Released in 1986 it never did particularly well. Its available in PAL versions. Features almost 100 independent sprites, better color pallette and a computer keyboard add-on. An encryption key system was added into its cartridges, If the key was valid the MARIA chip would become active and go into 7800 mode, if not then the system would stay in 2600 compatibility mode. There were 3 revisions of the system.
