Flashback HD remake coming later this year for XBLA and PSN

The Sega Mega Drive/ Genesis classic Flashback will be completely remade in 3D and will be released on XBLA and PSN later this year. The game’s creator Paul Cuisset and his French development studio VectorCell have been working with publisher Ubisoft on the remake, which will feature completely overhauled 3D graphics, full voice acting, new gameplay sections and more.

I love Flashback. I love its so much that I asked Tom Kyzivat to base my Sega Addict chewable on the Mega Drive version’s title screen. So far I am totally in love with this new version of Flashback as shown in the exciting trailer above. So far it looks as though Paul Cuisset is sticking close to his and Delphine Software’s original vision, and isn’t veering the game towards a more “hardcore” market.

But that may just be the nostalgia talking. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
