TheA500 Mini

If you bought one of TheA500 mini Amiga revival systems on Amazon, it might be worth checking your inbox.

The retail giant has informed preorder buyers that the console will be shipping 10 days earlier than planned. The April 5th release date has been brought forward to March 26th, 2022.

Emails from Amazon read:


We have received new release date information related to the order you placed on August 10 2021.

The items listed below will actually be dispatched sooner than we had originally expected based on the new release date:

“The A500 Mini (Electronic Games)”
Previous estimated arrival date: April 05 2022
New estimated arrival date: March 26 2022

This is exciting news for anyone who has ordered TheA500 mini. While it’s not immediately clear why the relase date has been moved forward, certainly makes a change these days. After two years of supply chain issues and chip shortages, this feels like things are finally getting back to normal.

And what could be more normal than playing a device based on a 37 year old computer system…?

TheA500 mini emulates Amiga 500, Amiga 600, and Amiga 1200 systems and includes 25 games, including Alien Breed 3D, Another World, ATR: All terrain Racing, Battle Chess, Cadaver, Kick Off 2, Pinball Dreams, Simon the Sorcerer, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, The Chaos Engine, Worms: The Director’s Cut, and Zool: Ninja Of The ”Nth” Dimension. 

Additional ROMs can be added using a USB stick, and a USB keyboard can be connected if necessary.

If you haven’t already ordered your TheA500 mini device, it remains available for preorder at £119.99 on Amazon.
