Atari Flashback Classics

Atari Flashback Classics brings 150 updated Atari games to the PlayStation Vita in one collection.

Estranged video game uncle, Atari, has released Atari Flashback Classics Volumes 1 & 2 for the PlayStation Vita. The collection includes 150 Atari 2600, Atari 5200, and Atari arcade games, including retro gems like Asteroids, Centipede, Canyon Bomber, Warlords, and Missile Command.

It also doesn’t include some genuine classics such as The Empire Strikes Back, and Pitfall.

The release comes a week after the same collection came to the Nintendo Switch in North America. Interestingly, the PS Vita version of the game is available for $19.99, somewhat cheaper than the $39.99 Switch edition.

Flashback Classics includes a wealth of modern features, including online and local multiplayer for selected games, and online high score leader boards. There’s also support for Trophies, and PlayStation TV compatibility.

As with the Switch version, a mix of controller and touchscreen inputs can be used, depending on the game. It’s also a treasure trove for classic video game enthusiasts, with scans of the original Atari 2600 and 5200 game manuals, and some rather lovely arcade artwork.

Atari Flashback Classics Volumes 1 & 2 is now available on the PlayStation Store, and Nintendo eShop. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can also dive into the Atari back-catalogue across three separate Flashback Classics volumes.
