Original article (Tuesday 19th July 2022 17:30 BST): LEGO is on a roll with its video game ties right now! We have the Mighty Bowser roaring in October, and a new Princess Peach set next month. But we’re going to step away from Nintendo for just a second to bring you something that could be the perfect companion for your LEGO NES.

Today, LEGO officially announced its version of the infamous Atari 2600 (thanks VGC!) just in time for the company’s 50th anniversary. The Atari 2600 is remembered for various reasons, some less good than others, but no one can deny that it is an influential system that has now been immortalized as a LEGO game! LEGO shared a pretty lovely clip to promote the buildable console, where the company gave a set to someone who was once very excited about owning an Atari back in 1982.

Like the NES before it, the Atari 2600 is quite small and very elaborate. The console will be 8x33x22cm when fully built. But it doesn’t just come with the console! The 2,532-piece set includes the console, controller, small versions of three iconic games: Asteroids, Centipede, and Adventure, and you can even build cartridges to fit inside the console!

Our favorite thing about the build is the vignette you can build, which recreates an ’80s-style room with posters, a cat, and a soda can.

Not convinced? Here are some pretty eye-catching photos of the LEGO build:

The set launches on August 1st and will retail in £209.99 (or equivalent), but it’s warming up our retro fuzzies. Our NES needs a friend, and we meet the right candidate to sit on the shelf next to him. You can check out everything you need to know about the console on the LEGO Store page.

Will you collect the LEGO Atari 2600? Let us know your thoughts on the buildable console in the comments!
