AtGames Announces New Plug and Play Retro Systems

AtGames has announced a new line of “Blast!” products. These are plug and play consoles that include HDMI connection, wireless controller and eight to twenty classic video games per model. The Blast! line of products will be available at US and Canadian retailers on October 1 and will retail between $19.99 and $39.99. The Blast! family includes the Atari Flashback Blast! Vol. 1, Atari Flashback Blast! Vol. 2, Activision Flashback Blast!, Legends Flashback Blast! and Bandai Namco Flashback Blast! It is worth mentioning that the Atari Flashback Blast! Vol. 3 swaps the wireless gamepad for a pair of wireless game paddles, which is better suited for the specific titles included in that model. Every Blast! includes high-definition video output, an intuitive menu system, save and resume game functionality and the ability to rewind a game in progress to recover from a play misstep. An optional second wireless gamepad can be purchased for games that support two players.

AtGames also announced the Legends Flashback console that features slightly newer console and arcade classics. The Legends Flashback console features 50 built-in games and includes two six button controllers. Games included are such hits as Tetris, Galaga, 1942, BurgerTime, Dig Dug, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Mega Man and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers. Other features included with this collection are high definition 720p video output with scan line filtering, an intuitive menu system, save and resume game functionality, and the ability to rewind a game in progress to recover from a play misstep. The Legends Flashback will also be available October 1 with a suggested retail price of $39.99.
