Flashback Reboot Trailer Sets Up The Plot

Flashback's impending reboot is out next week on XBLA, offering a retooled fully-voiced new version and the 1992 original in a single package. This new trailer asks, "do you remember," which is terrifically funny on numerous levels given the conspiracy-meets-amnesiac storyline.

We had mixed feelings about VectorCell's remake in our Flashback hands-on preview, suggesting that the new voice acting might do more harm than good. Still, we're not afraid of change, and the graphics do a great job of bringing familiar environments into the 21st century. "Time is an illusion" anyway.

Three trailers on the trot? Welcome to Gamescom week...

I'll probably be getting it. I wouldn't have considered it if the original wasn't included with it though.

I just can't decide if I want to relive the original first or go straight to the remake.

Yes, time is an illusion - lunchtime doubly so (according to Douglas Adams).
