To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Delphine Software's Flashback (Flashback: The Quest for Identity in the U.S.), Ubisoft is releasing an HD remake for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

The game is not a simple up-res version of the original, but rather a remake via the Unreal Engine. The trailer below lists developer VectorCell, which is an independent company formed by Flashback creator Paul Cuisset – so you know that this version of the title is getting some love.

This new Flashback takes the original's 2D side-scrolling action and renders it in 3D while still keeping the spirit of that game.

Ubisoft has not provided a price or exact release date for the game. It is, however, tabbed to be "coming soon."

Although not directly related to Flashback, if you liked Delphine's other action side-scroller from the 90s – Out of this World – check out my Moments feature on that title.
