Yar you excited?
Earlier this month, Atari announced the next entry in their Atari Recharged series: Yars: Recharged. Yars: Recharged features indie-style gameplay infused with elements of classic arcade gaming and shoot-em-up punctuated by moments of chaotic bullet hell. A visually stunning remake of the cult classic, take command of a Yar warrior and battle through scores of enemy Qotile in an effort to defeat them once and for all!
When it was first revealed, we heard that Yars: Recharged was coming to Switch sometime in Summer 2022. Today gives us a crystal-clear picture, as an Aug. 26th, 2022 release date was announced. That reveal comes with a new gameplay trailer, which you can check out above.
Yars: Recharged thrusts players to the center of a daring attack against the enemy homeworld, guarded by mechanical hives that pulse deadly cannons and emit flurries of swirling missiles. Find pockets of safety amongst the hail of incoming fire, and then dart forward in daring forays to chip away at the enemy’s defenses. Gather enough energy by destroying enemy shields to power up the massively destructive Zorlon cannon, pulsing searing blasts of cosmic energy and annihilating enemies. Yars: Recharged challenges players to remain acutely aware of visual and audio cues that hint at impending danger, and master the smooth flying controls as they navigate increasingly complex levels.
