Elden Pixels, the developer of both Alwa’s Awakening and this year’s Alwa’s Legacy, has announced that they are working on a whole new port of the original game.
So which glossy new console is Alwa’s Awakening coming next? PS5? Rumored Switch Pro? No, there is a 2021 release at NES, Nintendo’s 35-year-old 8-bit wonder.
As Alwa’s Awakening player already knows, this actually makes a lot of sense. The game boasts a retro-style aesthetic inspired by the classic titles available on Nintendo’s early home systems. Now everything has been reworked to work well with NES hardware and a physical cart will be available next year.
You can learn all about the work being done in the video above. There, Brad Smith, the NES developer who is the lead producer of Port, discusses the development process. If you’re very keen on checking this out, sign up for the game’s public beta here.
