Today it’s a great day in history of video gaming and particularly for SEGA, since today, 30 years ago, on Novembre 1st, 1986 was released Alex Kidd in Miracle World for Sega Master System, the first title of the saga of Alex Kidd that, in the intentions of SEGA should have become the firm’s mascotte against Nintendo’s Mario. The things changed a lot in a couple of years when Sonic became in the collective imagination thye real SEGA emblem.
However Alex, after a few years of decline rose again from the ashes and today is rewarded as one of the most populare SEGA “pure” platform games of all time, being Sonic a bit more “arcade”.
So c’mon Alex, blow out your thirty candles!
