Flashback – Collectors edition coming to Switch

Flashback, the classic platform adventure game with over 2.2 million units sold, is coming back, and this time with a nifty 25th Anniversary collectors edition for the Nintendo Switch!
For those of you that don’t follow gaming actively, Flashback was one of the first games to use motion capture technology for more realistic animations. This time around the game has been polished with fully hand-drawn backgrounds and a genuinely gripping science-fiction storyline.

While in keeping in the trend with many current re-releases Flashback will also include a ‘rewind’ function to eliminate some of those frustrations of the instakill sections.
So here’s what’s been added to the 25th Anniversary edition:


  • New save-game feature
  • Includes the original 1992 version of the game!
  • 25th Anniversary Editon comes in a Collector’s Box
  • Also includes a retro style instruction booklet
  • Digitally remastered soundtrack
  • Exclusive numbered metal card
  • Retro cartridge style metal case

Flashback will be released on June 19, 2018.
