Being a huge success on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Microïds and game designer Paul Cuisset are pleased to announce Flashback, the classic action-adventure game to come to the North American Market this July.
To get an idea of what the game is like, this is the gameplay for the title
The 1992 blockbuster game really caught the attention of players when it was announced for the Switch, bringing back the nostalgic vibes along with it. The game description goes something like this, “2142. After fleeing from a space ship but stripped of all memory, the eminent scientist Conrad B. Hart awakens on Titan, a colonised moon of the planet Saturn. His enemies and kidnappers are snapping at his heels. He must find a way back to Earth, defending himself against the dangers he encounters and unravelling an insidious extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet… On its 25th anniversary, rediscover this classic, consistently ranked among the best 100 games of all time! It was one of the first games to use motion capture technology for more realistic animations, with backgrounds that were entirely hand-drawn and a gripping science-fiction storyline.”
In the Nintendo Switch version of Flashback, players will be able to choose between the original 1993 gaming experience and Modern mode, which contains:
- Post-FX graphic filters that players can turn on or off on the fly
