The C64 Mini will be hitting retail stores in North America on October 9, 2018.
Retro Games Ltd. and Solutions 2 GO recently announced that their highly anticipated C64 Mini will be out this October — Based on the best-selling computer of 1982, the C64 Mini will ship with 64 preloaded classics. Thanks to the inclusion of the faithfully recreated C64 Joysticks, the experience of playing games on the C64 Mini will be as close as possible to the original hardware, of course, with the added benefits and conveniences of HDMI out, offering players with a crisp 720p image at 60hz.
Additionally, the C64 Mini will feature two USB ports, giving players options for a second controller or the C64 keyboard, perfect for those comfortable with the BASIC programming language.
Finally, for the first time ever, The C64 Mini will allow players to actually save their games, something that was not possible back in the 80s.
“We are delighted to be able to bring back some of the most loved retro games ever, on one of the most successful formats of all time”, said Paul Andrews, Retro Games’ Managing Director. “The North American release of THEC64® mini is a reimagining of the classic C64 computer and one of a series of products we have on the way.”
The C64 Mini will be available October 9, 2018 in North American markets.
