During the IGN Summer Of Gaming 2020 digital event, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX was announced. The SEGA Master System game that was built into the console (as opposed to being on a separate cart) is being given a much-needed and very welcome remaster thanks to Merge Games. There has not been an Alex Kidd game in nigh 30 years so it is a welcome return for SEGA’s nostalgic platformer. The DX version will be available multi-platform, including the Nintendo Switch, and will have new visuals (as well as a retro mode), new levels, game modes, and alternate boss battles.
