The lovable duo, Jak and Daxter, are making a return to the Playstation platform as upgraded PS2 classics! Not long after we had a reveal of Crash Bandicoot within Uncharted 4 – Naughty Dog is bringing another set of Playstation Classics to the PlayStation 4 Platform. The dancing duo, seen below, will be making their way to your PlayStation 4 “later this year” and will be bringing the entire Precursor Legacy with them!
While the trailer above doesn’t reveal much – it does show off Jak and Daxter’s signature dance moves! Details from the Playstation blog give us some extra information about what’s coming with the release of 4 games from the Jak and Daxter franchise:
- Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
- Jak II
- Jak 3
- Jak X: Combat Racing
Each of the games that are being re-released will be up-rendered to 1080p and given trophies, much like Dark Cloud 2, and some of the other PS2 Classics that have been released, but different than the upcoming Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy which will be completely remastered for its release. In addition, every game will include Shareplay, Remote Play, and Activity Feeds – so you’ll be able to play remotely on your Playstation Vita should you wish to do so! One thing to note, however, is that Jak X: Combat Racing will not have online features – it will only feature a split screen multiplayer mode, so you won’t be able to battle it out over the Playstation Network with your friends.
Sony and Naughty Dog are promising more details about the upcoming release closer to launch, so we’re sure to see more about what kind of graphical changes we’ll be seeing on our PS4’s very soon! However, the screenshots above should give you a good taste of what’s to come!
