We're happy to reveal Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, an updated version of the classic 1986 platformer coming to PC, as well as Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Revealed as part of today's IGN Expo, and published by Merge Games, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX takes all he content and levels from the Sega Master System original, but updates the art style, adds new levels and story elements, alters boss fight systems, and adds brand new modes (including a boss rush mode). Combat, movement mechanics and menu systems have also been tweaked. Check out a first trailer below: [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/10/alex-kidd-in-miracle-world-dx-exclusive-reveal-trailer"] If you'd prefer a taste of the old-school, Classic Mode will let you switch back to a recreated version of the original style, with boss fights, dialogue, levels and systems from the original Master System game. We don't have a release date as yet, but you can wishlist the game on Steam right now. Back when the original game was ported to Wii, we called Alex Kidd in Miracle World "the best platformer ever released for the Sega Master System" in our 9/10 review. There's much, much more to see from today's IGN Expo, and we're running the Summer of Gaming throughout June – here's the Summer of Gaming full schedule. All month, we're supporting some incredibly important causes – the World Health Organisation and The Bail Project – if you are able, help us support them too at donate.ign.com.
