L'Amiga 500 remis au goût du jour

Amiga 500 Mini unveils games and final release date

Announced last August, theAmiga 500 Mini—Miniaturized version of the famous microcomputer — had been very discreet. If we knew that the release of the small machine was scheduled for the beginning of the year 2022, it had since been very discreet … Until yesterday: it is on the official Facebook page of its publisher Retro Games Ltd that the ‘we discover the final release date of the A500 Mini, as well as its complete list of games.

The past is coming soon

It is therefore on March 25 that the A500 Mini of its official name will be available. Priced at € 129.99 with us, the mini-microphone will come with a gamepad whose design is inspired by the famous Amiga CD32 controller, but also with a retro cream white mouse with two buttons in the best taste.

As usual with mini-consoles of the genre, the A500 Mini will allow the use of state backups, but also to switch from a 60hz or 50hz display frequency for the most demanding European retrophiles. A display filter mimicking the appearance of the CRTs of yesteryear will also be there.

Cult toy library

However, do not be fooled by the photos: both even the case of the mini-console reproduces on a very small scale the original keyboard of the 1987 bike, it only has a pure aesthetic function. Retro Games Ltd had already been strongly criticized for this choice when it released its first Commodore 64 mini-console a few years ago… before releasing another model with a functional keyboard.
