Atari Jaguar with the standard controller

The Atari Jaguar is a 64-bit home video game console developed by Atari Corporation and designed by Flare Technology, released in North America first on November 23, 1993.[1] It was the sixth programmable console developed under the Atari brand. The following lists contain all of the games released for the Jaguar.

Unveiled at the August's 1993 Chicago Consumer Entertainment Show,[2] the system was released to compete with 16-bit consoles such as the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System and 32-bit systems such as the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer (which launched the same year), Amiga CD32, Philips CD-i and later in its life cycle the PlayStation and Sega Saturn. The Jaguar struggled to matain a substantial userbase during most of its life and by 1996, the system and game development for it were discontinued. On April 8 of 1996, Atari Corp. merged with JT Storage in a reverse takeover[3] and four days later the company filed a 10-K405 SEC Filing.[4] The system's crippled multi-chip architecture that was difficult for most developers to program games for it,[5] combined with Atari Corp.'s severely limited financial resources[6] and poor commercial performance in the market resulted in a limited library of only 44 titles released in cartridge format during its official commercial run, with 6 more titles released when the system was discontinued. Originally released at US$249.99, Atari Corp. dropped the price to $159.99 in 1995 for a few months before being dropped again to $99.99 for clearing their remaining inventory. Less than 250.000 units were sold.[7] This list does not includes games for the system's Atari Jaguar CD add-on.
