The gaming big Atari has lately made a giant announcement, stating that it has acquired the rights to greater than 100 video games (for PC and console) from the 80s and 90s. The corporate has plans to revive these traditional titles, together with remasters, re-releases, and even new entries in outdated sequence. In line with Atari, the acquisition will permit it to “develop digital and bodily distribution of the traditional titles, create new video games primarily based on the IP, and discover model and merchandising collaborations.” Though the total record of titles has not been revealed, it consists of video games from Accolade, Infogrames, and Microprose; a few of the names that Atari talked about particularly are Bubsy, Hardball, and Demolition Racer, in addition to the flight simulators 1942: Pacific Air Battle, F-117A, and F-14.
In fact, one recreation that stands out from the record is Bubsy; within the 90s, Bubsy was a mediocre platformer who did not compete with Mario and Sonic, nevertheless, the orange cat and his video games have surprisingly remained related. Bubsy had three video games launched throughout completely different platforms, (SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive, PC, and Atari Jaguar) and there was even an unsuccessful pilot for an animated TV sequence, as we are able to see within the video under:
In 1996, Bubsy’s recognition took a giant hit with the discharge of Bubsy 3D, which acquired very unfavorable responses from critics and gamers. Nevertheless, greater than 20 years later, Bubsy made a comeback with two trendy sequels, The Woolies Strike Again in 2017, and Paws on Fireplace! in 2019, each of which acquired poor opinions. Regardless of this, Atari has included Bubsy in its “traditional titles” record and is threatening to revive the character once more for one more sequel.
It stays to be seen if the brand new Bubsy recreation will probably be a hit or a flop, however Atari’s acquisition of traditional video games is bound to fire up nostalgia amongst older players and introduce these traditional titles to a brand new era of gamers.
