Classic platform adventure Another World out next week

PS4 version also suggested by "cross buy and cross save" compatibility

The latest HD remake of Another World, a classic platform adventure game originally released in 1991, will be released on current-gen systems on June 25.

Renown designer Éric Chahi and remake programmer Martial Hesse-Dréville confirmed the date via the US PS Blog on Tuesday. Although the announcement doesn't specify platforms, only mentioning the PS4 version in the post itself, the game has previously been confirmed for Wii, 3DS, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and Vita.


Another World tells the story of a scientist who becomes the victim of a failed experiment when he finds himself stranded on a hostile alien planet in a desperate struggle to survive.

Starting life as an Amiga and Atari ST game, Another World was later ported to several other platforms, including SNES, Sega CD, Game Boy Advance, Windows, Mac OS, iOS.

While the new remake - a 20th Anniversary Edition - aims to "deliver the original full HD support up to 2560×1600 resolution, improved colors and animations, re-rendered backgrounds, and the addition of the music from the Sega CD version.

The PlayStation versions will support cross buy, cross platform trophies and cross save functionality.

A recent trailer, likely overlooked due to the barrage of triple-A announcements at this year's E3, is below:
