    • The classic/mini throwback video game console craze continues, with Konami joining the fray, with their soon to be released TurboGrafx-16 Mini. After claiming that the TG-16 Mini would include 50 classic titles from both the Japanese PC Engine and western TurboGrafx-16 libraries, Konami surprised fans by further revealing another seven bonus games, bringing the total count to 57. We also have confirmation that M2, known for their work on recent ports of classic Sega Genesis games, is on board with the project, meaning the games will likely be emulated in a reliable manner. The recently announced games are as follows:
      • Seirei Senshi Spriggan
      • Spriggan Mark 2
      • Dragon Spirit
      • Galaga '88
      • The Genji and the Heike Clans
      • The Legend of Valkyrie
      • Splatterhouse

      The TurboGrafx-16 Mini is slated for a March 19, 2020 launch, and will be sold exclusively through Amazon. Pre-orders are now open, with the system retailing for $99.99. It should be noted that more than half of the games from the lineup are in Japanese, and will not be translated/localized.

    Konami has announced a mini version of the TurboGrafx-16, more than 30 years after the console first launched in Japan.
    The TurboGrafx-16 Mini follows on from similar hardware released by Nintendo and Sony, though in this case the original hardware is unquestionably more niche.
    Konami did not offer a release date, or even a release window, but the Japanese company said that the new version will, "fit in the palm of your hand and feature a full-sized controller."


    Six games have been announced for the TurboGrafx-16 Mini: R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer, and Alien Crush. More will be announced in the near future.
    Konami intends to launch the hardware in North America, Japan, and "certain regions of Europe," and it will have a different design and name in each territory; TurboGrafx-16 Mini in North America, PC Engine Core Grafx Mini in Europe, and PC Engine Mini in Japan.
    The TurboGrafx-16 console first launched in Japan in 1987, before rolling out to North America and Europe from 1989.

    Capcom is getting into the plug-and-play retro craze. But where the NES Classic, PlayStation Classic, and Sega Gensis Mini have gone small, Capcom is going big.
    The publisher today announced the Capcom Home Arcade, a plug-and-play system with two full-size arcade joystick and button set-ups on a panel shaped like the company's logo. The Home Arcade features Sanwa joystick and buttons, and Capcom's European store front is current accepting preorders with a €229.99 price tag and an October 25 release date. (North American release details will be announced later.) It will be manufactured by Koch Media under license from Capcom.


    As for the games, the Home Arcade will include 16 titles from the company's CPS1 and CPS2 arcade hardware offerings, running on the FB Alpha arcade and console emulator. While the lineup includes some of the company staples like Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting and Final Fight, it also features a number of deeper cuts like Capcom Sports Club, Mega Man: The Power Battle, and Armored Warriors. Perhaps most interesting among the offerings is Alien vs. Predator, the officially licensed 1994 arcade beat-'em-up that has never previously seen a home adaptation or re-release.
    Capcom made no mention of being able to add more games to the system later on, but it does have WiFi that the company said will be used to connect to global high-score leaderboards.

    Intellivision Entertainment has this week announced the Intellivision Amico, inspired by the original 1979 console.
    Joining Sony, Sega, and Nintendo in the retro hardware space, Intellivision Entertainment has reclaimed the formerly defunct brand in order to produce a modernised version of the classic console.
    The Amico intends to capture the family market, offering a range of re-imagined and remade retro console games from Intellivision, Atari, and Imagic.
    It will also include a host of classic titles such as Toejam and Earl, Miner 2049er, and Tropical Angel, along with brand new games, all exclusive to the Amico.
    Priced between $149 and $179, the console is slated for release on October 10, 2020; it will only feature games that are rated E for Everyone, or E10+ and will not feature any "costly DLC" or in-app purchases.

    Speaking over the weekend at Portland Retro Gaming Expo, Intellivision president Tommy Tallarico stressed the company's focus on accessibility and affordability.
    "Most every game being made for the home consoles these days is created with only the hardcore gamer in mind," he said.
    "We see a world where everyone is interested in playing at home and with friends... Our goal was to create a console that both gamers and non-gamers are able to have fun with and play together.

