Intellivision Entertainment Europe has announced the first release of its physical games products – the “Limited Collector’s Edition” box sets – for the highly anticipated Amico video game console. There is no official release date for the Amico yet, as the original date in October 2021 had to be postponed again.

The box sets contain a 3D lenticular card, a collector’s coin and an RFID card, which enables the game to be digitally downloaded after the title has been published. The games are NFTs and part of a blockchain, which makes them even more desirable. All “Collector’s Edition” packs are also fully transferable. The “Collector’s Edition” box sets, which are produced in limited quantities, are available from EUR 79.99 and are now available and ready for shipping in the USA, Canada and Europe.

Intellivision offers three different box sets:

“Our goal was to bring the best of traditional physical media and the
Combining the advantages of digital media into something unique, ”explains
Intellivision CEO Tommy Tallarico. “I am confident that collectors will do a great deal
Will enjoy it! “

Intellivision Entertainment Europe GmbH, based in Nuremberg, played a central role in this. All components of the box sets, designed in California, were made in Europe. The coins from Nuremberg, the RFID cards encoded in Bamberg and the 3D cards produced in Hessisch-Lichtenau were packaged in Poland together with a Digipak packaging variant specially developed for Intellivision. In addition, Dynablaster, Rigid Force Redux Enhanced, Moon Patrol, Finnigan Fox, Biplanes and Brain Duel were six of the eight physical launch titles developed in Germany.

Hans Ippisch, President of Intellivision Entertainment Europe, acted as executive producer for these games and worked with local studios, which he had been looking for specifically for their development since the beginning of 2019. “Without the fantastic and courageous support from FFF Bayern, the state of Bavaria and the city of Nuremberg, neither the European branch in Nuremberg would have been founded nor a single launch title for the Amico console would have been developed,” reveals Hans Ippisch. “The promotion of the Amico launch package (including Moon Patrol) by FFF Bayern was clearly the initial spark for the development of now more than 20 games, the establishment of the production of all physical media and the localization of all products worldwide by the European branch in Nuremberg, which has meanwhile invested a well-established seven-digit amount in EUR in Germany and especially in Bavaria.

As a result, the company also received funding from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure for the development of the titles Biplanes and SNAFOO. Further titles and the next series of physical products are already in the pre-production phase.
