Retro Games Ltd have announced they're to follow up the C64Mini with a brand new, full size recreation of the classic 8 bit that features a fully working keyboard and full access to the C64 BASIC mode.

It also includes support for VIC20 BASIC and includes 64 classic games. Not only that it supports loading of games via USB so you're not limited to those included in the package.

The pre-installed games include such classics as California Games, Paradroid and Boulder Dash; with new additions like Attack of the Mutant Camels, Hover Bovver, Iridis Alpha, and Gridrunner; topped off with the recently released shoot ‘em up Galencia and text adventure Planet of Death.

“We are delighted to be working with Koch Media once more to bring back even more of the most loved retro games ever on two of the most iconic home computers of all time, and which now has a full working keyboard”, said Paul Andrews, Retro Games’ Managing Director. “THEC64 full size is a reimagining of the classic C64 computer and the second in a planned series of products on the way.” 

THEC64 is set to arrive on UK shores on 5th December retailing at £109.99.
