“Atari 2600 Retro Handheld Console” Has Been Finally Announced


A new product from Atari has been revealed, and this one is a handheld Atari 2600 device and comes with pre-loaded games.

The Atari’s retro handheld console comes after the company wowed retro gamers with the Ataribox.

With a wood effect applied to the device for a retro look, the console mixes handheld gaming with plug-in-play features and allows for flexible gaming with 50 games, wrapped up into a £34.99 price, $40 before shipping.


The most stand-out feature of the Atari “Retro” Handheld console as it is being called is the wood grain look that reminds veteran gamers of the 2600 console, and it boasts more features than only looks.

The device has a 2.4-inch screen with controls on both sides and allows for quick manoeuvring in classic games. While owners can play in a handheld mode, an A/V output is there for playing on the big screens by connecting the device to a TV.

A few AAA batteries are required to play the device, so one should not expect a charger and battery like the newer handhelds.


Even though players have to pay for some batteries, their money will not be going towards any individual games.

Here is the full list of games:

  1. 3D Tic-Tac-Toe (31 in 1)
