New York, NY (February 11, 2022) - Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — today invites players to breakout of the mold with the explosive new release of Breakout: Recharged on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Atari VCS, and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store). A remix on the titular brick-breaking tour de force that rocked arcades of yesteryear, Breakout: Recharged takes everything that was beloved about the ‘70s fan favorite and ramps it up with dynamic, fast-paced gameplay and stylish, neon-synth visuals.

Beyond the impressive visuals and electronic soundtrack, Breakout: Recharged delivers exciting, reimagined gameplay in the form of new boosts, powerups, mind-bending challenge modes! Will you blast your way to victory with the use of the new railgun and homing missiles, or will you keep it classic with the multi-ball? No longer confined to the neighborhood arcade, the new title features global leaderboards as well as local co-op, giving you the chance to secure bragging rights both in your home and internationally.

Games that stand the test of time deserve to be shared with future generations, and that is the area where Atari’s Recharged series succeeds. Beloved by the kids of the ‘70s and ‘80s, the groundbreaking and unforgettable titles receiving the Recharged treatment embody the passion of arcade goers for the modern gamer. To add to the excitement, it seems only fitting that the Atari VCS version of Breakout: Recharged features exclusive content that is optimized for play with the all-new Atari Wireless Classic Joystick.
