In 1981, Coleco released a line of mini arcade machines that changed the way we played arcade games forever.

For the first time, people could experience Pac-Man, Frogger, Donkey Kong, and many more classics outside the arcade. 

For years, we've heard your requests to bring this classic arcade machine back to life for a new generation. Well, the wait is over! 

Introducing Coleco Evolved.

Coleco Evolved Mini Arcade machines preserve the classic shape and heavy-duty plastic shell construction you remember from the 80s while updating the technology inside to create a modern arcade gaming experience. 

Our two new mini arcades will have both Frenzy and Berzerk games on them! One of them will be a Special Edition Berzerk shell for our classic collectors.

Coleco Evolved machines feature:

  • Full Color LCD Display
  • Powerful new gaming chip set
  • Revamped joystick and accurate action buttons (*Front control panel may or may not be updated to two joysticks)
  • Rechargeable Lithium Ion battery pack
  • Highly-detailed, colorful Berzerk and Frenzy art wraps 

It's Retro done right!

Stern’s Berzerk was released in 1980 and quickly became a fan favorite. Berzerk is a multi-directional shooter arcade game, which places the player in a series of top-down, maze-like rooms containing armed robots. Frenzy, released in 1982, was created as a sequel to the hit arcade game Berzerk. Now featuring our all black machine, the 2-in-1, which shows both Berzerk AND Frenzy on the shell.

Risks and challenges

We have already finished the prototyping and awaiting a production sample. Even though a lot of the heavy design work is already done, there are always significant changes that come at the at the final pre-production sample stage. We want to make sure that the product we deliver lives up to the hard work put into the original Coleco Minis from the 80's.
