That's what we like to hear

VectorCell's reimagining of the classic sci-fi platform game Flashback is coming along. With the tweaks being made to modernize the title, this could end up being a disappointment for long-time fans who have the original version burned into their brain more than a decade later despite the team's intention to retain its "heart and soul." We've certainly been burned by remakes before.

It's hard to say for sure at this point, but one piece of reassuring news is that the original Flashback will be included with the remake. So, worst case, we now have an easy way to play that on modern platforms since this is being published across Xbox Live Arcade (August 21), PlayStation Network, and PC.
