Inspired by the original game which debuted in arcades in 1983, and then followed on the Atari 7800 in 1986, Food Fight sees players take on the role of Charley Chuck, a boy whose desire for ice cream sees him fall into trouble with a gang of mischievous chefs - Angelo, Oscar, and Zorba. Players must utilize speed and cunning to avoid enemies, or choose a different route and engage in intense open combat where the food does all the work! It's a satisfying battle of condiment splats, entree explosions, and succulent shrapnel.

Food Fight launches first on the Atari VCS - the iconic gaming brand's first new home gaming and entertainment device in 40 years - with game content exclusive to the platform. Food Fight is also the first example of Atari's recently-announced refocus on premium PC and console games. Additional game details and assets will be released within the coming months.
