Voodoo Vince remaster is coming in April

New Orleans platformer heading to Windows PC and Xbox One

Remastered 2003 platform game Voodoo Vince will be released on Windows PC and Xbox One on April 18, according to an announcement from developer Beep.

A new trailer was released yesterday (above), showing how the game — previously only available on the original Xbox — is looking now that it's been reforged to run with enhanced visuals at 1080p resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 60 fps refresh rate. It's still got that murky look that players will recall from the early part of the last decade.

Starring a voodoo doll and set in a magical New Orleans, the puzzle-platformer was never available via backwards compatibility programs.

Although one of the Xbox's lesser-known exclusive games, it was received reasonably well in its lifetime, garnering average review scores of 73 percent, according to Metacritic. In a 2014 interview, Xbox head Phil Spencer recalled it as his favorite game, because it was the first game he completed with his daughters.
