AtGames has announced a trio of new products in the Legends Arcade family, bringing the joy of arcade gaming directly to your TV.
If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy some classic arcade games, but don’t have the space (or money) for a full unit, then you’re in luck. AtGames has announced three additions to their Legends Arcade line that connect to your television (or monitor). Essentially, they’re arcade controllers, that connect to your setup so you can play from the comfort of your couch but still feel like you’re getting the “arcade experience.”
The new devices will launch this October, with three options: Gamer Pro, Gamer, and Gamer Mini. Each will come pre-loaded with 150 licensed arcade games (check the full list here) BUT it still connects to the internet and ArcadeNet, so you’ll be able to take advantage of cloud games and download more titles.
Starting at $99, these feel like a great budget alternative to their Legends Ultimate Arcade, which just went back up for sale last week.
The Legends Gamer series gives players the same complete arcade control experience: joysticks, buttons, and trackball as the full-sized Legends Ultimate Arcade, in packages designed to fit any living space. The Legends Gamers work with any HDMI-based projector, monitor, or TV, including vertical displays, for true big-screen gaming, and features a wide range of built-in, licensed arcade and console games. Internet connectivity means ArcadeNet® and BYOG™ cloud-gaming and streaming capabilities, voice chat, friends lists, global leaderboards, and more.
The Legends Gamer Pro (MSRP $249). The most full-featured of the Gamer series, it includes a trackball in addition to arcade quality joysticks, pinball buttons, and 150 built-in licensed games.
The Legends Gamer (MSRP $199) Great for two-player action, it features two arcade-quality joysticks and pinball buttons, and includes the same 150 built-in licensed games as the Gamer Pro. A trackball is optional.
The Legends Gamer Mini (MSRP $99) For solo players, it has a single arcade-quality joystick as part of its wireless control top, 100 built-in licensed games, and eight action buttons. Pinball buttons are optional.
Features of the Legends Gamer include:
– 100 – 150 licensed arcade and console games built-in
– Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth connectivity
– Arcade-quality hardware and controls
– Online gaming, including eSports
– ArcadeNet® games service
– Stream gameplay directly to popular streaming services

Will you be picking one of these up this October?
