AtGames Fights Off Bandai Namco Lawsuit, Starts Reselling Arcade Blast Micro-Console

AtGames is back to selling its popular Bandai Namco Arcade Blast! micro-console after a lengthy lawsuit with the publisher.

Last week a U.S. federal court dismissed the case against AtGames, giving it the right to remarket the product that features ten classic Bandai Namco games such as Dig Dug, Galaga, and Pac-Man. An official press release about the Arcade Blast! relaunch reads, “This announcement comes after a U.S. federal court dismissed Bandai Namco’s lawsuit against AtGames over IP rights in Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man games last week (Order of Dismissal by the Honorable Vince Chhabria of US District Court for the Northern District of California dated October 27, 2020, Case No. 19-cv-05898-VC).”

AtGames’ Bandai Namco Arcade Blast! is a patented HDMI-based console about the size of a USB stick – simply plug it into your TV and you have instant access to nearly a dozen classic games. The micro-console even comes with a wireless controller. If you happen own a Legends Ultimate cabinet, the Arcade Blast can used with its Arcade Play Link functionality to take advantage of its built-in controls.

The Arcade Blast! family is filled with products outside of Bandai Namco. The full lineup includes hits from publishers such as Atari and Activision and franchises such as Star Wars and Lion King. Each micro-console retails for $29.99 and comes with its own wireless Blast! controller.

Bandai Namco Arcade Blast! is available (again) for $29.99.
