If you’re a hardcore retro video game fanatic, appreciate the Nintendo Switch’s style, and haven’t already pre-ordered a SNES Classic, you’ll be glad to know that a portable Atari game console is on the way — and it’s packed with 50 timeless games!
The original Atari 2600 was released in 1977, and the console was responsible for making home video game systems cool with legendary games like Centipede, Yars’ Revenge, and Pong. This brand-new handheld system runs on AAA batteries, sports a 2.4-inch screen, and can be plugged into your TV for a bigger and brighter gaming experience.

Here’s the list of all 50 games that are included with the Atari ‘Retro’ Handheld:
3D Tic-Tac-Toe (31 in 1)
Demons to Diamonds
Fun With Numbers
Off the Wall
Pong – Video Olympics
Now here’s the wonky news: The only place that is currently selling this action-packed mini-Atari is a European website called Funstock Retro. The Atari “Retro” Handheld releases in November, and you can pre-order it for £34.99, with another £5.00 to ship it outside of Europe. That’s a nice collection of fun Atari games for about $50 USD, and Atari veterans who want to relive the good old days with Millipede and Asteroids should consider picking up the new console while it’s still available for preorder.
