Amiga gets a mini console with the A500 Mini

Retro game offering launches early next year with 25 games included and the ability to load more

The Amiga 500 is the latest in-line system for mini-console treatment, as Retro Games announced today the A500 Mini.

The A500 Mini, which will launch early next year for $ 140, includes 25 licensed Amiga games, including Another World, Simon the Sorcerer, and Worms: Director’s Cut, as well as the ability for users to upload their own games from Friend using a USB stick.

The A500 Mini

The A500 Mini comes with a two-button mouse and a control panel. Retro Games did not specify whether the system keyboard is functional, but the A500 Mini will have an on-screen virtual keyboard, as well as USB support for real keyboards.

The system will also support save states, as well as visual options like a filter to replicate the look of a CRT monitor.

This isn’t Retro Games’ first dive into the mini-console market. The company previously released the mid-size C64 Mini Commodore 64 with an ornamental keyboard, as well as full-size reproductions with functional keyboards for the C64 and Vic 20.
