Black Widow: Recharged Asteroids: Recharged Breakout: Recharged

Atari has announced that Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Black Widow, and Gravitar: Recharged have been updated with new content on Switch.

Starting today, players can access bonus challenge levels that were previously only available to owners of the Atari VCS. The stages, which present the highest level of difficulty, offer new challenges to existing players and an added value to anyone purchasing the titles for the first time. Arcade Mode also now provides three lives instead of one, just like the coin-op arcade versions they are based on. Finally, Black Widow: Recharged now has an Arachnophobia Mode, which turns the spider into a frosty snowman, poised to shoot snowflakes in lieu of webs.

Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Black Widow, and Gravitar: Recharged are all currently available on the Switch eShop.
