Retro Games announces TheA500 – The Amiga mini console is coming!

Teased last year, the Amiga 500 mini-console has been finally confirmed for early 2022. The new product from Retro Games Ltd, the creator of TheC64 is not surprisingly called TheA500.

The new console will come with a controller, a real mouse but the keyboard is not functional (as if one could type on those tiny keys!) and a USB port to connect an external keyboard.

Like its predecessor, will be bundled with 25 licensed games. So far, 12 games are confirmed:

  • Alien Breed 3D
  • Another World
  • ATR: All Terrain Racing
  • Battle Chess
  • Cadaver
  • Kick Off 2
  • Pinball Dreams
  • Simon The Sorcerer
  • Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe
  • The Chaos Engine
  • Worms: The Director’s Cut
  • Zool: Ninja Of The Nth Dimension

Although it is primarily based on the A500, the new console will also support the A1200 out-of-the-box, save and resume for games at any time (finally you will be able to finish some of them!) and many other functions.

The price of US$ 139 is very attractive and will likely mean that it is gonna be hard to buy one during the first months after the launch.
