Retro Games hints at the return of the cult Amiga 500 computer on the official Facebook page. Presumably this is a version with preinstalled games.
Anyone who was already a gamer in the 1980s probably knows him: the Amiga 500. Back then it was the play equipment in general. And it looks like the computer is about to make its comeback.
A cult computer could come back
In 1987, the Amiga succeeded the aging C64. The computer offered significantly better performance and graphics. At around 1,000 D-Marks, the purchase was not so cheap at the time, but players could access a wide range of excellent titles. These included classics such as:
- Altered Beast
- Another world
- Dungeon Master
- Shadow of the Beast
- Turrican 2
- Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
and many more.
Retro Games, which have already launched replicas of the C64 and Vic 20 with preinstalled games, have published a teaser image on Facebook. This shows the actually unmistakable silhouette of the Amiga 500. When the computer will come on the market and at what price is currently not known. In terms of price, the device could be the same as that of the C64, which cost 120 euros.
It is also unclear with which pre-installed games the computer appears. The choice of the Amiga 500 is huge and it won't be easy to pick the best ones. It will be just as exciting to find out whether it is a mini version of the Amiga 500 or a full-size version.
What is certain, however, is that the device will only go on sale in the coming year. An exact date has not yet been given. A new edition of the Amiga 500 is certainly very interesting.
