Zordix AB (publ) wants to inform its shareholders and other interested parties that its subsidiary Merge Games has today published a case study with a description of the relaunch of one of the great titles from the 1980’s – Alex Kidd in Miracle World – in a close cooperation with SEGA.
The cooperation between Merge Games and SEGA began after the successful retail distribution by Merge Games of SEGA’s title Streets of Rage 4 together with DotEmu and developer Jankenteam.
The team faithfully recreated all the original content and levels from the original game and combined this with striking new art, improved boss fight systems and different modes. Extra levels were created to expand the lore of the original title to bring a fresh dimension to Alex Kidd in Miracle World.
The game tapped into a niche market of passionate retro gaming fans and after a successful partnership and launch, the game is on track to break 200,000 units sold by Christmas.
“It was a pleasure to work with Sega and Jankenteam reviving this retro classic” said Luke Keighran, Managing Director, Merge Games “The success of Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX has given Merge a blueprint in this niche, and we intend to continue to drive that objective and look at other potential franchises we can resurrect.”
