Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX launches today. The long-awaited comeback of a Sega classic is now available on all systems.
Alex Kidd is a man who has struggled throughout his career. He was first designed by Sega in 1986 to compete with the well-known Nintendo plumber Mario. The worst part is that, with the introduction of the famous Sonic the Hedgehog in the early 1990s, Alex Kidd was completely abandoned by Sega and demoted to a relic of yesteryear.
Well, Merge Games and the Spanish development company Jankenteam have released Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX. This is an upgrade to the first of the adventures featuring this Sega mascot, much to the astonishment of the most seasoned users. Alex Kidd in Miracle World was released in 1986 for the 8-bit Sega Master System.
Given its simple architecture, any fan should know precisely what to anticipate from this upgrade of Alex Kidd in Miracle World, a veteran 2D arcade platformer. Jumps, stages as different as possible, numerous circumstances, the ability to pilot another vehicle, and a very tight challenge level are its main features. It also has updated graphics, and the ability to switch between them at any moment by pushing a button.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is now available on the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It is $34.99 at Amazon.
