64 Classic should become a reality especially since the PS1 Classic is expected to be released by Sony this upcoming month in December 2018. But it has been recently announced by the President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime that the M64 Classic will not be happening soon especially since retro-based consoles are considered to be limited time opportunities in the eyes of the company. While games such as Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64 and GoldenEye 007 are games to die for on the N64 Classic it seems like the Nintendo is focusing more on the success of the Switch console along with titles that are and will be featured on that game system.
The fact, that Nintendo will not be releasing a N64 Classic anytime soon is somewhat of a downer. But its always possible that classic N64 titles could always appear on the Nintendo eShop for the Switch console. However, there has been no talk as of late of Nintendo bringing classics like Ocarina of Time to the Switch eShop so it seems unlikely that it will happen anytime soon.
