Retro Games and Koch Media have revealed the fully licensed re-imagining of the 80’s bestselling home computer – THEC64 Mini has a release date of March 29th.

THEC64 Mini is half the size of the original C64, and will connect directly to your television and comes with two USB ports for the joystick and a keyboard.  Most gamers will remember fondly when the original was first released in 1982 and dominated the home computer scene throughout the 80s. It’s back 35 years later and better than ever.

You can plug it into any modern TV via its HDMI port, users can play any one of the 64 licensed classic pre-installed games. This includes games from developers like Epyx, Gremlin Graphics, Hewson and The Bitmap Brothers boasting titles such as California Games, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Paradroid and Impossible Mission. Paul Andrews, Retro Games’ Managing Director stated:

We are delighted to bring to retail THEC64 mini and let both original fans of the machine, and all-new generations of games players discover this amazing system, as well as maybe even have a go at programming it for themselves!
