According to series creator American McGee, the upcoming console release of Alice: Madness Returns will be sold with codes in order to download the original Alice game, which was released on the PC back in 2000.

Speaking to CVG, McGee had the following to say: “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 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 all sounds very good for those who may have not played the original game. Alice: Madness Returns will be released on 14th June on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Update: All of the above has now been confirmed by publisher EA, although those who buy pre-owned copies without a download code will have to purchase Alice for 800 Microsoft Points from Xbox Live or £7.99 from PSN if they wish to play the game.
