The cinematic platformer Flashback is getting a sequel, as revealed on the Summer Game Fest. It is coming out this winter for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

The first Flashback came out 30 years ago in 1992. It is a sidescroller that focuses on set-pieces and deliberate actions, similar to classics like Prince of Persia and Another World.

Flashback 2 looks to have both 2D and 3D sections.
