Flashback – Collector’s Edition Heading To Nintendo Switch

Classic action-adventure game Flashback is returning and to mark 25 years since the SNES release, will be getting a collector’s edition.

As well as a digital release, the Nintendo Switch Collector’s edition will include:

  • A retro cartridge-style metal case
  • An exclusive numbered metal card
  • A 24-page retro-inspired instruction booklet
  • Digital Remastered soundtrack

For those who missed the game the first time around or are too young to remember it (I unfortunately DO remember the original!), Flashback is often hailed as one of the top 100 games of all times, making various lists over the years. Flashback takes place in the year 2142 on Titan, a colonized moon of Saturn. After fleeing from a space ship, a young scientist named Conrad B. Hart awakes to find he has no memories and is being pursued by enemies for unknown reasons. Conrad battles his way across Titan trying to find his way back to Earth while unravelling an extra-terrestrial plot to destroy Earth!

The Nintendo Switch version of Flashback will allow players to choose between the original experience in all its 16 bit glory, or modern mode which includes:

  • Post-FX graphic filters that players can turn on or off on the fly
  • Completely Remastered sound and music
  • A brand new “Rewind” function, variable according to the level of difficulty
  • Tutorials for those who need a boost!
