Ubisoft has officially announced that a HD remake of the hit platformer Flashback will be coming to PSN and Xbox Live later this summer.
One of the most popular action platformers of the 16-bit era, Flashback was developed by the acclaimed French game designer Paul Cuisset and his studio Delphine Software International.
After finding big success on the Amiga, Flashback was ported for a raft of formats and received a 3D sequel in Fade To Black in 1995.
A third game, Flashback Legends, was in development for the Game Boy Advance but never saw release as a result of the studio falling into financial trouble and subsequently closing in 2002.
Developed by Cuisset’s new studio VictorCell, and with input from members of the original team, this polished retelling will be built using the Unreal Engine, have new voice acting, a ‘beefed up’ story and plenty of new tricky platforming/shooting sections we’re sure.
