Great news for Alice fans, American McGee’s Alice (or Alice 1) will be included as part of the Alice: Madness Returns package when the game launches for Xbox 360 and PS3 in June.
The game will also be availble for PC although it sounds like the Alice 1 deal may only apply to the console versions of the game.
This was revealed by American McGee himself in an interview with CVG in which he spoke about the developer’s plans for DLC content (the game will include downloadable dresses with special abilities that you can purchase).
He followed that up by mentioning the Alice 1 deal.
“There will be DLC in the form of dresses that the player can download and Alice can wear. Those dresses come with special abilities and enhance how you play through the game. There’s also going to be a pretty significant release which is the original Alice brought over to the consoles so that a person who’s purchased Madness Returns gets a download code and is able to bring Alice 1 onto their console and play through the entire original game alongside playing Madness Returns.”
This is very good news. I already was highly anticipating this game but haven’t played the original Alice 1. So this cements the deal for me. Definitely looking forward to this!
Here is a look at gameplay footage of Alice: Madness Returns.
The Alice: Madness Returns release date is on June 14, 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
