Recall that Asteroids: Recharged was presented along with two other projects from the Recharged line – Black Widow: Recharged and Breakout: Recharged – and was expected to be released from October to December this year.

As it became known, Asteroids: Recharged will go on sale on December 14 this year for PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch, and Atari VCS.

The reissue will offer tighter graphics, modernized controls, high frame rate support and features for co-op play on PC (Steam Remote Play) and PlayStation (Share Play).

The original Asteroids came out in 1979 and was one of the first to include a leaderboard with initials. The project became the best-selling slot machine in 1980, and the Atari 2600 version has sold over 3 million copies.
