Atari Brings Arcade-Duo Powered Joystick For iPad

by on September 6th, 2011

Remember the last time you heard of a modern world accessory from Atari? No? I don’t either! But today, the pioneer of arcade games and home gaming consoles has announced a pretty interesting iPad accessory called Arcade-Duo Powered Joystick. Many believe that Atari is somewhat dead now but to me, the company seems to be pretty much active. For instance, if you want to re-live some of those Atari classic gaming moments, you can do it right now your iOS device by downloading “Atari’s Greatest Hits” app for free from the AppStore. And with now with the announcement of this new iPad controller, Atari can go head to head with the popular iCade arcade joystick.

Relive the fast-action excitement of all your arcade favorites, like Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command.

Simply connect your iPad to Atari’s Greatest Hits app for Duo, and you’re ready to share the fun with family and friends anywhere!

Arcade-Duo’s design seems to support both landscape and portrait orientations. Though there aren’t much details published at the moment, but it’s highly likely that the device will use Bluetooth rather than going straight into the dock connector, much like how the iCade joystick works i.e by emulating a Bluetooth keyboard.

The device is current listed as “coming soon” on its website without any ETA or estimated selling price. We’ll be sure to let you know once it’s up for sale or pre-order. Stay tuned!
