A new trailer for the revealed and named Intellivision Amico console has been released just a couple days after Tommy Tallarico revealed details about the new system at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.

Tommy Tallarico’s investment in the future of the Intellivision has been an interesting one. Following in the footsteps of companies like Atari and Nintendo which are looking to inject new life into their older libraries, Tallarico and the Intellivision company are looking to give their specific brand of retro gaming a fresh spotlight in a new generation. Following a wealth of details revealed by Tallarico in a keynote at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, a trailer has dropped, revealing a new console - the Intellivision Amico.

The trailer dropped on October 22, 2018 on the official Intellivision YouTube channel and just two days after Tallarico’s Retro Gaming Expo presentation. The trailer begins by going through the immense history of firsts that Intellivision claims during its initial run, including first video game vocalizations and sports licensing in video games. Before finally revealing the new Intellivision Amico and it’s expected features. The trailer can be seen below.


This trailer includes our first major look at the Intellivision Amico console itself, including the controllers that come with the console, featuring positional disks, full-color touchscreens, force feedback, gyroscope and accelerometer technology, and more. Furthermore, many games will have controller options which can be downloaded onto mobile devices for extra controller support and features online leaderboards, multiplayer, and tournament tools.

Beyond that, much of the information presented in the Intellivision Amico trailer confirms details echoed in Tallarico’s keynote. Games will cost $2.99 to $7.99 and not carry paid DLC and the price point of the system will be $149 to $179 to name a few. With so much revealed about the Intellivision Amico, it feels like a much more solid proposition. At the very least, players know more about what they’re getting with this retro-inspired device, and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Amico. Personally, we’re looking forward to some demonstrations down the line.

The Intellivision Amico is slated for release on October 10, 2020. For the latest news and information, be sure to check out Intellivision's official website.
