Jak And Daxter

Four PS2 classics from the classic Jak and Daxter series are coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. The PlayStation Blog confirms this includes the original trilogy of platformers of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak 2, and Jak 3, along with the first re-release of the action racer Jax X: Combat Racing.

All four games will be available to download digitally, and will include the requisite updates of Trophies, 1080p visuals, Shareplay, Remote Play, and Activity Feeds. While Jak X will exclude the online multiplayer it originally had, local splitscreen is still available.

The Jak and Daxter series was developed by Naughty Dog, the PlayStation studio best known today for their work on Uncharted and The Last of Us. Before Jak and Daxter, they made their stamp on the PlayStation landscape with another platformer franchise, Crash Bandicoot.

This is not the first time the Jak and Daxter series has made contact with modern gaming hardware. The original trilogy saw an HD update on PlayStation 3 back in 2012, which was later made available on PlayStation Vita the following year.

The return of Naughty Dog’s platforming duo also coincides with the upcoming release of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for PS4, courtesy of Activision and developer Vicarious Visions rather than Naughty Dog itself.
