Dear Gaming World: get ready for the Coleco Chameleon. The makers of the ColecoVision have announced that they’re taking another crack at the home game console market with a brand new system. Even crazier than that, this thing is going to be cartridge based.
Coleco is working alongside Retro Video Game Systems to get this done. Retro President Mike Kennedy offers that “the Coleco Chameleon is a love-letter to all the classic cartridge based gaming systems that came before it…”
The Coleco Chameleon is a “modern day take on the classic game console.” It will play new 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit games. It’ll even play some classics, though we don’t know which. All games will be released on cartridges.
We won’t have to wait long for the Coleco Chameleon. The console launches in early 2016.
