Nintendo Switch has allowed to keep the traditional elements that attracted the core fan base while welcoming new players. It has been done by means of a rewind feature that facilitates the use of 'Flashback'. Even though it remains as a simple port of a game that most have already played, it still is worth a ride.

25 years after its original release we still love this cyberpunk adventure. The new filters and rewind options don´t add much to the original, but Flashback didn´t need that kind of improvements. Physical edition is also great.

A great chance to try this retro experience but also a really hard way to introduce ourselves to a time in which one only shot could end the game. Great adaptation work.

Flashback is another classic that lands on the Nintendo Switch and this 16-bit gem brings with it everything that made it a nostalgic piece of gaming, along with some additional new elements. Thanks to its old school gameplay, those who know what Flashback is about are set to become very attached to this re-release, while those less accustomed to its demanding style will face some frustrating difficulties.
