Atari® Announces Missile Command: Recharged as Optimized Launch Title for Atari VCS™ Home Gaming and Entertainment Platform

Pulse-Pounding Re-Imagining of Iconic Arcade Game Missile Command to Launch with Enhanced Atari Wireless Classic Joystick Integration Exclusive to Atari’s New Retro-Inspired, PC/Console Video Computer System

NEW YORK, NY (July 1, 2020) – Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — and indie developer Nickervision Studios are excited to announce today that the most immersive version yet of Missile Command: Recharged™ will release as a launch title on the upcoming Atari VCS™ home gaming and entertainment system in fall 2020. As a reimagined, contemporary take on one of Atari’s most beloved titles, Missile Command: Recharged for the Atari VCS is optimized for the all-new Atari VCS’ Wireless Classic Joystick for a truly unique retro-modern gameplay experience.

How long can you hold off the aerial assault until your domain is decimated? It’s time to take command; launch the counter-missiles!

Based on the 1980 arcade classic, Missile Command: Recharged features a neon-lit retro aesthetic, dazzling new gameplay elements, and deliciously difficult gameplay designed for modern gamers and fans of the original, alike. Players must defend their cities by shooting down an endless barrage of missiles hailing from the sky. Swiftly aimed counter-missiles protect against the onslaught, and unlockable power-ups give players an edge at critical moments. High-intensity arcade action awaits fans of the original Missile Command and a whole new generation of gamers that enjoy fast-paced arcade goodness. Optimization for the Atari Wireless Classic Joystick adds an extra layer of excitement and immersion only available on the Atari VCS.
