​I'm pretty sure this is the 'Amiga' version (well, the 1992 release) and not the 2013 remake.

Does anyone know how much this is on the eshop thanks
Make your money with a good numbered card, I usually get the bad numbers, limited to 1000 I got 998 😔

I don't think that's been 'officially' announced yet.

I also noticed this Syberia 1 & 2 Double Pack has gone up on 365games from the same publisher. Certainly how they should have been released in the first place and I'm sure people who purchased the Syberia titles individually are going to feel a little ripped off.

Ordered. Thanks.
Thanks for the heads up as I had a pre-order with ShopTo :).

Ohh just noticed where you mention "365games do take funds immediately for pre-orders." Decisions decisions
Will there be a "normal", not limited release?

Possibly but not announced anywhere yet. Maybe they will produce some in the future after they sell through the CE but that's just speculation.

As far as I know, the Youtube review you've linked to is the rubbish 2013 rehash and not the same version the OP has shared. This looks to be the original Flashback done ala the recent release of Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap:

"To that end, it can be played it two modes: in its the original SNES guise, or in Modern Mode which contains post-FX graphics filters, remastered sound and music, a "rewind" function, and some handy tutorials."

I loved the Amiga Flashback... might be time to punt for a Switch for this!

Looks like the 2013 version to me.

Watch the video.

I was editing while you were replying. Anyway, If you watch past the first minute you can see it isn't the 1992 version.

I agree. It isn't what your OP says though.
I just bought a CD last night that's limited to 550 copies. Meanwhile this is 'limited' to 30,000. I love you Flashback, but come on now.

Do you know if this contains digital codes, 1 or 2 cartridges?
Thanks op but feel a bit funny them holding my money until July.

​There's no confirmation of that yet but highly likely to be a single cartridge given production costs of Switch carts. I suppose it's possible that they repack existing copies into a double pack though.
WOW, I did not even know this was coming out until now. I still haven't got around to playing Another World on Eshop (is available for 3DS or Wii U) can't remember which.

So it would be a bit much at the price if it was just a re-release of a 16-bit version of the game. But if it is an updated game, which it sounds like it is? that is alright and a good one for the collection.

Fair enough, but we all know that most switch games are just ports from other platforms.

I wouldn't expect wonders from this.
I've got this on the megadrive - Awesome, but I'd struggle to see the incentive of buying this again though....
Another remake, sweet, cheers
Well...that's another Switch game to add to an ever growing list. Awesome.

This could be said for all three current gen.

GTA V is widely regarded as the best game on PS4 and that’s very much last gen.

Its a generation of ports and remasters - Mario Odyssey and Zelda BOTW are two stand out games of the generation.

A this point of release cycle in xbox1 and ps4 - I think the switch is more than holding its own on original content.....

depends ds on your definition of a port and if it should be criticised really.

It’s a different game - this is the retro original and a remaster/retinkering of the original not a reboot...

this game wont be for everyone....It’s a classic.... retro masterpiece....

Not everyone likes the movie “one flew over the cuckoos nest” - yet some will buy it on VHS, then DVD, then Blu-ray.... etc.... some might say some have taste and some don’t...



If you had to google this game and mistake it for a recent use of the franchise name it isn’t for you....

If you played it first time round up and remember it fondly - it will be.
