The jan-ken master of the Master System has returned! Today marks the release of Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, both a remake and return of the 1986 original. Merge Games has been hard at work putting this one together to the point they’re working in new, extra content. That means reworked bosses, new levels, and even some fresh Alex Kidd lore.

Have a look at the launch trailer to see what it’s like when a retro hero gets their long overdue shot:

It’s not often a character from Sega’s earlier days gets a new lease on life, so even if you opt not to pick this one up yourself today (with a 10% launch discount at that) consider having a celebratory rock, paper, scissors tournament with some friends to make the occasion. Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is available today – now when’s Ristar’s turn?
