Game Fuel (Charged Cherry Burst) is a Mountain Dew flavor that was officially released in stores on January 14th, 2019. It was first leaked via an Amazon listing on August 12th, 2018, alongside Game Fuel (Charged Berry Blast). Later that week, the listings for the upcoming Game Fuels were later removed from Amazon, before being restored a few months later.
On August 12th, 2018, an online Mountain Dew store was opened to Amazon, which listed two new Game Fuel flavors (without the Amp branding at the time): Game Fuel (Charged Cherry Burst), a cherry flavor, alongside with Game Fuel (Charged Berry Blast), a berry flavor.
On August 16th, 2018, the listings for the upcoming Game Fuel products (at the time missing the Amp branding) were later removed from Amazon. It was claimed that these four Amp Game Fuel flavors were planning to be released in January 2019.
On December 8th, 2018, an online Mountain Dew store was later re-opened to Amazon and opened to Walmart, which listed all 4 Amp Game Fuel flavors and a 4-flavor variety pack for pre-order; Amp Game Fuel (Charged Cherry Burst), Amp Game Fuel (Charged Berry Blast), Amp Game Fuel (Charged Original Dew) and Amp Game Fuel (Charged Tropical Strike). Both listings on the retail sites show an official launch date of January 14th, 2019, proving the aforementioned rumors correct.
On December 21st, 2020, the Official Game Fuel Twitter account announced that there will be special cans of Charged Cherry Burst produced in collaboration with internet personality Dr. Disrespect. The cans had a special design and were given to anyone who purchased a 12-pack of Game Fuel and used Dr. Disrespect's discount code until they were all given out. It is unknown how many of the cans were made, but the cans were all given out within 48 hours of the announcement according to their Twitter. Each can came separate from the order made, and were sent in a special container.
- This is the second Cherry flavored Game Fuel, the first being Citrus Cherry.
- Preordering a 12 pack of the four AMP Game Fuel flavors from Walmart would grant you a beta access code to the video game Tom Clancy's The Division 2, therefore, to an extent, the AMP Game Fuel products promoted a video game. Later, Game Fuel products were used to promote yearly Call of Duty game releases.
