Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a floor up remake of the beloved Sega Grasp System platformer. Should you had that system again within the ’90s, likelihood is Alex Kidd was constructed into it. It was a beautiful recreation for its time and nonetheless is, although in my view, it does not actually arise as an excellent platformer. However that is okay, as a result of the remake seems prefer it has addressed a whole lot of these 8-bit high quality of life points.
The gameplay trailer above is ample proof: Alex Kidd’s motion appears barely much less stiff than it did again in 1986, although the extent design seems to be largely intact. The rock, paper, scissors boss battles seem to have various variations (much less whimsical hand video games, extra violence), and uh, hopefully that dang bike is a little more manageable this time round. It seems like it’s.
The trailer additionally confirms a June 24 launch date, and for those who fancy, it is accessible to wishlist on Steam. The Steam web page has a number of different tidbits, such because the addition of “brand new levels which expand the lore of Alex Kidd,” which is actually thrilling. There’s additionally a Boss Rush mode for those who actually love rock, paper, scissors, and like different current remasters you may toggle midgame between the brand new remake and the 8-bit unique. What an thrilling time to be alive.
