Commodore 64 Mini Announced, Launching Early 2018”

Retro lovers are going to rejoice when they'll get their hands on the Commodore 64 mini. "THEC64® mini is a reimagining of the classic C64 computer and the first in a planned series of products on the way".

The Commodore 64 Mini is 50 percent smaller than the original. In early 2018 under the name "C64 Mini" the replica unit will be ready and released and it will hold 64 classic Commodore 64 games as well as the ability to program it in Basic. As well as the joystick, it comes with a HDMI cable and USB charging cable: if you want to plug it into the mains, you'll have to pick up a USB AC adapter. Not sure if it's as durable as the original one.

Ever since Nintendo re-released the NES past year in the form of a mini version which included a number of games, the business of mini consoles has boomed.

"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. You will be able to connect a USB keyboard to the device as well as there will be firmware updates through a USB stick. That offers basic commands and programming within the console.

The built in games on The C64 Mini a pretty good line-up, with classics such as Armalyte, Impossible Mission, Monty On The Run, Paradroid, Spindizzy, and Uridium. The C64 was also big in America, and while the games announced so far are mostly British there are some American titles in there too.

The C64 Mini will be distributed by Koch Media, so direct any wholesale enquiries there. The full list of confirmed games can be found here.

The C64 Mini is scheduled to be out in "early 2018" and will retail for £69.99/$69.99/€79.99.
