Intellivision, the video game maker that didn't survive the '80s, is back and ready to build something new on top of gaming nostalgia. After teasing the idea earlier this year, the company has announced plans for a new console called the Amico -- one part retro console and one part family-friendly modern gaming system. Intellivision plans to release it with a mix of classic titles and new originals in 2020.
The Amico shares some similarities with the standard retro console release. It will supposedly play a slew of classic titles that '80s babies might remember playing through on their living room TV. Intellivision titles like Astrosmash, SNAFU and Utopia are all in line to get new life on the Amico, as are a number of industry classics like Pong, Centipede and Super Burgertime. The company is promising updated graphics, new levels, and multiplayer modes for many of the throwbacks.