      “We are happy with the progress we are making on Atari VCS and thrilled that fans finally have a chance to reserve the first ones,” said Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices. “Atari VCS will give fans a lot of freedom to game, stream, connect and customize their experience like never before. The entire Atari team is working hard to deliver this unique platform and can't wait for fans to get their hands on it. We’ll have exciting reveals and announcements between now and then so stay tuned!”
      Additionally, the Atari VCS platform will support 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content, onboard and expandable cloud storage options, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0 support. Moreover the proprietary Atari VCS User Interface that the device packs integrates optional voice control and a web browser for full access to the internet.

      A new Atari VCS launch video accompanied the announcement: (see the video below)

      And what about games? Every Atari VCS comes with the Atari Vault collection of more than 100 classics like Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Missile Command, Gravitar and Yars’ Revenge. (see the video below)

      And that's as much as we know for now but the team behind the Atari VCS previously said that "a growing list of games, especially a full range of popular modern titles, will be announced at later dates". Nevertheless, the Indiegogo campaign page is touting the device as a "gaming and home entertainment streaming device with open platform for creativity and customization". This might entice tinkerers as the platform runs on Linux and might evolve into a community investing in independent software development for the console.

      However this revival of the Atari brand in the console market does not come cheap. The less pricey option is the Atari VCS Onyx priced at $199 USD (without controllers), and that for a limited time. Other options include extra controllers or even the $299 USD Indiegogo-exclusive Atari VCS Day One Collector’s Edition, also available only for a limited time. Nevertheless, there seem to be a lot of people interested in the product as its campaign has raised 1819% of its initial goal (over $1.8 million) at the time of writing, with a month left before the backing ends.
      Click to expand...
      The Atari VCS has an expected delivery date of July 2019. But the big question is, do you like the 'specs.' posted above? And if so, will you pre-order one, or what until next year?

    Atari® — One of the world's most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — today announces that pre-sales of its new Atari VCS™ hardware platform will start May 30, 2018. The pre-sale is exclusive to Indiegogo and features the time-limited Atari VCS Collector's Edition featuring the special retro-inspired wood-front. In addition to the Collector's Edition, fans will have the option to pre-order the Atari VCS Onyx, a sleek black version. Early-bird Atari VCS packages will be offered, including the Onyx starting at $199 USD for a limited period of time. Other packages will include the Classic Joystick and Modern Controller. Initial Atari VCS shipments are planned for Spring 2019. Fans who have signed up for "insider" email alerts at AtariVCS.com before May 24, 2018 will be eligible for special purchase incentives during the pre-sale.

    The VCS is a completely new Atari connected device, designed in California by Atari. The company has partnered with AMD who provides the Atari VCS custom processor with Radeon Graphics Technology. The Atari VCS platform will offer support for 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content, onboard and expandable storage options, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0 support. A complete list of Atari VCS product specs will be posted with the pre-sale.

    The updated Classic Joystick and new Modern Controller for the Atari VCS are being developed in partnership with leading video game peripherals maker Power A. Both items will be available in select packages and as standalone purchases.

As an homage to the past, Atari VCS covers the classics with the included Atari Vault of more than 100 classic games, including all-time arcade and home entertainment favorites like Asteroids®, Centipede®, Breakout®, Missile Command®, Gravitar® and Yars' Revenge®; a growing list of games, especially a full range of popular modern titles, will be announced at later dates.

    "We continue moving forward on the Atari VCS project and are excited to see this pre-sale kickoff and to share more updates with our fans as we look toward the first shipments," notes Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices. "We are building outstanding teams and forging alliances that will make this product great and truly worthy of the Atari VCS name. Expert hardware partners are helping make this project possible and we couldn't be more pleased with their contributions."

    Atari appreciates the community's intense curiosity about VCS games and content, hardware specifications, production timelines and other key information, and is confident that it is putting the right pieces in place for a successful product and launch.
