They really hope you feel nostalgic
This is the first game footage we’re seeing of the Intellivision Amico, the retro name being brought back from the dead by a conglomerate of investors. The company is really banking on its ability to pull the heart strings of Eighties kids, going so far as resurrecting games from the era with updates (Mattel Skiing, Moon Patrol).
The company released the promotional video above to entice potential buyers to pre-order the device, which launches October of this year. It’s worth noting that the games seem to carry that simple, almost Flash-like feel of gaming consoles sold at your local CVS albeit with Intellivision branding.
If anything, it may be worth it as a collector’s item? Who knows. Pre-orders open on the Intellivision site on March 31.
