Merge Games and Jankenteam have bumped the release date for Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX to June 22. The title was previously pencilled in for a June 24 release for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World is the platforming game for a generation of gamers who crew up in the 1980s, with the original classic launching in 1986 for the Sega Master System. Yes, Sega used to make consoles — before poor marketing and something called the PlayStation forced them to go software-only.
So, what does this latest Alex Kidd game offer? Well, apart from all the content see in the 1986 title, it also launches the series into a new generation, with “striking art, improved boss fighters and different modes!” Players will also encounter new stages, that are said to expand on the lore of the original game.
Elsewhere, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX also includes a wealth of improvements to general combat and movement, plus new menus systems. There’s also a Boss Rush mode that does exactly what it says on the tin.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is out on June 22, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Switch, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.
