It’s been easy to revisit early Super Mario games, but what if you were one of those rebels who had a Sega Master System and played Alex Kidd instead? Don’t worry, there’s a nostalgia trip in store for you as well. Jankenteam and Merge Games have unveiled Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, a revival and expansion of the 1986 classic coming to PC, PlayStation, Switch and Xbox. This is considerably more ambitious than the straighforward, years-old Wii release. There are modernized graphics, new levels and modes (such as a boss rush) and more story elements.
The developers also promise tweaks to combat, movement and boss fights in the updated version, although you can stick to a Classic Mode with familiar mechanics if you’d rather not mess with Sega’s original formula.
