Elite to relaunch ZX Spectrum in 2012

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

It’s the 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum next year, and apparently there are plans to relaunch the rubbery keyed home computer.

According to a report in the Telegraph, Elite Systems is undertaking this project. Elite is a games developer which was founded in 1984, and ported arcade classics such as Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Paperboy to the Speccy.

Quite what form this relaunched ZX Spectrum will take is another matter, as the newspaper’s report doesn’t go into much by way of technical details.

It suggests that the 2012 Spectrum will essentially be a bluetooth keyboard replica of the iconic home computer, possibly hooked up to your TV via an iPhone.

All in all, it’s pretty unclear exactly what Elite will be driving at here, but hopefully we’ll get more concrete details soon.

Of course, last year the Commodore 64, rival to the Speccy, was relaunched as an updated Intel Atom powered computer (with the same classic beige outer shell) by an American firm.
