Odyssey2 Flashback

Hi, any chance of a Odyssey 2 flashback console at some point? I loved that console as much as the colecovision. KC Munchkin, Pick axe pete, Attack of the timelords, UFO....I could go on and on. It was a sin that it did not sell better than its competition at the time. Anyhow, any insight you can give me?

These Flashbacks are considered mainstream products and are meant to appeal to the general consumer who remembers this stuff from their childhood, i.e., they'll pass it on a store shelf and make an impulse buy. Unfortunately, as much as we may like the Odyssey2, it just doesn't have the same fanbase or nostalgia that something like the Atari 2600, Intellivision, ColecoVision, or Sega Genesis have. I can tell you that other platforms are under consideration for other types of products (like digital download, mobile, etc.), but the Odyssey2 has never come up for consideration. To be fair, it would also be tough to make a Flashback based on the Odyssey2, because even though the keyboard was little used, it was still there, and some of its better games were the hybrid board games, which wouldn't be practical to support. It might make for a nice mobile app, though.

Cabbage Patch Kids will likely never happen because of the expensive licensing, but if a future deal is worked out with Activision, a future Flashback might have H.E.R.O.

You had me at Artillery Duel. Still my favorite version of that style of game.

The only disappointment with that version is that there's no one player mode.

It's a favorite of mine too. Unfortunately, it wasn't available to license this time around.

No, there are no save states. This plays as it would on an original console in that regard.
