The Atari VCS edition of Antstream Arcade will ultimately bring a wide assortment of classic retro games to the upcoming Atari console. This will also include a wealth of Atari’s own library of console and arcade titles. This will instantly unlock classic video game titles, and in addition to the existing library of 2,000+ games, it will feature the largest collection of Atari games, available on demand. These will be in their original and enhanced editions.
Accessible from the Atari VCS system dashboard at launch, the Antstream Arcade app for the Atari VCS offers a 30-day free trial, with subscription options available for $9.99(US)/month or $7.99(US)/month (total $95.88) for a yearly subscription. Antstream Arcade on the Atari VCS will exclusively offer fifty classic Atari titles at launch for new and existing Antstream Arcade users to enjoy whenever they sign on from their Atari VCS system, with additional games added on a steady basis.
Atari CEO Frédéric Chesnais discussed this move:
“Antstream Arcade is a perfect partner for Atari and its fans. Anstream’s offering lets players instantly access a vast library of games, including many Atari titles that have not been available for streaming before now. This partnership further cements the Atari VCS as a highly versatile entertainment platform and multimedia streaming device, built to embrace the best of classic and modern gaming.”
