New release date for Flashback
The European release of the classic action-adventure game is pushed back until June 19th, in both digital and retail versions
Paris – May 31st, 2018: Microïds announces that Flashback’s European release is postponed to June 19th for both digital version and collector’s edition.
In the Nintendo Switch version of Flashback, players will be able to choose between the original 1993 gaming experience and Modern mode, which contains:
- Post-FX graphic filters
- Completely remastered sound and music
- A brand new “Rewind” function, variable according to the level of difficulty
- Tutorials for those who need a boost!
In Flashback, players will awaken to the year 2142. After fleeing from a space ship, stripped of all memory, the young scientist Conrad B. Hart finds himself on Titan, a colonized moon of Saturn. With enemies and kidnappers snapping at his heels, Conrad must find a way back to Earth as he wards off the dangers that plague Titan – all while unravelling a fiendish extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Super Nintendo version, Microïds is releasing a Collector’s Edition, including the game in physical edition, a retro cartridge-style metal case, an exclusive numbered metal card, a 24-page retro-inspired instruction booklet, and the digital soundtrack (remastered version).
Over the last few years, Microïds has built up a solid catalogue of games for PC and next-generation consoles. Its work with well-known studios and authors (Pendulo Studios, Eden Games, Paul Cuisset, Benoit Sokal…) and its adaptations of famous licences (Syberia, Garfield, Agatha Christie, Blacksad…) have enabled it to reach a wide audience. Always at the cutting edge, Microïds released Moto Racer 4, its first PlayStation VR-compatible title, and today is plunging into new territory by developing several titles for the Nintendo Switch (Gear.Club Unlimited, Super Chariot…).
