Ubisoft have announced a HD remake of the classic action adventure game ‘Flashback’. The remake will be available on Playstation Network and Xbox Live later this year. The original Flashback was released for Amiga in 1992, then later ported to Mega Drive, SNES, CD-ROM and Mac, among other platforms.

The remake has been authorised to celebrate the title’s 20th anniversary. The game has been re-rendered in 3D using the Unreal engine but gameplay will still be in 2D.

The Flashback remake will stay true to the original story arc, as the game’s hero Conrad has to save humanity from an invasion of alien Morphs.

Check out the trailer below:

Looks like a lot of retro fun. Will you be downloading Flashback when it becomes available later this year ?
