Alex Kidd, the protagonist of a host of SEGA platform games during the 1980s, is returning to modern consoles.

As revealed at yesterday’s IGN Expo, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX will launch for PC, Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation. The original game was released in 1986 for the SEGA Master System, and was built into many consoles so that it would play even if no cartridge was inserted.

In its first incarnation, Alex Kidd in Miracle World was a classic platform game that pre-dates SEGA’s best-known hero Sonic the Hedgehog. The player controls the titular Alex, and must use his punching and jumping abilities to destroy enemies, break rocks, and collect money. At the end of many of the game’s levels, the player must take part in a round of rock-paper-scissors against in-game enemies in order to progress further.

The updated version will include the original boss fights, dialogue, and levels, but with improved graphics, movement mechanics and menu systems. Additional new levels and story elements will also be included.

A release date is as yet unconfirmed, but you can wishlist the game on Steam now.
