Flashback trailer hypes for next week’s launch

The tagline for this Flashback trailer is “Do you remember?”, which is quite clever, because yes, I really do, and ha ha, I see what you did there.

Flashback is a remake of the 1992 original by VectorCell, which is a studio led by the game’s original designer, former Delphine Software lead Paul Cuisset, and owned by Lexis Numérique.

If you missed the original, or weren’t yet alive, Flashback is a side-scrolling platform adventure which a sci-fi plot. It was rad in 1992 and having played a preview build a few months back I strongly suspect it’s rad now. It hits Xbox 360 as part of Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade on August 21, and is expected on PC and PlayStation 3 shortly thereafter.
