Coming to Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch, the cinematic platformer sees Conrad fighting the nefarious Morphs again.
After a delay last year, Microids’ Flashback 2, a sequel to its classic cinematic platformer, has a release month. It’s out in November 2023 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. A new trailer is also available, showcasing gameplay snippets while teasing Conrad’s upcoming battle with the Morphs.
Though the first game was on the 2D plane (which didn’t deter the gorgeous rotoscoped animations), Flashback 2 is more of a 2.5D title. Conrad is still traversing left and right but can also move and down on the Z-axis, depending on the level. Some sections even look like shoot-em-up arenas, which is an interesting change of pace.
The story sees him searching for Ian, venturing through five levels and potentially stopping the Morphs’ next sinister plan. The lighting and effects are on point, and Conrad’s animations look as good as ever.
