The Atari Panther is a game console to be developed by Atari. It would have been released before the Atari Jaguar in 1991.


The Atari Panther would have been a 32-bit system, with a Motorola 68000 running at 16 MHz, a custom sound chip dubbed “Otis,” and a custom object processor dubbed “The Panther.”

Planned Games

  1. Cybermorph
  2. Raiden
  3. Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy
  4. Mario Bros.
  5. Donkey Kong
  6. Donkey Kong Jr.

Why it was Cancelled

The Atari Jaguar was progressing at a faster rate than intended, so Atari left the Panther in the dust. The console was never prototyped anyway.


  1. The Atari Jaguar came out in 1993.
  2. The planned games were ported over to the Jaguar.
