This collection will be available physically. Limited Run Games previously created a physical version of Another World for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Nintendo Switch back in 2018. This is the first time Flashback and Another World have been available to buy as a twin pack. French studio Delphine Software developed both games, although they both have different project leads.
Another World is a classic cinematic platformer created by legendary game designer Éric Chahi. Originally released in 1991, the game follows young physicist Lester Knight Chaykin as he accidentally transports himself onto a barren alien planet. Lester must navigate the planet’s hostile environments and inhabitants in order to survive and eventually escape. The version you’re getting in the Microids package is the 20th-anniversary edition complete with new HD graphics, new difficulty settings, and a remastered soundtrack.
Flashback launched in 1992. The game is the brainchild of Future Wars creator Paul Cuisset. You control amnesiac Conrad B. Hart, who crash-lands his hoverbike in a jungle on Saturn’s moon Titan. Hart finds a message from himself, telling him to meet a man called Ian in New Washington. If you weren’t a fan of the 2013 Flashback remake, don’t worry – you’re getting the original version here, albeit with some extras. The Microids version contains two extra cutscenes, a replay function, and tutorials to help ease you into the experience.
The twin pack of Flashback and Another World will be available in Europe from November 21st. We don’t yet know if the collection will be coming to the US or other territories physically, so stay tuned for more. In the meantime, you can pick up both games digitally. They’re up for grabs on the PlayStation Store, the Microsoft Store, and the Nintendo eShop.
