The sequel to the cinematic action platformer Flashback 2 was first teased in 2021 and was set to be released the following year. However, it saw a delay, and its release date was pushed to 2023. Finally, three decades after Conrad B. Hart’s first adventures, Flashback 2 is set to be released this November. Along with the announcement, a gameplay trailer is released to set the tone for the upcoming title.
The game developers dropped a teaser last year, but it did not reveal anything about the sequel. However, the latest gameplay trailer rectifies that oversight by providing a closer look at the 3D upgrades, snippets of some of the shooter combat in action, and a better idea of Conrad B. Hart’s brand new design.
The sequel picks off in the 22nd century and reveals that the United World spans the entire Solar System, but its peace is at risk by the Morph invasion carried out by the dreadful General Lazarus. Conrad B. Hart embarks on yet another thrilling adventure, this time around, in search of his lifelong friend Ian. However, he isn’t alone in fact, he is backed by his new allies.
Although a remake of the original Flashback was released back in 2013, it fell short of expectations and failed to capture what made the original such a great title. This time around that won’t be the case because the original creator, Paul Cuisset, has managed to assemble a team of former veterans, including game designer Thierry Perreau and Raphael Gesqua, composer of the famous Amiga soundtrack.
Flashback 2 is set to release this November for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It will be available in both Limited and Collector Editions, with the former offering more perks.
