Discover the hotels set in video games

Video games have become a reference in today’s culture. So much so that the developer Atari has opted for the creation of hotels set in the big titles. What news will it bring?

Atari is a video game company founded in 1972. The American organization designed the first consoles and recreational machines in history. In the 70s and 80s it became a world leader in the industry, at the level of Nintendo or Sony (PlayStation).

Keep in mind that the company went into crisis in the 90’s due to the sale of the Atari Jaguar console, which did not achieve the proposed objectives. But 30 years have passed and the organization has created the following proposal: the construction of hotels set in video games.

Video games as the protagonist
Atari has announced the construction of eight thematic hotels dedicated to the gamer world. The first hotel in this chain will be located in Phoenix (USA) and its construction will begin in summer 2020.

The other seven hotels can be found in Austin, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, San Jose, Denver and Las Vegas.

The novelty of these hotels is that they will be set in great titles such as Pong, Centipide and RollerCoaster Tycon.

Total immersion in the gaming world
The objective that Atari has is that the user does not need to leave the hotel, since they offer catering services and entertainment areas on the premises.

It will have areas that include virtual reality, augmented reality and in some of the hotels with a large studio for eSports events.

As you can see, the universe of video games has an influential role in popular culture. So much so that it is not the first time we see a video game company create thematic facilities. An example is Nintendo.

The Japanese entity, which has created great titles such as Super Mario and Legend of Zelda, has designed not a hotel, but a theme park.

In 2017, Nintendo introduced the Super Nintendo World, which is scheduled to open the doors to the public in the summer of 2020 on the occasion of the opening of the Tokyo Olympics.

This park will have several areas set in the world of Nintendo, but the main attraction will be that of the world inspired by Super Mario, where they have confirmed that there will be a roller coaster based on Super Mario Kart.

If you like the exciting world of digital entertainment, in Movistar + there are several documentaries that mention the gamer universe and especially the eSport.

A documentary that we have to highlight is Not a game, which will be released soon on the Telef├│nica platform.
