Atari announced their partnership with MyArcade just a few days ago on December 28, 2022.
And both companies have posted mysterious console photos leading up to the CES event that takes place from Thursday January 5, 2023 to Sunday January 8, 2023.
There was less mystery in the caption “An icon, reimagined” paired with images of what appeared to be a modern iteration of the classic Atari 2600 joystick.
Reviewing all of the photos released, it appears that we will be seeing at least three new consoles: a home console (Atari VCS 2?), as well as a mini arcade and a handheld similar to MyArcade’s other products.
Atari have done an absolutely phenomenal job with brand collaborations and having relevant media and merchandise far beyond the lifespan of the consoles that made them so popular.
They certainly know how to curate* products that look good. So this situation would be no different. We anticipate the highest quality products that are gonna look incredible.[* I used the word “curate”, because they do not technically make the products themselves]
But until they officially announce them, we’d only be speculating about what games would be on these new consoles.
Though we have no solid info about these upcoming devices from Atari and MyArcade other than the photos, it is very exciting to think that we have at least three new consoles incoming.
Needless to say, we will be glued to our screens this week awaiting official news, and we will update you guys as soon as we have some more solid details about these new Atari consoles.
