The Intellivision Amico has been in the works for a few years and we're getting closer and closer to its release date of October 10, 2020. The console's creators have been gradually revealing more games including half-a-dozen included games and relaunches of several classic Intellivision titles like Moon Patrol.

Now, Intellivision has revealed another three games are being added to its library in a press release. These new sports games will give families even more fun things to play, although some of these fit a very loose definition of sports.

What Are the New Intellivision Amico Sports Games?

One of the new Intellivision Amico sports games will let you and your family enjoy some roaring baseball fun, but the other two titles are a little less traditional takes on sports.

What are the new Intellivision Amico Sports Games?

  • Major League Baseball - The Major League Baseball game on the Intellivision was one of the earliest sports games ever made with official backing from a sports league and now it's making its way back for Intellivision's new console. This new baseball game will feature all 30 current MLB teams and will feature a competitive play mode.
  • Evil Knievel - Evil Knievel is probably the world's most legendary daredevil. He once had a game on the Intellivision and the newer version will bring thrilling multiplayer gameplay including the Skycycle X-2 rocket that was used in his Snake River Canyon jump that spectacularly failed and nearly killed the titular daredevil.
  • American Cornhole League - You know that thing where you throw little bean bags into a hole about 30 feet away? This casual lawn game is popular enough that it has its own league, and now there's a video game, too.

These three new games join an already impressive library of titles, many of which include modern remasters on classic Intellivision games. If you're interested in this family-friendly console, you can pre-order an Intellivision Amico on GameStop starting at $249.99 or your regional equivalent.
