Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake gets June release date
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, developer Jankenteam's remake of the much-loved Sega Master System classic, will be making its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch on 24th June.

The original movie got a home computer adaptation in 1985 for the likes of the C64 and ZX Spectrum – as well as a later NES game in 1989 – and titles based on the second and third entries in Robert Zemeckis' time-travelling series were released on systems like the Master System and Mega Drive courtesy of Mirrorsoft's Image Works line.
