The Intellivision Amico Has Been Pushed To Autumn 2021

Intellivision broke the news this morning that they have pushed back the release of the Amico, their next console, into the Fall of 2021. The short explanation given by the company was that "in order to guarantee a successful market launch of the unique family entertainment system, this decision was inevitable due to the global pandemic and additional logistical reasons." You can check out a more in-depth video about the push back down below, featuring several members of the team explaining what's going on, but for now, it looks like you can still pre-order the console through their website and GameStop.

Isn't it true that your fondest memories of playing video games are when you played together in the same room with a group of people? Much has changed in gaming since Intellivision began, with games becoming more isolating, complicated, and competitive. Using technology, creativity, and unrivaled passion, our team is on a mission to bring family and friends together again. When designing Amico, we had a vision – make gaming accessible again. Our team has packed an incredible amount of features into a simple and affordable package. Luckily, we didn't have to start from scratch — the original Intellivision system had many great features that served as inspiration for Amico. Modern technology, updated ergonomics, and a modern personality make for an entertainment system like no other.

The Amico controller is designed for functionality and simplicity — with a familiar touchscreen, disc, and motion controls, anyone can join in on the fun. Simply place the controllers in the console and Amico takes care of the charging. This feature also doubles as a simple way of storing the controllers to keep things tidy. Amico uses unique lighting that not only makes for a fun and memorable gaming experience, but also helps guide players in an interactive way.
