AtGames® and Rare Ltd. Announce a Partnership to Publish Original Virtual Pinball and Games based on Action-adventure and Fighting Franchise Games including Killer Instinct, Battletoads, Cobra Triangle, and Solar Jetman on the AtGames Legends Arcade & Pinball Platform.
AtGames®, a leader in interactive entertainment products, today announced that classic action-adventure and fighting properties including Killer Instinct, Battletoads, Cobra Triangle, and Solar Jetman will be featured on AtGames’ Legends HD and Legends 4K products. In total, 19 all-time classic titles will be available to publish as game packs and selected for embedded inclusion on the Legends Arcade & Pinball Platform in Legends HD and Legends 4K formats. Additionally, AtGames will develop and publish new original virtual pinball tables based on selected properties from classic Rare franchises and the shared-world pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves, exclusively for play on the Legends HD and Legends 4K products.
“Rare is always looking for best-in-class partners to help bring our iconic characters to life in new, exciting ways," says Adam Park, Head of Brand & Licensing at Rare. "Placing them in the new Legends Arcade & Pinball space AtGames has created provides an exciting expansion and innovation, and we look forward to seeing our fans' reaction to this exceptionally engaging platform."
This new partnership, brokered by Rare’s licensing agency Tinderbox, builds on previous AtGames initiatives that have brought extensive libraries of classic arcade video games and legendary digital pinball tables, as well as original tables, to their range of exciting home arcades and pinballs devices for authentic gameplay, video, and sound.
“These classic properties have delighted fans for generations,” says Dr. Ping-Kang Hsiung, CEO of AtGames. “We are humbled to partner with Rare and Microsoft on making these classic action-adventure and fighting franchise properties as memorable as their other iconic media adaptations.”
The new game packs, as well as virtual pinball tables based on iconic Rare properties, are expected to start to appear on AtGames’ Legends HD and Legends 4K Arcade & Pinball Family products in late 2023.
