“We are thrilled that we have been able to sign Koch Media, Europe’s leading distributor for the launch of Intellivision Amico. We cannot imagine a better partner”, says Hans Ippisch, President Europe of Intellivision and Managing Director of Intellivision Entertainment Europe GmbH. “Dr. Klemens Kundratitz has been closely following our development since 2018 and presented a convincing concept to get the exclusive distribution rights from Europe, Australia and New Zealand.”
Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media GmbH, adds: “the Amico product range fits perfectly into our broad line-up and further strengthens our position in the family entertainment category. Our colleagues look forward to fully supporting this unique product offering in our local markets with our broad publishing experience, which extends to games as well as hardware and merchandise.”
Intellivision Amico is planned to release in Europe in October 2021, a one-year slip compared to initial planning, because of Covid19 situation.
