    This spring, the beloved old school puzzle platformer, Another World, will be getting a port to the Nintendo Switch. Dotemu, a French company that ports classic PC games to mobile and ported the game to iOS and Android in 2011 will be in charge of the Switch version. A teaser trailer was also released for it.

    And because it is on the switch, they'd charge you 60 bucks for this. Instantly.

    if you get the retail version that's for sure but generally on eshop or eshop only titles is a lot cheaper unless it's a first or 2nd party Nintendo game.

    I doubt that's true for a 1991 game.

    This game sucked 25 years ago. It sucks even more today. It has aged very bad!

    The game is good but I already have it for retro consoles. They should have remastered it instead of porting it.

    Thank you for this. I was confused by the thread title..classic? I didn't know the another world was from 91. Thought it was originally an xb 360 and ps3 title.

    It's only $10 on Steam and $4 on Android. I highly doubt it. At most, $15.

    The virtual boy is "Infamous" not Famous, one is good the other is bad. You want to be the good one right? :ninja:

    I am surprised this isn't the same "20th Anniversary" edition available on Steam, but it might yet turn out to be.

    Oh nice.

    I already live in Another World.
    The game is perfectly suited for that.

    This world's a fair bit more deadly if you don't play it right. As a kid this game felt harder than Battletoads on SNES. It was called "Out of This World" in America AFAIK.

    I actually never played it, only saw gameplay footage.

    My location is reference to Chrono Cross, in fact :P
