Flashback HD remake gets a new story trailer

The quest for identity continues

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer focusing on the story for VectorCell's upcoming 2.5D remake, Flashback HD. Like many fans, I remain on the fence regarding the new direction they've decided to take with this time-honored classic. The original Flashback remains one of my favorite side-scrolling action adventure titles of the mid-90s, and while it's deserving of the attention, it certainly wouldn't be the first time I've been disappointed by someone's attempt to update a game I hold so dear.

Fortunately, as we mentioned back in July, the upcoming release will also include the original game, ensuring that fans of the original will have something to cling to, while giving newcomers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the classic. Not too shabby, right? Flashback HD launches on Xbox Live Arcade August 21st, with both PlayStation Network and PC to follow at a later date.
