A Mini Commodore 64 System Is Coming

Following in the wake of last year’s Mini-NES and the just released Mini-SNES, Retro Games has announced plans to launch a mini version of the early gaming system Commodore 64.

Dubbed ‘The C64 Mini,’ it will be available in early 2018, with a price point of $70. Half the size of the 1982 original, it comes with a wired joystick, a charging cable and will connect to your TV via an HDMI port. Filtering options such as CRT, pixel perfect and scanline emulation will be available.

The machine will come with 64 preinstalled licensed games including: AlleyKat, Anarchy, Armalyte: Competition Edition, Avenger, Battle Valley, Bounder, California Games, Chip’s Challenge, Confuzion, Cosmic Causeway: Trailblazer II, Creatures, Cyberdyne Warrior, Cybernoid II: The Revenge, Cybernoid: The Fighting Machine, Deflektor, Everyone’s A Wally, Firelord, Gribbly’s Day Out, Hawkeye, Heartland, Herobotix, Highway Encounter, Hunter’s Moon, Hysteria, Impossible Mission, Impossible Mission II, Insects In Space, Mega-Apocalypse, Mission A.D, Monty Mole, Monty on the Run, Nebulus, Netherworld, Nobby the Aardvark, Nodes Of Yesod, Paradroid, Pitstop II, Rana Rama, Robin Of The Wood, Rubicon, Skate Crazy, Skool Daze, Slayer, Snare, Speedball, Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe, Spindizzy, Star Paws, Steel, Stormlord, Street Sports Baseball, Summer Games II, Super Cycle, Temple of Apshai Trilogy, The Arc Of Yesod, Thing Bounces Back, Thing on a Spring, Trailblazer, Uchi Mata, Uridium, Who Dares Wins II, Winter Games, World Games, and Zynaps.

You can use any standard PC USB keyboard to interface with it, but you may want to wait as a full-sized version with a working keyboard is planned for late 2018.
