Atari say "yeah, go on then" when asked about a partnership.
Atari® and Arcade1Up announce an exclusive partnership to strengthen their relationship and ensure the future of arcade gaming is true to the experience consumers remember.
Arcade1Up launched in October of 2018 with multiple games from Atari® and other licenses which quickly took the market by storm when they sold out at various retailers while building a fan community over one-hundred thousand strong. Arcade1Up’s ¾ scale format with designs and artwork true to the original arcade games they feature bring nostalgia to consumers in a form factor that allows them to fit multiple cabinets in their game room.
“We are proud to work with Arcade1Up. In the mid-sized category, they are our exclusive partner, which enables both of us to fully cooperate and deliver the best product in the marketplace.” Said Fred Chesnais, CEO, Atari®.
With titles like Centipede® and Asteroids®, Atari® and Arcade1Up make this announcement not only to confirm their past launches were successful but to ensure that the future of arcade gaming is held to high standards of quality in both gameplay and appearance.
“We’re excited to make this announcement which can be seen as the foundation for our continued, long term relationship,” said Scott Bachrach, CEO, Tastemakers. “Together, we want to ensure that the quality of gameplay and the arcade experience you remember is maintained and delivered in our existing and future product launches with Atari®.”
