The classic Sega Master System platformer Alex Kidd in Miracle World is getting a makeover courtesy of Merge Games and Jankenteam. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC early next year.

As you can see in the reveal trailer above, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is absolutely beautiful. In addition to modern graphics, the game will also feature new levels, alternate boss fights, a boss rush mode, and a classic mode that returns the game to its visual roots. I need it now.

    • Those were the days!
      I tried replaying the original a little while ago and found it a lot more challenging than I remember, as tends to be the case with those older games.

      • yeah funny how all those games we played as children turn out to be some of the hardest we ever play. all the hand holding in modern games.
        never had a master system but did play this game and sonic 1 on my cousins. im down for this.

  • I remember playing it as a kid, never finished it, I think I kept dying at the final boss in the second last level (I think the final level was a lake but I have no idea what is in it)

    and when “Go 8 Bit” was on SBS last year
    One of the challenges was to beat the first level and no one did it so it became an race to the water

  • My childhood just came flooding back.
    So did memories of that damn forest level. and the final castle and if you didn’t use the wand correctly, you feel into the ocean with all the spikes and were….well screwed.
