Coleco has just announced that they will be releasing the Retro VGS under the name of the Coleco Chameleon. This will be their first console in 20 years.
To those uninformed, the Retro Video Game System is a modern take on a classic game console that accurately plays video games from the past as well as brand new video games in the 8, 16 and 32 bit format.
This comes as a surprise to most as the Retro VGS has been operating at full speed to deliver a successful console and revolutionize the modern/retro video game market. Coleco putting their name on it should help out immensely as they’ll have more buying power and more industry connections to ensure that the console isn’t just another Kickstarter pipe dream.
If the console looks familiar, that’s because it is. Retro Video Game system uses the shell design of the ill-fated Atari Jaguar and also the cartridge design.
