Manufactured by Atari and originally released in 1972, Pong was one of the earliest arcade video games, created by Allan Alcorn as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell. Now, Atari Mini Pong Jr. brings that arcade classic to your tabletop, measuring just 30-centimeters in length, complete with an LCD screen. Featuring a single-player mode that pits you against an AI or 2-player local multiplayer. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
For a more authentic experience, it includes arcade sound effects and physical dials for players to control their respective Pong paddles. You can either power it with an included USB cable and adapter or install three lithium rechargeable batteries for portable play. There’s no word yet on pricing, but Arcade1Up is handling the North American distribution this holiday season.

We are extremely excited to be working with Atari on developing the Atari Mini PONG Jr. We previously launched several PONG tables for the amusement coin-op industry in partnership with Calinfer, and those products have done exceptionally well. PONG is truly an incredible license. I am looking forward to seeing the Atari Mini PONG Jr. hit the consumer market!,” said Steven Tan, General Manager of UNIS Technology (Canada) Ltd.
