Atari has announced that Breakout: Recharged will be blasting onto the Switch eShop on 10th February.
A modern take on the '70s arcade classic, Breakout: Recharged has players smashing their way through each neon-coloured brick across a variety of modes. An Endless option will put you through your paces, while Challenge mode will have you taking part in 50 increasingly challenging levels – oh, and you can even jump into a local co-op mode, too.
Strategy is key in Breakout: Recharged; land your hit or face unforeseen consequences on the digital battlefield! Utilize power-ups for explosive combos with the all-new rail gun, homing missiles, and unforgiving blasts to join the traditional multi-ball. You’ll need every tool in the arsenal and razor-sharp reflexes to climb the global leaderboards!
The game is part of Atari's Recharged series, which aims to bring a range of the publisher's '70s and '80s hits to modern platforms. Titles already released in the range include Centipede, Asteroids and Black Widow.
Atari’s Recharged series breathes new life into the most seminal fan-favorites of the 1970s and ’80s while keeping true to what made those games undeniable smash-hits — simple and engaging gameplay, accessible pick-up-and-play controls, and plain ol’ high score-chasing fun. The Atari VCS version of Breakout: Recharged features exclusive content and is optimized for play with the all-new Atari Wireless Classic Joystick.
