Tech News: ‘Alex Kidd in Miracle World’ remake gets a release date of June 24th.
Sega, Merge Games and Jankenteam have announced a release date for their remake of the classic Master System platformer Alex Kidd in Miracle World. The game will arrive on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PC (via Steam and Epic stores) and Nintendo Switch on June 24 and costs $ 20.
It looks like Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX will offer more than just an updated art style. There will be new levels and modes (including a boss race), along with “smoother controls” and a remastered soundtrack with fresh music. If you have nostalgic cravings while playing and want the original version of the game, good news! You can switch between high definition graphics and classic eight-bit style whenever you want.
The latest trailer makes the game look like a faithful update – thankfully, it retains the rock-paper-scissors portion of the 1986 original. Playing Alex Kidd in Miracle World is one of my earliest gaming memories, so I don’t see the time to try this game in a few months.
