The new Atari game console has been revealed and gamers are freaking out.

Back in June, Atari teased a new console and vaguely mentioned what exactly it would be like. Today, they showed what the new console will look like and what it will be capable of.

The new console is the first one released by Atari in over 20 years and is known as the "Ataribox." A newsletter from Atari said, "the new project stays true to our fans while appealing to both old and new fans of Atari."

Many gaming publications are saying the new Atari will be similar to how Nintendo brought back the NES Classic. There is currently no release date set for the new Ataribox, but it likely will not be released in 2017. According to the newsletter, it seems more information about the new console will be released as the project continues to develop.

If you're a retro-gamer, you have to be pleased with the progress for a gaming console that's been absent from the market for over two decades. Upon release, North Dakota gamers will have their fill of the new Ataribox.
