I don’t think I’ve ever actually played Missile Command, but it’s such an iconic game I’ve definitely heard of it. According to TouchArcade, a version of the classic missile defence game was released in 2008 along with the first wave of mobile apps, and now Atari are bringing it back once again to celebrate the series’ 40th birthday.

Missile Command: Recharged is slated to be a free-game supported by ads, with a one-time IAP to unlock everything for free. Notable changes include new special abilities and power-ups, a progression system, leaderboards and new retro art-style. It’s being developed by the team at Nickervision. There’s even an AR feature.

Pre-orders are already live on both iOS and Android. A ‘Spring’ release date has been mentioned, but it’s worth noting that the App Store has a release date of March 26th listed, so we’ll see.
