Hopefully that doesn't mean Atari is just licensing its brand again for a partner to create and manage the hardware. While we saw a 20-second YouTube teaser that hinted the Ataribox would be housed in wood like the 2600, the video game maker has not provided many details about the console until today. However, for the last 30 years, Atari has strayed away from console hardware. Two versions of the Ataribox will be released, one in wood, and one in black / red.

As for the specs, Atari is keeping fans guessing for the most part, but the images confirm that the console comes with an SD card slot, four USB ports, HDMI output, an ethernet port and a headphone jack. At the time, Atari's CEO Fred Chesnais proudly proclaimed "We're back in the hardware business", and we (along with a bunch of other people) thought that the new console, with its sleek retro wooden looks, gave off a distinct NES Classic Mini vibe.

Blunt looks happy to be playing the iconic character, and is sure to give an incredible performance in the sequel. However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L.

The post went on to suggest that "there are a lot of milestones, challenges and decision points in front of us in the months ahead", perhaps indicating that the console won't be ready for release in 2017. Each will have a raised back and "ribbing", making it reminiscent of the console that inspired it, while options for glass or wood front finishes will be available.

We haven't seen what its controller looks like yet, so here's our pick of the best PC controllers in the meantime. We intend to release two editions: a wood edition, and a black/red edition. "We know you are hungry for more details; on specs, games, pricing, timing", the company said. We'll be giving you lots more information and status updates as we progress, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride! "We're not teasing you intentionally." continues the newsletter "We want to get this right, so we've opted to share things step by step as we bring this to life".
