Flashback Reimagined

image6One of the most stunning games of the 90’s “Flash Back” is returning with a whole new and improved graphical overhaul.

The original game featured some truly amazing animation which saw the lead character Conrad, leaping about and climbing in what seemed to be almost life like graphics.

The game was a strange mix of platforming action, mixed in with some shooting and puzzles to solve which was nicely tied in with the beautiful Sci Fi story line.

Ubisoft have said that this new version of Flashback is a re-imagining, not a reboot: ‘The original Core-Team revamped their own creation, leveraging the best of today’s technology while remaining true to the classic side-scroller that set the standards of the genre in the 90?s.’

Flashback will be heading to XBLA and PSN later this year.

  1. Interesting. I played this on the SNES and one thing I remember about it was the atmosphere and generally un-rushed pace. The trailer makes it seem quite action packed and bombastic so hopefully they have retained the ‘flavour’ of the original.

    Hmm could go either way this one. Hopefully the excellent game play of the original is left mostly alone. I kind of miss the syilized look of the original but looks interesting….

  3. […] We first told you about this exciting new remake back in April. […]
