Koch Media launches back the C64

A timeless classic celebrates its return in the form of the THEC64 Mini. Koch Media takes over the distribution of the THEC64 Mini developed by Retro Games Ltd. The console, which will be released in the spring of 2018, is a fully licensed miniature version of the best-selling home computer of the 1980s. The THEC64 Mini is only half the size of the original and offers direct connectivity to modern TVs and appears with a true-to-original new joystick that can be easily connected to one of the two USB ports. The THEC64 Mini offers classic gaming enjoyment in just a few easy steps. Released back in 1982, the C64 Home Computer conquered the world and dominated the digital entertainment landscape for much of the 1980s. Millions of units sold today still guarantee a safe place in the heart of the fans of that time. Just in time for the 35th anniversary he is celebrating his return! HDMI port allows players to relive all 64 licensed products on modern devices and experience gaming history. These games include titles by legendary developers such as Epyx, Gremlin Graphics, Hewson and Bitmap Brothers. Titles such as California Games, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Paradroid and Impossible Mission drive C64 fans into the tears of joy in their eyes. Many of the titles supplied with the book can look back on high ratings of the trade press at that time and have lost none of their fascination to this day. From sports to shooter, platformer and puzzle games, the variety makes every retro heart beat faster.

"We are incredibly proud to have the opportunity to bring back some of the best and most beloved retro games from fans to date", says Paul Andrews, Managing Director at Retro Games. "The TheC64 Mini is a replica of the classic C64 era and the first product in a planned series."

As is appropriate for a home computer, the THEC64 MINI can also be equipped with a PC keyboard (USB) and can be used as a classic C64 for entering BASIC commands or programming new games.

It will be available in Europe through Koch Media offices in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
