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.
