Flashback, the classic platform adventure game with over 2.2 million units sold, is back on Nintendo Switch!

2142. After fleeing from a space ship but stripped of all memory, the eminent scientist Conrad B. Hart, awakens on Titan, a colonised moon of the planet Saturn, his enemies and kidnappers snapping at his heels. He must find a way back to Earth while defending himself against the dangers he encounters, and unravel an insidious extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet...

Rediscover this classic, consistently ranked among the top 100 games since its release 25 years ago! One of the first games to use motion capture technology for more realistic animations, it has fully hand-drawn backgrounds and a genuinely gripping science-fiction storyline.

FLASHBACK 25TH ANNIVERSARY stays completely faithful to the 1992 original, remastered by Paul Cuisset himself. See if you're up to the challenge with all the demanding gameplay of the period!

The 25th Anniversary Edition comes in a Collector's Box and includes a retro style instruction booklet, digitally remastered soundtrack, exclusive numbered metal card and a retro cartridge style metal case.

Game Features:

- Revamped graphics
- A completely remastered soundtrack
- A "Rewind" function, with limits corresponding to the level of difficulty
- A new save-game system
- The original 1992 version of the game!

Can't wait til they release the Frogger / Pong Super Deluxe 2018 HD bundle edition for 50 quid.

Nah I’m not having this as a deal - £32 for nostalgia and some tat? I bought this on iOS for £1.99 a few years ago!

Very nostalgic, think I had this on the Amiga a600 iirc. Seemed so advanced at the time
£32 + £250 for a new switch when you throw your current at the wall in frustration.

heat - seems rude not to order this
If this is the same version the released on the ps3/xbox, its absolutley terrible.

I'm guessing it's the Sega mega drive game (was where I played it).
Wouldn't pay £32 for that again.

This is not the remake!

"The newly announced Switch release is actually based on the Super Nintendo version, which released in 1993. 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."

Didnt know about this game, just looked at a couple of gameplay videos and it looks quite similar to 'Another World'

It was like a spiritual sequel if I remember right.
Think it's the same maker/team that did another world.

An amazing game and huge part of my childhood, really want this.

Just a shame that the SNES version gave him a red shirt instead of white...
Played through this a year or so ago on the Retron 5 having repeatedly failed to get past the first 5 minutes in my youth. An excellent game for its time.
It should be a full European and UK release, the USK logo is standard for box sets as they are the same SKUs distributed throughout Europe. It's also been up on Amazon Spain for the last week, you're showing a Spanish promo shot if you hadn't noticed! There's a French promo shot on Amazon too.

Weird that they're giving us a US style SNES cartridge!

UK is getting the 25th Anniversary edition mate. But what you say is likely to be correct for the Europe according to evidence.

What is clear at the moment is that everything is unclear for the time being.

I'm not sure what you mean, they are all the 25th Anniversary Edition: ShopTo, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain etc. It's just the one SKU produced for Europe and the UK. I'm guessing there will probably be a standard edition but that hasn't been listed anywhere yet.

Yes, but not the collector's edition. That is what I understood so far. The CE is not going to be for the UK and Shopto's listing is also showing a German cover. Unless otherwise they just couldn't find a UK version image.

This is not the remake!

OK, its not the worst version.

actually based on the Super Nintendo version


Its the second worst version.

To be fair, the second worst version is a competent version.

You have an opinion and you are entitled to it. I cannot add anything further. All I can do is to try to clarify.

The 25th Anniversary Edition is the Collector's Edition and it will come to the UK, it would be bizarre for it only to be a German, Spanish and French release.

It's not a German cover but a European cover (reverse will have all languages), as I said for boxsets UK shares the same SKUs with Europe therefore the the USK German rating is usually on there. A bit confusing, I know.

If that is the case then I apologise. I was confused. But it is even better then if you order and get the UK copy.

Comes with the original version??

Shut up and take my Nintendo eShop credit!

Thanks for the heads up about this I was very close to putting in my pre-order from Amazon Germany.

Leave beautiful childhood memories behind, trying to relive them is always disappointing
as much as i love this game its way over priced, it should really be around a £10 at most
Another 25th Anniversary cash grab.

(I'll still buy it)
Got in my pre-order but glad this is not until June so I can buy Thimbleweed Park in a couple of days from Limited Run Games and all those Totaku coming next month!
Put my pre-order in with them and have also emailed them asking them to confirm it's the Collectors Edition
