Flashback 25th Anniversary for Switch Launches June 7
Microids will release Flashback 25th Anniversary for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on June 7, the company announced.
A collector’s edition will be sold in Europe and Australia (folks in the US can import from Amazon Germany here), which certainly makes the €39.99 price tag from Amazon Germany more justifiable. Included inside is a physical copy of Flashback 25th Anniversary, a retro cartridge style metal case, an exclusive numbered metal card, a 24-page retro-style instruction booklet, and the digital soundtrack (remastered version).
Flashback on Switch will let players choose between the original 1993 gaming experience and “Modern” mode. The new mode has post-FX graphic filters, completely remastered sound and music, a brand new “Rewind” function that’s variable according to the level of difficulty, and tutorials for those who need a boost.
Microids has provided the following overview of the game’s story:
2142. After fleeing from a space ship, but stripped of all memory, the young scientist Conrad B. Hart awakens on Titan, a colonised moon of the planet Saturn. His enemies and kidnapers are snapping at his heels, and he has to find a way back to Earth while warding off the dangers that beset him and unravelling a fiendish extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet…

This port is being handled by Paul Cuisset, one of the game’s original creators, and Microïds, who have previously released Gear.Club Unlimited on the system. The Switch port’s release will also help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Flashback’s release on the SNES, and will be receiving a limited physical collectors edition.
Flashback 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will include the base game, a cartridge-style metal case, an exclusive metal card, a 24 page game manual, and a digital copy of the game’s remastered soundtrack. Unfortunately, this physical release is currently only confirmed for Europe and Australia.
