New Gaming Console Previewed Intellivision Amico

™™

It won’t be until 10/10/2020 till we can get a real good look at the Intellivision® Amico™ Console. The Gaming Console is set to focus on the casual fun gamer providing titles which are family friendly and rated “E for Everyone” or “E10+”.

The Company plans to only have game titles which would run the average $2.99 to $7.99 and be available through Downloadable content. They also plan on delivering the Amico™ device with several of the Intellivision historical games re-imagined and preloaded

I had an Original Intellivision from Mattel and always had fun with those blocky looking games.  One of the features I liked was the conceptual sketch of the controllers which still had that early Intellivision feeling.

Tommy Tellerico, the President for the new company, Intellivision ®Entertainment shared this Teaser Trailer at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo this past weekend (10/20/2018)

Tommy recalls  “I grew up playing Intellivision with my parents and younger brother,” says Tallarico.  “It was always my favorite system because the games were cutting edge, yet fun and simple to play so our entire family could enjoy them together.  I find those important elements to generally be lacking from our industry with the current modern gaming consoles.  Our goal is to change that by focusing on bringing all age groups and levels of gamers and non-gamers together while introducing new generations of people to the legacy success of the Intellivision® brand.”

– We’ll have to wait a while but may be worth it!

Some of the Classic Titles that have been re-imagined/remade from Intellivision Baseball, Night Stalker™, Skiing, Boxing, Tron Deadly Discs™ to name a handfull. Some Atari Classics also going to be featured which have also be revamped  for the Intellivision Amico™: Pong™, Asteroids™, Centipede™, Tempest™, Adventure™, Missile Command™, Yar’s Revenge™, Breakout™, Lunar Lander™, Night Driver™, Sky Diver™, Warlords™ All Great Titles!!

Keep up on the latest , according to the Intellivision® Entertainment  Website – The first 500,000 people to sign up will get the exclusive opportunity to purchase a special and unique Limited Edition version of the console which will not be made available in stores
