Does Sega's original mascot go out with a bang or a whimper?

Poor Alex Kidd. The pint-sized, big-eared wonder never really caught on as a mascot, although it was not through lack of trying on Sega's part. Alex appeared in a number of games featuring vastly different forms of gameplay and, with this last throw of...

It was only a matter of time before this would be announced. I'll stick to regular Shinobi thank you very much.

I was pretty much let down by Miracle World, and The Enchanted Castle was quite underwhelming. I hope this is one Alex Kidd title I'll actually like.

There are 5 Alex Kidd Releases on the Sms:

The other 2 Sms titles not released on the vc or on a coming soon list is Alex Kidd: BMX Trial (Japan Only), and Alex Kidd: High-Tech World (not released in Japan since the original version of the game is called Anmitsu Hime in Japan).

Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is better than Alex Kidd: High-Tech World. Alex Kidd: High-Tech World is one of the worst Sms games I ever played.

About time, this game I really cannot wait for. It will be very good.

It's suppose to be the best installment in the series.

I mean, the game looks good; but does it play good?
Because I'd really like to play one Alex Kidd game that I can go back to every now and then. :(

Well, Miracle World is the best in the series, and it you don't like it,then you're pretty much doomed to never like Alex Kidd (there is a very small glimmer of hope though.)
@SSBF: Best in series? That doesn't comprehend. In fact, here's how I evaluate the series.
Miracle World: Got the formula right. Paper Rock Scissors doesn't make it a bad game 'cause it requires no luck whatsoever.
Lost Stars: A very boring platformer.
Hi-Tech World: Like 7ht lutz said, one of the worst MS games.
BMX Trials: Only one I've never played.
Enchanted Castle: Went back to MW formula but was plagued with bad controls and awful collision detection.
Shinobi World: Poor man's ripoff of Shinobi.

Nah, this is a great one. This one and Miracle World are the only Alex Kidd games that are really good.

I'm not a big fan of Alex Kidd games, but if I did download one this would be it.
