Commodore 64 Mini Slated for Release in 2018

Retro Games and Koch Media have teamed up together to announce the revival of the Commodore 64 in the form of the C64 Mini, a miniature-scaled mini-console created to give gamers a taste of some retro gaming from the early 1980s. Brutal Deluxe, Paradroid and Impossible Mission. The Commodore 64 is being re-released as a miniature console in the style of the NES and SNES Classic Editions.

Joining the previously released Nintendo NES and SNES is the Commodore64, in the guise of the C64 Mini. It's just half the size of the original hardware, but boasts two USB ports for peripherals, with one joystick being included in the package, and is pre-loaded with more than 35 classic games. To further pull at those nostalgic heart strings, one team decided that the world needed a Commodore 64 mini and thanks to their crowdfunding efforts, it's what the world will get. The console can be connected to a display using HDMI.

So what better time than now to introduce a wee little version of 1982's beloved Commodore 64? Like the original Commodore 64, the C64 Mini is also a fully working computer, and still runs BASIC, allowing you to write and save your own programs and games without the need for a disk or cassette drive.
