The Retro Games company has left us really curious news by proposing to bring back one of the most classic machines that exist, because it has announced that, after 40 years, will bring back to life the VIC-20, whose distribution will be handled by Koch Media.
This new version of this mythical computer was originally launched in 1981 and at that time its success was evident because it was the first home computer that managed to exceed one million units sold. So, soon anyone who has not tried it with their own hands will be able to see what made it special a few decades ago.
This reinvention of the VIC-20 will return to its original size, with a keyboard and joystick that you can connect to one of the four USB ports that have been included and also to televisions through an HDMI port. Thanks to this you will be able to access several different modes, including one that will allow you to run your VIC-20 BASIC and C64 BASIC programs.
The Commodore 64 was (and still is) a very popular computer for all of us who are already of a certain age. For those of us who, in the 80’s, never got completely used to the fact that the games came on cassette and we had to wait 15 or 20 minutes for them to load. I mean, as soon as we discovered cartridges in systems like MSX, the sky opened up for us.
We have been testing the new THE C64 Mini, which as its name suggests is the miniature version of the Commodore 64.
Along with all this you can also enjoy a total of 64 pre-installed games with different types of filters. Among some of the titles it will host are Arcadia, Paradroid, Snake, Boulder Dash, Mega Vault and many others that are shown in the presentation trailer of this machine and that you have just below. The VIC-20 will be a variant of THEC64 and is scheduled to go on sale in all stores on October 23rd at a price of 119.99 euros, so you can save a little if you want to relive old times in a few months.
