If you want to relive some of that ’80s gaming glory you had on the Atari, there’s are a couple of new ways to enjoy that, courtesy of PQube. For starters, the Atari Retro Handheld system features a 2.4″ LCD screen, looks inspired by the classic console, and comes packed with 50 games inside.

When you want to play on a bigger screen it has a TV output as well. For those times you’d rather play with the traditional control, the Atari Retro Plug and Play Joystick looks and feels just like the old joystick from the console days. It has an integrated TV output as well.

The launch for both systems will be October 19 with Funstockretro.co.uk offering the handheld for £34.99 (~$45 USD) and the joystick for £24.99 (~$32 USD). Pre-orders get a limited-edition Atari Centipede collectible coin with their purchase.
