Intellivision, the video game industry pioneer and innovator originally known for the popular console of the same name, selected Ark for this high-profile project based on its manufacturing expertise and long-standing reputation as an innovation leader.
“Our trusted partnership with Ark Electronics reflects our focus on an integrated approach to developing Amico,” said Tommy Tallarico, President and CEO of Intellivision Entertainment. “We look forward to a collaborative relationship with Ark and leveraging their industry experience and expertise to provide a world-class gaming system.”
Amico will cater to an underserved segment of the home gaming market, offering a more family-friendly alternative to systems currently available.

With a budget-friendly price, six pre-loaded games with each system, and additional games typically priced around $9.99, Amico will further differentiate itself from other gaming options.
