I’ve been paying attention to the upcoming Intellivision Amico over the last few months, to learn more about it. Earthworm Jim 4 is going to be developed for the Intellivision Amico sometime in the future. The actual console itself is scheduled to release in October of this year. (Please note that date may change. At the time of writing this, that was a predicted release date.)
I really like their family friendly vibe, and it has some nice looking games being made for it’s launch line-up. (I’m not being paid to write this).
The Amico really reminded me what it was like to just be a kid again, playing games with your siblings and parents. That’s an experience that carries weight to me now looking back – I think that’s a very cool thing about it.
“Amico” also means “friend” in Italian, which explains it’s pleasant soft design and cute animated logo. I think it looks really cute.
They showed the Intellivision Amico to people at the The National Video Game Museum in Frisco, Texas recently, and had some really good feedback. You can find out more about it at their Intellivision Amico YouTube Channel, and official Intellivison Entertainment site.
