If you’re a fan of classic arcade games and virtual pinball, you’re in for a treat with AtGames’ new partnership with TAITO for the Legends Arcade products.
As if you needed more reasons to jump on AtGames’ Legends Arcade line of products, gamers have something else to look forward to in early 2021: virtual pinball tables. The company is partnering with TAITO to develop brand new virtual pinball tables for gamers to play, each of which are based on classic arcade titles like Bubble Bobble, Space Invaders, and more:
AtGames, a leader in interactive entertainment products, today announced that classic TAITO arcade properties will be featured in new virtual pinball tables for the AtGames Legends Arcade Family of products running on the Legends Arcade Platform.
The TAITO arcade properties that will be developed into exciting new original virtual pinball tables exclusively for play on Legends Arcade Platform products like the Legends Ultimate, Legends Gamer, and Legends Pinball include Arkanoid, Bubble Bobble, Elevator Action, Chack’n Pop, Darius, Front Line, Operation Wolf, Rainbow Islands, Rastan Saga, Space Invaders, The Legend of Kage, and Zoo Keeper.
“These beloved TAITO arcade properties, with their iconic characters and play mechanics, make perfect candidates for fun, new original virtual pinball table creations,” says Dr. Ping-Kang Hsiung, CEO of AtGames. “We look forward to working with TAITO on making these virtual pinball tables as memorable as their iconic inspirations.”
This new initiative builds on the previous partnership between the two companies to make TAITO’s extensive library of classic arcade video games available on a range of exciting new home arcade products, complete with authentic gameplay, video, and sound. The first such products to feature TAITO’s arcade classics are the Legends Ultimate full-size home arcade and Legends Gamer wireless tabletop arcades.
“We look forward to continuing the partnership with AtGames on this fun new line of virtual pinball tables,” says Tetsu Yamada, president and representative director of TAITO Corporation. “Our classic arcade properties will continue to be a showcase on the company’s popular home arcade and pinball hardware platforms.”
These virtual tables are expected to drop early next year. Will you be playing them?
