Retro fans and casual gamers alike will have something more to rejoice over aside from their fall/winter holiday of choice in the upcoming holiday season. 50 classic Atari games, including Asteroids, Pong, Centipede, Missile Command, Tempest, Lunar Lander, Space Duel, Battlezone, and Adventure, will be compiled into what will possibly be the first installment of Atari’s Greatest Hits for Nintendo DS, arriving in North America this Fall.

According to Atari, every spotlighted game will feature the same control scheme as their original arcade and 2600 form, with modern updates to align with the Nintendo DS platform. Single card multi-player will be available for 20 titles including Space Duel and Pong; multi-card play will be available for head-to-head games. As an added bonus, the compilation will also include the original game manuals for each title, an Atari memorabilia showcase and other extras, such as an Atari Trivia game.
