Atari does it yet again! We’ve covered how great the recent year has been for Atari if you factor in products like the ‘Art of Atari‘ book or the ‘Atari Flashback Portable‘. But there is no stopping their momentum with the recent news that their popular Atari Flashback Classics Vol 1 + 2 will be coming to the PAL Regions.
Last year in October saw Atari release the Classics Vol 1 + 2 to the United States to great sales and a rebirth of interest in their classic titles. This prompted UK Publisher PQube to pick up the distribution rights to the Atari Flashback Classics Vol 1 + 2 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Andy Pearson, Head of Marketing (Hardware and Tech) at distributors PQube, said:
“With retro gaming increasing in popularity, it’s great to see more classics get a new lease of life on two of today’s best-selling consoles. Both games offer fantastic value for money and will help bring popular Atari 2600 video games like Asteroids to a new generation of gamers.”
As well as boasting an extensive visual archive of classic artwork for each game, both volumes also include a range of new in-game features. Gamers can play online, unlock achievements and try their best to secure a place on global leaderboards.
Under the helm of PQube and Atari, these classic games will be hitting the PAL Region on March 31st 2017. To pre-order your copies and not miss out on these wonderful Retro memories, click here!
