Atari previously teased a new console, making it the first hardware console since the 1993-released Atari Jaguar. Now, the company has shown off what the console actually looks like.

Featured above, the new console has an HDMI port, four USB ports, an SD card slot, and an ethernet cable port. That’s basically all we have to go on for now. Here’s some more shots:

There are two models, one with the classic faux-wood front, and a fancier one with black glass. The company does hint that the ports indicate this is a “modern” console, with a catch:

As you can guess, those ports suggest modern internal specs. It also means that while we will be delivering classic gaming content, we will also be delivering current gaming content.

It’s worth pointing out the description for the hardware also mentions “current gaming content.”

Atari promises more details like specs, games, features, pricing, and more in a more “step by step” reveal process, as they “listen closely to Atari community feedback” because they “we want to get this right.”

We’ll keep you guys posted.
