by Ian Matties

September 29th saw the release of Centipede: Recharged, but that’s not all. Atari also announced three more classic games getting Recharged releases: Black Widow: Recharged, which launches on Thursday October 28th, Asteroids: Recharged and Breakout: Recharged which follow starting in Q4 2021.

Black Widow: Recharged brings you twin-stick arcade-style action with a modern-day neon refresh of the 1982 classic. In Black Widow: Recharged you work to defend the nest in couch co-op mode or solo with online leaderboards. New powerups are available that add more depth and strategy to the classic gameplay.

Atari has worked with developers Adamvision Studios and SneakyBox Studios to give these 70’s and 80’s arcade classics new life in a fresh and modern way.

The Recharged series will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam, Epic Games Store for Windows PC and the Atari VCS, with the Atari VCS receiving exclusive content and optimization to work with the new Atari Wireless Joystick.
