The Classic Adventure-Platformer Another World Is Heading to Switch

There are remakes…and then there are classic remakes. While it may not be the most universal name in gaming, Another World — or Out of this World as it was titled in North America — has garnered a fair bit of a legacy since it debuted all the way back in 1991 on the Amiga and Atari ST consoles of all things. Going on to be ported to everything from the SNES and Sega Genesis, to even last-gen consoles like the PS3 and Wii U, Another World is considered one of the best examples of traditional platforming fusing with the cinematic/narrative stylings of adventure games to create a game that excelled on its story-telling not to mention its carefully-chosen color palette and visual aesthetic.

Now the game is getting a second lease of life as it’s been announced that a remake of the early-90’s side-scroller is making its way onto Nintendo Switch this April — developed and published by Dotemu who previously worked on Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Windjammers as well as the remake of Ys Origin. What’s more, players will be able to swap in real-time between the game’s original graphics and the new HD visuals to accompany the three difficulty modes that come packaged upon release. Check out a teaser for the game below.
