Atari has surprisingly announced its own hotel chain called Atari Hotels this week. The first accommodation in Phoenix, Arizona will be built later this year. Additional hotels in other US states are planned in the coming years. There will be numerous entertainment facilities and even studios for e-sports events. There is no date for the opening.

Atari has announced a deal with the GSD Group that will open the first video game hotel in the United States. The construction of the first Atari Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona is scheduled to begin in mid 2020. Each accommodation will be equipped with the highest level of entertainment products. There should also be numerous games in VR and AR. Selected hotels will also offer state-of-the-art studios that can be used for e-sports broadcasts and other events, for example.

The design of the Atari Hotels comes from the creators of the GSD Group and from Napoleon Smith III, who, among other things, worked as a producer on the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the cinema. Those responsible have already set their sights on further locations for the expansion of their hotel chain. These include Austin, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle. There will therefore be no Atari Hotels outside of the USA for the time being. Further details can be found on the website.

Finally, more and more companies from the video game industry are trying to become successful in other areas. Among other things, Nintendo will open its own theme world at Universal Studios in Osaka this year with "Super Nintendo World". Just recently, new details on the attractions of the theme world were mentioned here. A music video with Galantis and Charli XCX was also published to go with it. Fans can visit Super Nintendo World from summer 2020.
