It's for the raspberry pi 3, 3B, and 3B+. In the comments under the video people are calling it the best Commodore Amiga/C64 Retropie gaming image ever because of things like it's ease and preconfiguration that's been already set up. There's more details about it in the video description such as that it includes other systems of that era and the arcade but specifically was built for the Amiga and C64 with assigned controller buttons so no need for a mouse or keyboard to control games or get past setup screens. In the comments people say that you can even play games such as Pinball Dreams using the flippers with the gamepad instead of a keyboard with no need to configure such things in Retropie because it's already been done for you. They say it has other stuff setup too like a button to jump and individual game setups you can tinker with, or that it even auto switches between pal or ntsc and already has best hardware configuration for each game. OBVIOUSLY MAKE SURE YOU ALREADY OWN THE ROMS AND GAMES FOR LEGAL USE. As for me, I'm getting the A500 mini because of the cool case, controller, mouse, and unique and officially licensed front end and software. And I plan to get the A500 Maxi when it comes out too.
By the way, check out all the love this guy put into this Amiga and C64 image, with stuff like categories for Amiga racing games and other stuff. Incredible effort.
Cool. Somehow I missed your post about it. The Raspberry pi 3b+ seems to still be the ultimate board for retro gaming with tons of software out there even compared to prior raspberry pi boards, and this image is said to work with the pi 3, 3B, or 3B+. The Pi 4 and 400 with built in keyboard is even better, but I guess with the current shortages of stuff people are relying on from China it's not taking off as it should be.
