There is one “high profile” console that has been in development for quite some time that will miss its 2020 Holiday launch. It’s not the Xbox Series X or the PlayStation 5 however, but rather the Intellivision Amico.
Okay, so maybe this is not an earth shattering delay for core gamers, but I’m sure there were folks who were pining for this thing.
Intellivision CEO, Tommy Tallarico (so that’s what Tommy’s been up to) has announced the delay during a livestream intended to show off the consoles initial library and gameplay.
The delay is due to challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic, which has impacted pretty much everything imaginable globally. This is a real shame actually, as this is a cool looking device with a library of “wholesome” games for the whole family. I think it’s safe say that Mortal Kombat 11 will not be ported to this thing.
The plan is to now release a Founder’s Edition to initial backers on April 3, 2021, followed by a full launch a little later on April 15, 2021.
