Another Code: Recollection, the remastered version of the 2005 Nintendo DS title Another Code: Two Memories, has received positive reviews from gaming publications since its launch last week.

Critics Praise Updated Visuals and Gameplay

The visual upgrades and quality-of-life improvements have made Recollection feel like a new experience, reviewers said:

“It’s remarkable how much better Another Code looks and handles in Recollection. The sharper visuals make exploration more engaging, and the updated control scheme with dual sticks makes the game feel totally modern.” – Eurogamer

“I feared Recollection would feel dated, but the developers have brought this cult classic firmly into 2024 while retaining its inherent charm.” – Nintendo Life

Reviewers said the puzzles and mysteries remained compelling even for those who played the original game. The quality-of-life improvements helped streamline traversal and item management as well.

Strong Narrative and Characters Praised

Critics highlighted the game’s mysterious, emotional story as a major strength. Recollection has improved translation and voice acting, enhancing the impact:

“Its melancholy tale of family secrets still tugs at the heartstrings. I was surprised how invested I became in Ashley and her father’s history.” – Nintendo World Report

Many reviews praised the complex central relationship between Ashley and her aloof father. Their history unravels as Ashley explores her family’s past.

High Scores Across Major Gaming Sites

Recollection has received high review scores so far:

Publication Score
Famitsu 32/40
Destructoid 8/10
Nintendo Life 8/10

Sites have almost universally recommended the title, with nearly all scores falling between 8 and 9 out of 10.

The strong reviews continue the positive reception the original game received in 2005. Destructoid said that Recollection “preserves what made Another Code so special.”

Sales Expected to Exceed Original Game

With glowing reviews and the benefit of the vastly larger Nintendo Switch install base compared to Nintendo DS, analysts expect Recollection to significantly outsell the cult classic original:

“We predict sales of at least 1 million units, compared to around 300,000 copies of the 2005 game. There is pent-up demand for Recollection.” -Mynintendo News

Recollection could introduce a new generation to Another Code. Reviewers have recommended it both for fans of the original and newcomers seeking an emotional, clever adventure.

Future of Franchise Looks Bright

The success of Recollection has renewed hopes for future games continuing Ashley’s story:

“Recollection makes it clear there are more fascinating stories to tell in this world. With quality writing and production values like this, I desperately want to know what happens to Ashley next.” – Nintendojo

Developer Cing went bankrupt in 2010, putting the series on hold. But new studio Wildflower Interactive has taken the reins with Recollection. Their reverential treatment of the original material has fans dreaming of true sequels.

There are rumors Wildflower has already begun planning their next game. Our hope is for an all-new adventure showing the next chapter in Ashley Robbins’ life.
