300+ Commodore Amiga Classics Due For Re-Release As Writers Group Film Corp Purchase Amiga Games Inc

Amiga-Games-IncIn a deal which has been valued at approximately $500,000, Writers' Group Film Corp. have purchased the company Amiga Games Inc along with the countless classic titles it currently has licensed. This deal, however, is one retro gamers should keep a close eye on, as the new owners have solid plans to push out the Amiga titles we all know and love onto handheld devices.

Unfortunately for us, the press release discussing this deal gives very little detail away regarding which 300+ titles these new owners have acquired. Instead, gamers around the world have been promised that several announcements will be made in the coming weeks - hopefully ones regarding which Amiga classics will be heading our way real soon.

Until then, maybe this is the perfect excuse to dust off your Commodore Amiga A500 and take a trip down nostalgia lane with the likes of Sensible Soccer, Superfrog, Cannon Fodder and Monkey Island.

SWEEEET! Greatness does indeed await, I wonder what handheld devices they're on about, specifically Android/iOS or maybe 3DS too, would be awesome if Amiga made it onto the 3DS VC
