Coleco Turns ROBOTECH and RAINBOW BRITE Into Mini Arcade Games

Coleco Turns ROBOTECH and RAINBOW BRITE Into Mini Arcade Games

While Robotech and Rainbow Brite were created in the ’80s, neither franchise received its own arcade title during that era. But now, Coleco is turning the clock back thirty years to give Robotech and Rainbow Brite the throwback style video games they deserve as the latest releases in the Coleco Evolved Mini Arcade line. Coleco put the two games up on Kickstarter earlier in May and the project is already closing in on its $30,000 funding goal.

The mini arcade games are based upon Coleco’s classic titles, and the latest additions maintain the outer appearance of those games. However, the interior of the machines have received a significant upgrade. Instead of using a “calculator screen” and four C batteries, the new generation of mini arcade games feature a full color LCD display screen and a rechargeable battery.

As explained in the video above, Rainbow Brite: Journey to Rainbow Land is a RPG; while Robotech: The Macross Saga is a side-scrolling arcade shooter that lets the players choose between Fighter, Guardian, and Battloid Modes.

The Kickstarter campaign is currently running an early bird special for both titles. A pledge in the amount of $45 will let backers pick which game they want, while an $85 pledge will give players both of them. Once those packages are claimed, the pledge prices will go up to $55 and $105, respectively. There are also options at higher tiers for collectors’ editions of both games.

You can find more info on the Kickstarter campaign page, which will be active until June 7.
