Atari has announced a new “Recharged” version of the 1982 arcade game, Gravitar. Developed by Adamvision Studios and Sneakybox, the game has yet to receive launch date details, but a Nintendo Switch release has been confirmed. Check out the announcement trailer above and a synopsis of Gravitar: Recharged below.

A lone pilot, far from home, must navigate an abstract universe of uncharted planets and space stations guarded by mysterious, hostile aliens in Gravitar: Recharged.

You must complete missions in each solar system, navigating a variety of challenging environments, each with varying levels of gravity that will test your skills as a pilot. Complete each mission within a solar system and you will be transported to the next through a massive black hole. Will you ever make it home?

With Gravitar: Recharged Atari revisits an incredibly ambitious arcade title. The 1982 original took the rotate, thrust and fire mechanics of Asteroids and Space Duel, combined them with the gravity of Lunar Lander, and added exploration and elements of cave flying. The result was an extremely challenging arcade game that was eventually ported to the Atari 2600.
