Atari is bringing a trio of super-rare retro games in physical form. Aquaventure, Saboteur and Yars Return will be available on Atari 2600 cartridges and come in beautiful 80s packaging.


You’ll be able to choose between the $50 standard editions, which include cartridge only, or the super-fancy $150 limited edition. The latter included cartridges, a premium poster, a printed instruction manual with bonus materials, a collectible pin and badge, a certificate of authenticity, and a digital copy of the game playable on the Atari VCS.

Only 1,983 copies of each limited edition cartridge would be made, honoring the year the video game crash would not have wiped out the market.

Preorders open on Tuesday. Standard editions orders placed before December 10th should be delivered by Christmas, while limited editions are expected to ship in the first quarter of 2022.

The cartridges are made from all-new parts and materials, with beveled edges to prevent pin damage, sturdy gold-plated connectors and the same power draw as the original, the company noted in a release.

Future Atari XP drops will include previously unreleased games, rare-one Atari physical media, and improved versions of classic games with refined mechanics and graphics.
