Atari Partners With Antstream Arcade To Deliver Thousands Of Retro Games
Earlier this year, Atari announced a major delay for the launch of their miniature console. As an amped up, modern version of the classic platform, the Atari VCS obliterated its crowdfunding goals on IndieGoGo. With just a few months away from its impending release date, their adorably tiny console will pack a mighty punch with the ability to instantly stream hundreds of retro games when it hits shelves.
Teaming up with Antstream Arcade, the Atari VCS will deliver over thousands of classic titles with instantaneous access – that means no downloads or emulators. On top of the 100-plus titles pre-installed into the miniature console, a retro fan can sink endless hours into their favorite memories. According to Atari, titles include classics from Sega MegaDrive/Genesis, Commodore 64, Nintendo Entertainment System, and more:
Our plan is for the Atari VCS Antstream app to debut with at least 50 Atari home and arcade titles, plus the full Antstream lineup of licensed retro classics, curated from a huge collection of classic games from other legendary consoles including Sega MegaDrive/Genesis, Nintendo64, Commodore 64, Atari 2600, Atari ST, PC, Atari 5200, Nintendo NES, Sega Master System, NeoGeo, Intellivision and many more, plus arcade classics.
In addition to the myriad of choices, players can participate in a global leaderboard by competing head-to-head with friends and strangers on playful challenges.
