Originally released back in 1986 and as a built-in game for the SEGA Master System II, it appears that this classic is making it’s way to the PS5 and other modern consoles.
The Master System II was my first console and Alex Kidd was possibly the first game I ever played. So seeing this remake brought back a lot of memories, it was announced last year, but no official release date or console was mentioned. Watch the trailer below:
Company Merge Games is taking on the remake and has even included a retro mode for you to experience the original. Not only that, they’ve added new levels and modes!
It appears German video game ratings company USK has had the game officially submitted to be reviewed, it is also available for a few other consoles: Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (usk.de)
I recall it taking years to finally complete, but back in those days, if you lost all your lives, you’d start from the beginning. I can’t imagine that would be the case now, thankfully!
Do you remember it?
