Commodore 64 is Hopping onto the Mini Console Nostalgia Train

Not to be outdone by last year’s NES Classic Edition, this year’s current hotness the SNES Classic Edition, as well as entries for the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600, a mini Commodore 64 is in the works from Retro Games.

The C64 Mini will be available in early 2018, with a price point of $70. The original Commodore 64 was launched in 1982.

Like the NES and SNES Classic Editions, the C64 Mini will come preinstalled with 64 (see what they did there) games. A full list of the games can be viewed at their website.

The console will ship with a wired joystick, a charging cable, and will connect to your TV via an HDMI.

Just like the NES/SNES Classic Editions, the C64 Mini will include filtering options such as CRT, pixel perfect and scanline emulation.

And not to be outdone by the competition a full-sized version of the C64 is planned for late 2018, because…. I’m sure they will provide a logical reason.
