Recent Articles: Jak and Daxter Collection
Naughty Dog has confirmed that the much beloved duo of Jak and Daxter will be hitting the PS Vita this Summer in the form of the same HD collection that was released back in February on the PS3.
The Jak and Daxter Collection will include the following legendary adventures: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3.
The HD remakes of these classic titles will also incorporate some of the Vita’s major features, such as the touchscreen being used for minigames. The collection will even come with a separate set of Trophies from the PS3 version, so that the Trophy hunters out there (you know who you are) get to go for that Platinum on the Vita too, Huzzah!
The Jak and Daxter Collection will be launching on the Vita this June for $29.99.
Sony has pulled out another of their patented “kitchen sink” updates of the PlayStation Store. This week sees the release of three major PSN games (the long-awaited Simpsons Arcade Game, hitman game Shank 2, and multiplayer shooter Gotham City Impostors) as well as all three games from the Jak and Daxter Collection.
Speaking of the Jak and Daxter Collection, the complete package is available from the Full PS3 Games section as well as the sexually charged Catherine, tennis sim Top Spin 4, and the bricktastic Lego Pirates of the Caribbean.
Rounding out the new releases is the PS2 Classic SpongeBob SquarePants: The Movie. And don’t forget that The Simpsons Arcade Game is free to PlayStation Plus subscribers (as well as Final Fantasy V). Oh, and the first episode of “The Tester” season three is now available.
Yup, kitchen sink time. You can find out more about all these new releases after the break. And for a complete listing of all of this week’s new game add-ons, head over to the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Some ambitious games that have been a long time coming will be available in stores this week.
Chief among them is Resident Evil Revelations, Capcom’s second zombie-killing game for the 3DS, but the first to tell a new tale in the franchise’s lengthy saga.
Also available is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the first game from Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios. The game has been in development practically since Mr. Bloody Sock retired back in 2007. It’ll be interesting to see what his dream team of developers came up with when it releases for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this week.
2K’s The Darkness II (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) is neither the start of a new franchise nor is it the latest entry in a long-runner. But fans have been clamoring for a sequel to the 2007 shooter and now they’ll finally get it.
If you prefer your “new” games in collected form, two new ones round this week’s major releases: the PS3-exclusive Jak and Daxter Collection (which brings together the first three games in the series) and the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition (which collects the main game and all of the DLC in a PC, PS3, or Xbox 360 package).
You can check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
After confirming its existence a few weeks ago, Sony has gone and officially announced the Jak and Daxter Collection will be released for the PS3 in 2012.
Scheduled for release in February, the compilation is being developed by Mass Media, who are working closely with original Jak and Daxter developer Naughty Dog. As expected, the collection will include Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3 in glorious high definition. You can also expect full stereoscopic 3D and Trophy support.
Sony seems determined to bring every classic PS2 game to the PS3 in a shiny, new HD edition. And the latest franchise to get the call is Naughty Dog’s platforming opus, Jak & Daxter.
After appearing on the website of the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (Germany’s answer to the ESRB), Sony told IGN that the Jak & Daxter Collection is in development for the PS3 and that they’ll “have more news to share shortly.”
Six games in the Jak & Daxter series have been released for the PS2 and PSP since Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy first appeared on the PS2 in 2001. The game’s European title is Jak & Daxter Trilogy, so I think that gives us a pretty good idea which games will be inlcuded in the Jak & Daxter Collection.
