Handheld Atari is like a Nintendo Switch for retro gamers

The Atari ‘Retro’ Handheld just got unveiled and it could be the perfect distraction while we wait for the Ataribox.

This hybrid handheld/home console has a 2.4-inch display so you can play games directly on the device, and it comes with an A/V TV output to give your nostalgia it a big-screen boost like the Switch.
That ‘wood’ effect really gives it a classic 2600 vibe, and it’s blessed with an impressive 50 built-in games. The chance to play the likes of Asteroids and Pong in the palms of your hands is a retrogaming treat, and the fact it’ll land in time for holiday season makes it the Christmas miracle your ’70s self has been waiting for.

You can preorder the Atari ‘Retro’ Handheld right now, and this stunning reimagination should tide us over nicely until Atari’s proper comeback.Are you tempted or will you wait to see how the Ataribox shapes up? Tweet us @trustedreviews
