Liquid Media is the latest company to try and tap the lucrative nostalgia well following its acquisition of 65 retro game titles from Throwback Entertainment.
Included in the deal are the rights to games such as All Star Baseball, NFL Quarterback Club, Kwirk, and Bubble Bobble.
Although speaking in vague terms, Liquid suggested the property acquisition could lead to game remasters, sequels, and even video adaptations of the properties.
In a statement, the company highlighted the thriving retro market driven by the release of classic mini consoles; in June, for example, the NES Classic was the fastest selling hardware in the US, outpacing both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
"Retro gaming is driving incredible success for the world's largest players, like Sony and Nintendo," said Charles Brezer, director of Liquid Media Group.
"Sony is gearing up to release a revamped version of its iconic PlayStation Classic just in time for the holiday season and Nintendo's retro consoles have sold millions of units in the past couple of years.
