Alex Kidd In Miracle World Is Getting The DX Treatment

Jan Ken Pon!

Old-school SEGA fans have been a little spoilt lately. With games like ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove and Streets of Rage 4, we’re slowly seeing some of our favourites stage beautiful, HD comebacks. While Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX isn’t a totally new game like those two examples, it looks like a lovingly-crafted update to quite literally the first video game I ever played.

Published by Merge Games, developed by Jankenteam and announced at IGN’s Summer of Gaming 2020 event, the game is a high-definition remaster of the classic Master System pack-in. More than just that though, it includes brand new levels, alternate boss fights and modes and (of course) a ‘retro’ option to switch back to the original presentation. I can honestly say that I can still know every level in this game like the back of my hand, so knowing the team are shaking things up with extras and tweaks is exciting.

Check out the trailer below:
