The trailer released on YouTube shows off the environments and gameplay. The video ends with an amended release date of June 22.

The Steam page for Alex Kidd gives more details on what is included in the release.

As is common with remasters, there is a button to switch between the remastered visuals and the classic at any time. This will allow players to see the changes and updates in comparison to the original in real-time.

New in the remake is a Boss Rush Mode which allows players to power through the game’s boss fights back-to-back.

“As well as including all of the original classic boss fights, Boss Rush Mode will give you the chance to experience none-stop boss action.”
