Atari is building gaming hotels with the producer of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film reboots – PC Gamer

Firmly in the category of News I Wasn’t Expecting To Read Today Or Ever, Atari has announced it is building a series of “game-themed hotels” across the United States. Do your parents complain you play too many videogames? Soon you’ll be able to leave your house, get on a plane, visit a new city, and stay in hotel where you can play videogames. Now everybody’s happy!

Described as “a unique lodging experience combining the iconic brand with a one-of-a-kind videogame-themed destination,” Atari hotels will apparently feature “fully immersive experiences for every age and gaming ability, including the latest in VR and AR” as well as serve as venues for esports events.

That includes playing Donkey Kong on the roof, if this concept art is accurate:

Is it weird that Atari is getting into the hotel business? Maybe! But there’s no need for skepticism because they’re being guided by a dude who produced films filled with CGI turtles:
