Flashback the classic action-adventure game that has consistently ranked in the best 100 games of all time will be available on the Nintendo Switch from June 2018. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo version of the game, Microids are releasing a Collector’s edition in Europe and Australia.
If you’re not familiar with the story of Flashback, it all takes place in 2142. Playing as Conrad B. Hart, and stripped of your memory after fleeing a space ship, you awaken on Titan, one of the moons of Saturn. With his kidnappers hot on his trailer he has to find a way back home to Earth, survive the dangers and thwart the fiendish alien plot that threatens to destroy your home.
Flashback was created by Paul Cuisset, one of the most prolific French creators of video games in history. Co-founder of Delphine Software, he has been part of the production team on famous titles such as Future Wars, Operation Stealth, Cruise for a Corpse, Moto Racer and Darkstone.
Flashback already holds the World record as being the top-selling French video game in the world, in 1992. So it’s no wonder that a Collector’s Edition is being made available. The Collector’s Edition includes the game in physical edition, a retro cartridge style metal case, an exclusive numbered metal card, a 24-page retro-style instruction booklet, and the digital soundtrack (remastered version).
Nintendo Switch owners will be able to choose between the original 1993 gaming experience and the modern mode, that has all the benefits of the Nintendo Switch.
- Post-FX graphic filters,
- Completely remastered sound and music,
