C64 Mini: tiny Commodore 64 gets launch date

Commodore 64, c64 mini

We’ve seen diminutive NES and SNES consoles and a rejigged Sega Mega Drive, but now it’s the Commodore 64’s turn. Yep, the C64 Mini is set for a 29 March launch date.

Featuring an HDMI port, up to 720p support, 64 “fully licensed” classic games and a retro-style joystick, the C64 Mini comes in at €80. Interestingly, the machine also comes with two USB ports, so you can plug in a USB keyboard (the machine’s keyboard keys don’t work) and dabble with C64 BASIC.
