In 1987 Sega released the great side-scrolling platform game ‘ Alex Kidd ‘ for the Sega Master System console. Although it was first released in Japan in 1986 but internationally in 1987, it was one of the most well known games as it was also built into most Master System II’s. As such it came as no surprise to us, that when we mentioned it way back in 2018 way before IGN and other sites that this was game was being remade, it set our twitter feed alight with excited retro gaming retweets across the globe.
