SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Atari Corp. (AMEX: ATC) today announced that it has commenced shipment of Jaguar, the world's first 64-bit interactive multimedia home entertainment system.

As he flies in a real-time texture-mapped, polygon-based world, his craft, the Cybermorph, can assume different forms as he cruises over the hills and valleys that look realistic, with lifelike shadows. A holographics face, Skylar, speaks to the player, giving him information as he races toward all 50 planets to complete his mission.
