Alex Kidd DX

A platforming classic returns to modern consoles with the revival of Alex Kidd on the Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, developed by Merge Games in conjunction with Jankenteam, recreates the Sega Master System mascot. As well as including all of the original content and levels, this reimagining catapults the series into a new generation with striking art, improved boss fight systems and different modes. Extra levels will also be included, expanding the lore of the original title.

The game will also include Retro Mode, allowing players to switch back to a recreated version of the original graphical style, as well as a Boss Rush Mode for nonstop Rock, Paper, Scissors action.

Originally launched in 1986 on the Master System, this is the first Alex Kidd game in more than 30 years.
