You’ve never seen Atari look like this before. 


Today, iconic interactive entertainment producer Atari unveils the final design of its upcoming limited edition Atari 2600 cartridges for Yars’ Return, Saboteur, and Aquaventure, all of which are getting the Atari XP treatment — and officially shipping — in May 2022. 


Sporting a visual design that departs entirely from the square label of the original Atari 2600 cartridges, the limited edition versions feature large, bold illustrations on the front panel and a premium, uniquely numbered sticker label on the back. Each game title is etched in premium lucite and sits on the top of the cartridge with a lighting feature that activates upon being plugged into the Atari console.


Atari XP Limited Edition Bundles include:

 
  • A newly manufactured, high-quality Atari 2600 cartridge made from special plastics
  • An extended instructional manual with bonus material
  • A hard enamel collectible pin with black nickel plating
  • A polyester blend, twill-woven embroidered collectible patch
  • A digital copy of the game, playable on the Atari VCS

Atari XP cartridges are manufactured to exacting standards from all new parts and materials, with beveled edges to prevent pin damage, strong gold-plated connectors, and identical power draw to the originals.
