SEGA AGES Alex Kidd in Miracle World to release on February 21st in Japan

SEGA AGES branding is steadily continuing it’s releases, and this month it’s the Master System/SEGA Mark III classic title Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Titled SEGA AGES Alex Kidd in Miracle World, players take control of the titular Alex Kidd as they travel through 12 levels punching through blocks using his “Shellcore” martial arts and riding weird contraptions such as the Peticopter. What sets Alex Kidd apart from similar games like the Super Mario Bros. titles is the inclusion of item management, where you can find money hidden in blocks and buy items from shops to help Alex on his adventure.

The SEGA AGES version however adds new features into the mix, such as FM sound compatibility, the usage of a previously unused song, and new cutscenes. This version will also include new features for beginners, such as the ability to rewind time by 5 seconds and the option to continue after losing all your lives. It’s officially slated for a February 21st release date in Japan, or next Thursday as of this writing, with the price of ¥925 (roughly $8.50). It’s unknown when SEGA AGES Alex Kidd in Miracle World will receive a release outside of Japan, but the Nintendo Switch is region-free for those that lack patience, so give this Master System classic a try this Thursday if you have the spare yen.

    I think that unused song is the sukopako motorcycle song, as it’s not used in the Japanese version of the game, where the usual music plays instead.

    switch exclusive again? Lol
    Another missed opportunity for Sega.

    And your going to continue to see these missed opportunities, because they are all going to be exclusive to the switch. But I get your point.
    Sega software shouldn’t be on Nintendo hardware really but as an exclusive it’s not right.

    And yet again no Steam release…

  5. Segas never really done much with the 3DS. I mean sure, they added some Game Gear games and remastered Sega games. But other than that nothing really that appealing. The only games Ive bothered to purchase is Sonic the Hedgehog (Game Gear Version), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD, Shining Force, and Mean Bean Machine. There is just a lot of options for Sega fans in 3DS’s virtual Console. A shame it is though. Now people like me who dont own a Switch are left with mainly crummy Game Gear games.

  6. I mean there is not a lot of options in 3DS’s virtual console. Fyi
