The IP Lawyers Known as Atari Release “Black Widow: Recharged” for PC, Consoles
On Thursday, the small group of intellectual property lawyers who call themselves Atari announced that retro revival Black Widow: Recharged is now available for pc and consoles.
Developed in collaboration with Adamvision Studios and SneakyBox Studios, Black Widow: Recharged is a sequel to the original twin-stick shooter developed by Atari, and has nothing to do with Scarlett Johanson in a black leather unitard.
Nope. Unlike Hollywood, Black Widow: Recharged features a venomous pest housed in a web infested by all manner of disgusting vermin. Gamers must defend their webs across 30 challenges from these lowly insects, all the while collecting points, cash, and attack power-ups. The game also features online leaderboards, a neon visual aesthetic coupled with a synthwave soundtrack composed by Megan McDuffee (Asteroids: Recharged, Breakout: Recharged).
Black Widow: Recharged is available now on Nintendo Switch, Xbone, SeXbox, PS4, PS5, Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Atari VCS (LOL) for $9.99.
“Atari” would also like you to know that the Atari VCS version of Black Widow: Recharged features exclusive content and are optimized to work with the new Atari Wireless Classic Joystick (TROLOLOLOL).
