New ZX Spectrum coming later this month

The New Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega is coming out later this month, it’s been confirmed.

The brand new micro-controller computer, based on the influential Spectrum product from the 1980s will be available from August 24.

It will set you back £99.99, but it does come with 1000 built-in games and can connect to your TV via a simple AV cable.

Games include Knight’s Lore and Back to Skool. We would list them out, but 1000 titles takes up a lot of space and you can see the full list on the FunStock website.

This revival is the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign last year, which raised £155,612 for the new ZX Spectrum computer.

It’s supported by Sir Clive Sinclair, the original creator, but is developed by former ZX Spectrum developer Chris Smith.

You can play almost any ZX Spectrum game via a microSD Card slot, as well as any games you have programmed. It also comes with ready-mapped buttons for all included games – although you do have the option of using the built-in virtual keyboard too.

It uses a USB port for power, so all you’ll need is that and the AV cable to run the new ZX Spectrum.
