Following the trend of mini console re-releases, such as the wildly popular NES and SNES minis, Retro Games Limited has revealed it is releasing a miniature version of the Commodore 64 in 2018. Like the recent SNES mini, the C64 mini is a micro version of the 80’s console pre-loaded with a library of games for plug-and-play entertainment.
The console features HDMI output, two USB ports, supports save states, and you can also plug a keyboard into the system and use it as a home computer if you feel so inclined. The Commodore 64 will run BASIC, which will allow you to write and save your own programs and games without the need for a disk or cassette drive. As well as the mini, Retro Games Limited have announced that the full size version of the Commodore 64 will also release sometime in 2018.
A full list of games included in the C64 Mini can be found on the company’s website here, including classics such as Chip’s Challenge, Impossible Mission, and California Games.
