Boutique gaming hardware maker Retro Games has announced the Amiga 500 Mini, with a release window set for sometime in early 2022.
The Amiga 500 Mini is priced at $140 or £119.99 for you britbong readers out there, and includes 25 licensed Amiga games like Another World, Simon the Sorcerer, and Worms: Director’s Cut – alongside the ability to naturally sideload your own Amiga games using a USB dongle.
Here’s another look at the mini console and its included controller, as well as the original style two-button mouse:
The Amiga 500 Mini will also support visual filters like one that replicates the look and feel of a CRT display, as well as the ability to create save states for your favorite games. Their previous offering, the Commodore 64 Mini, came as an also miniature unit with a full keyboard.
While the original consoles had a full-sized keyboard, the mini versions have an obviously miniature keyboard – so if you have big hotdog fingers you can always plug in an external USB keyboard as well. The Amiga 500 Mini also supports standard HDMI for its video output.
Here’s a new video for the Amiga 500 Mini:
