Gamers rejoice the original console is back.

In a move that’s sure to have geeks wetting their pants, Atari will be relaunching the 80s icon through Target and JB Hi Fi.

The Flashback 7 console will be available online for $89 at Target and $99 from JB Hi and will come with two wireless shaped controllers that are a replica of the originals.

Early reports suggest the console will be preloaded with Atari classics like Breakout Asteriods, Championship Soccer, Space Invaders, Street Racers and Frogger, with four player mode available.
