Trabuco Canyon, CA (PR) – December 17, 2015 Video-game industry pioneer COLECO re-enters the market, partnering with Retro Video Game Systems, Inc., to introduce a new, modern-day video-game system called the COLECO Chameleon.

Chris Cardillo, a partner in COLECO said, "Mark [Thomann] and I are excited to work hand-in-hand with Retro Video Game Systems, Inc. in the launch of the COLECO Chameleon. It's ironic that a new ‘retro’ video-game system would actually revolutionize and revitalize the COLECO brand."

And, for the first time in nearly 20 years, the COLECO Chameleon will once again play brand new games on long-lasting, durable cartridges that can be played, traded, and collected for a lifetime. And all game cartridges will include high quality, plastic clamshell cases with illustrated instruction manuals and game developer liner notes.


Nintendo, MS and Sony should give up already.

Like, are they intending on making new 8, 16 and 32 bit video games on this device in cartridge form? Because that's some misty eyed man tear enducing shit right there if so... Yes please and thank you.

@TheEroica: I'll keep this on my radar. It could be the second Coleco system I'll own!

I vote right now that Coleco fans be named Cabbages in SW, as Coleco was responsible for Cabbage Patch Kids back in the 80's.

If it's true i'm very interested, but the console looks suspiciously like an Atari jaguar.
