Flashback HD looks set for consoles and PC

Original creator said to be behind XBLA/PSN/Wii U update, according to report

Ubisoft looks set to release a HD remake of classic platformer Flashback for Xbox Live Arcade, PSN, Wii U and PC.


French site Gameblog reports that the remake, titled Flashback Origins, will feature completely new visuals and animations. It has also posted what it claims to be the first image of the game.

The creator of the original Flashback, Paul Cuisset, and his French development studio VectorCell are said to be behind the project, with Ubisoft handling publishing duties.

The original Flashback was released for Amiga in 1992, then later ported to Mega Drive, SNES, CD-ROM and Mac, among other platforms.

Ubisoft declined to comment on the report when contacted.
