Following a teaser at E3 in early June, Atari has officially unveiled its upcoming console, the Ataribox.
In an email to fans, the company says, “Our objective is to create something new, that stays true to our heritage, while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari.”
As shown in the imagery above, the new Ataribox sports the classic wood found on the Atari 2600 from the late 1970s, as well as ribbed lines, a raised back, and a front panel in either glass or wood. It will also feature SD card support, a HDMI port and four USB ports.
There will be two versions of the Ataribox, one in wood and one in black/red.
Atari says the new console will boast classic games, as well as “current content.” However, further details — such as pricing, a release date or specs — are currently unknown.
“We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, pricing, timing. We’re not teasing you intentionally; we want to get this right, so we’ve opted to share things step by step as we bring this to life, and to listen closely to the Atari community feedback as we do so,” Atari said in a statement.
