For those of you who are true gamers, you will associate the brand Atari with many amazing childhood gaming memories. And if you’re a blockchain fan, then you will be happy to hear that Atari is planning to release blockchain versions of two popular mobile games.
Atari (famous for games likeTetris and Pac Man) have teamed up with Animoca to produce and publish blockchain versions of “RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch” and “Goon Squad” globally.
Atari claims that RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch saw 19 million downloads worldwide, which you have to admit, is a pretty impressive number. Especially considering the rather small blockchain game market.
Both Atari and Animoca have also reportedly entered into an agreement to explore mutual opportunities in gaming, product development and blockchain technology. This simply means, we can expect much more from this partnership in the year ahead.
Animoca’s blockchain versions of both Atari games will integrate non-fungible tokens (NFT). Even though no details have been revealed, we can speculate that trading and customization will be an important part of both games. How exactly? We’ll have to wait and see.
Currently, the games are slated for release in the second half of 2019. We’ll keep you all posted as we learn more.
