Atari's latest classic revamp has a date
Today, Atari announced that it’s taking aim at an August 17, 2023, release date for its latest Recharged reimagining, Quantum: Recharged.
Coming to Switch, Quantum: Recharged is a pure retro-inspired gem adorned with contemporary flourishes. 40 years after its arcade debut, this Recharged title expands on the classic gameplay with a wider variety of deadly enemies and some new moves to even the odds.
In Quantum: Recharged, players must defeat waves of enemies by encircling and entrapping groups of foes with their ship to create punishing dead zones that destroy them. With no onboard guns, lasers, or missiles to shoot enemies down, Quantum: Recharged challenges players to avoid taking damage and progress through increasingly difficult levels by mastering their ship’s maneuverability.
A fusion of frenetic gameplay and quick problem-solving, Quantum: Recharged is a visual cosmic wonder complemented by an energetic original soundtrack from award-winning composer Megan McDuffie, featuring soaring melodies and infectious beats.
Key Features of Quantum: Recharged Include:
What’s Old is New: Use modernized movesets and powerups to avoid deadly laser attacks from Quarks and stalking Neutrons as you streak across the high-flying battlefield
Mode Madness: Two modes of gameplay — Challenge Mode and Arcade Mode — encourage you to either duke it out across 25 unique levels or just survive as long as you can against progressively dangerous waves of enemies
Power-Ups: Even the odds with randomly spawning perks like unlimited dodges, enemy freezing abilities, and extra life nodes. One powerup might just turn the tide of the battle, but multiple will pack a serious punch!
Co-Op and Leaderboards: Cover more ground with a friend across all modes of play to strategically clear out enemies in tandem and compete in global leaderboards in both Arcade and Challenge modes
