Alex Kidd is one of my earliest console gaming memories, and I was so obsessed with it I used to bug my parents to rent a Sega Master System for the weekend just so I could play it. So I am keeping a very close eye on the upcoming Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake.

It’s coming out in June on PC, both PlayStations and both Xboxs and the Switch. And it...looks really good? The Jan-ken-pon sections in particular look great, and when I had to look up how to spell that properly I also saw that there hasn’t been a new Alex Kidd game since 1990, so I am pretty damn excited to play this.

Fun fact: I learned the word “Ziggurat” from this game.

For those who aren’t aware, this was originally a fan project. Sega caught wind of it and decided to let the devs continue to work and it while Sega would officially release it as a remake.
