Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX Announced


Making its debut during IGN’s Summer of Gaming, the Master System classic makes its return in Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, courtesy of Merge Games and Jankenteam.

This release brings with it a brand new visual style, though a retro mode has been included for those wishing to seek out the classic Alex Kidd experience.
