Mini Review: Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX (PS4) – Who Thought This Game Needed a Remake?

That was until a remake of the original game, Miracle World, was announced seemingly out of nowhere.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a full remake of the original game on modern platforms with new levels, modes, and accessibility options to make it more appealing to newcomers and veterans alike.
