Van­cou­ver-based Liq­uid Me­dia has re­vealed it has bought the rights to 65 clas­sic videogames. The com­pany’s chair­man, Joshua Jack­son (who you might know from Fringe and Daw­son’s Creek) is ex­cited about the ac­qui­si­tion, say­ing: “So many peo­ple, my­self in­cluded, are re­turn­ing to the clas­sics.

The nos­tal­gia brought on by this resur­gence in retro games con­nects us to our child­hoods – and cre­ates in­cred­i­ble de­mand.”

What’s in­ter­est­ing about the ac­qui­si­tion is that many of the games in ques­tion (which in­clude NFL games, Bub­ble Bobble, Wetrix, and Street Fighter: The Movie) are li­censed, which means Liq­uid Me­dia will likely need to make more deals to rere­lease the games. We’re also un­sure if any­one is still in­ter­ested in playing Antz Rac­ing in 2018. We could be wrong, though.
