Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is making its way to the Switch in the not-too-distant future, and it's going to include some new content along with a revamp of the original game. In an interview with Nintendo Life, developer Jose Sanz discusses how the team has been working hard to bring in their own flavor while still retaining what made the original great.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World was very unusual, but I think it still works today and it's fun. It's true that there are some mechanics that are obsolete or not seen so frequently anymore, but these are also things that make Alex Kidd unique! If we improve that, we still have a very good game on our hands.
