Tis the season for retro games
Let the celebrations resume! Today, historic video game publisher Atari and developer Digital Eclipse tease the first free content update for the interactive anthology experience Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration.
Coming December 5, 2023, this update rings in the holiday season with the addition of 12 fan-favorite Atari 2600 titles from the console’s heyday. From officially released titles and player-powered homebrews, to once-lost Atari prototypes, Atari 50 shapes up to be the gift that keeps on giving.
Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration’s holiday update brings 12 new titles to the anthology, giving novice gaming historians an even deeper look into the legacy of the grandfather of the gaming industry. A mix of prototypes, homebrews, and official titles, this new update seeks to expand the library of the interactive virtual museum Atari 50 brought to players in 2022. This update isn’t exhaustive, though — it’s the first of many planned by Atari and its partner in video game preservation Digital Eclipse. Future planned updates will expand the title’s repertoire with more games, concept art, and additional behind-the-scenes interviews with industry legends.
Developed by Digital Eclipse, Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is available on Nintendo Switch for $39.99.
