Looks like Alex Kidd in Miracle World is getting a modern DX treatment. Promises new graphics, modes and levels and seems interesting so far. I thought Sega would never go back to the Alex Kidd franchise, but perhaps the success of things like Sonic Mania and Streets of Rage 4 have made them realise there is value in their older ip.

Should be interesting to see how this turns out. I always found the character handling and collision detection to be a bit off, so hopefully they tighten that up a bit. It'd be nice as well to see losing paper/scissors/stone not be fatal and instead just trigger a regular boss fight.
Hopefully raises the profile of the SMS a bit as well, given how US-centric the gaming community is - pains me to see UK Youtube channels talking about the Sega Genesis, for example. It'd be nice to see more SMS re-releases and maybe this will help if it turns out to be any good.
Oh Alex! I knew you'd be back, I'm just glad it's not in pog form. It's a miracle but then we're starting to see lots of revivals. Hopefully we get an AK in Shinobi World.
Apparently it's being published by PQube, which is good news as far as physical collectors are concerned. I predict both a standard and big box collectors edition will be available from signatureeditiongames when the time is right.
