'Another World' (ALL) Comes to Nintendo Switch Next Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 8, 2018 @ 9:45 a.m. PST

Another World is a remake of the 1991 classic sci-fi platformer/action adventure game.

Another World tells the remarkable tale of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young and rather talented physicist. While working on an experiment using a particle accelerator, a lightning bolt strikes his lab, causing an unforeseen particle fusion. The accompanying explosion opens a hole in the fabric of space and time, teleporting Lester to a barren, alien planet. Players lead Lester through a series of dangerous environments, battling alien soldiers and wild creatures while solving unique and creative puzzles in order to survive.

Dotemu has worked closely with original creator and industry visionary Eric Chahi on the Switch version, staying true to the original feel of the game and its deep sci-fi universe setting. Chahi describes the inspirations, processes and even doubts as the original game was under development, and shares original sketches and illustrations related to the creation of Another World as he defines what drew him to a sci-fi setting.


Featuring a compelling story and captivating adventure, players will be able to switch back and forth in real time between the original and HD graphics and choose from three difficulty modes. Another World will be showcased at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in the GDC Play Lounge (PS4253), located in the North Hall, Wednesday through Friday during show floor hours.

Also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World in Japan, Another World made its debut in 2012 in the prestigious MoMA in New York and was among the first 14 games selected by the museum for having made history. It is considered one of the most essential video games ever made, inspiring numerous video games creators of outstanding titles such as Ico and Metal Gear Solid.

Another World will release in five languages (English, French, Italian, German and Spanish), scheduled to come to Nintendo Switch late next month.
