Sega’s Former Mascot Returns in Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX

During IGN’s Summer of Games livestream, Sega announced Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, a remake/remaster of the original 1986 Sega Master System game.

Before there was Sonic the Hedgehog, there was Alex Kidd. While the series has basically been dormant since Sonic took over, Kidd has stayed in the minds of old-school Sega fans for years. Though he has made cameo appearances in a number of Sega games over the years, he hasn’t had his own game since 1990.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX brings Kidd’s 1986 adventure to the modern-day with overhauled graphics, new levels, new modes, and alternative boss battles. Those who would prefer to experience Kidd the way they did on the Master System will be able to in the game’s “retro mode.”

The original game saw Kidd taking on the evil Janken the Great and attempting to save Prince Egle and Egle’s fiancée Princess Lora. Kidd takes on bosses at the end of stages by playing “jan-ken-pon,” or rock-paper-scissors.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’re looking forward to revisiting Sega’s old flame when it is released.
