Intellivision released a Night Stalker gameplay video! I can officially say I am making this remake (the footage is from last year - Expect some evolution). 4 players, co-op and competitive. There is a crazy story that emerges as you play, too. It's fun!


Looks really fun! Does the original game come included as well? Or is it just in the trailer to illustrate the leap in graphics and gameplay?

No it was just to show the difference..the original along with other Intellivision games will be available the following year

Still not sold on the idea. It's nostalgic to see a system hype like this from a classic player in the industry (like Atari coming back with a new system in the 90s, or Sega and the Genesis Mini last year), but not sure how long this will be supported or if it can be justified (the Intelivision Mini and the Intellivision compilation games (DS is the best!) still play well and are overal cheaper).

Tommy Tallarico has so much passion for the Original Intellivision and the Amico that this will be supported for quite awhile..don't forget they are showing us retro remakes at the moment because that's what the base wants to see but these types of games will only make up about 25 percent of the titles..the rest will be new original titles

And thank you for reminding me that Tommy Tallarico is on-board with this. Now my interest has been rekindled... :-D

Thought about it, but didn't. I may regret that.

I'll pick one up when they come out. I hope there are enough sentimental Gen X types like me around to keep this system viable.

I missed out, but I'm also not a huge fan of faux woodgrain. I'd love to see a Tron themed one though!
