The Digital Lounge has just confirmed that the they will be releasing the update of the classic Amiga action game Another World for the PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 on 24th June 2014 when they release Another World™ – 20th Anniversary Edition.
Originally developed for Amiga in 1991 and released on multiple platforms over the years, Another World™ (aka Out Of This World™) has become a major reference for gamers everywhere. More than 20 years later, Eric Chahi’s cult title has not aged a bit, as prove its rich gameplay, its immersive environment and its unrivalled art direction! In 2012, Another World™ made its debut in the prestigious MoMA in New York, among the first 14 games selected by the museum for having made gaming history!
Following the game’s success on iOS, Android, Blackberry and Ouya (co-published with Dotemu), and Steam (co-published with Focus Home Interactive), Eric Chahi and The Digital Lounge have partnered up with Martial Hesse-Dréville to bring this title to the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita for the first time. Thanks to Martial and Eric’s work, Another World is back with a Full HD experience and a gameplay adapted to all these platforms.
In this new version, players will have the opportunity to enjoy the original graphics in FULL HD mode with a single click, listen to fully remastered sounds and SFX or to the original CD audio and soundtrack. In addition, for an even greater experience and added challenges, the game will feature three difficulty levels as well as trophies to unlock.
To celebrate this announcement, we invite the community to watch or rediscover the “making of Another World” video, created in 2006 for the game’s 15th Anniversary, on their YouTube channel.
The game is set to be Cross Buy and Cross Save with trophies shared between platforms although no details have been released yet of pricing or which formats Cross Buy will apply to.
Of interest to Amiga enthusiasts, the actual Amiga development tools used to create the original release of the game were used by the studio in this remake using the same game data from the 1991 original to keep the game as true to the classic as possible. It certainly seems that fans of the original are not going to be disappointed.
