Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing Will Launch for PS4 on December 6th
It was announced by Bryan Pardilla, Associate Producer, SIEA on a Playstation blog post, that Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X Combat Racing will be available for download on the PlayStation Store on December 6! The games are offered individually or can be purchased as a bundle.
Check out the launch trailer of Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics, featuring some gameplay footage:
“On October 14, 2003, Naughty Dog released Jak II for the PlayStation 2 system, and something amazing happened for the Jak and Daxter franchise: Jak was able to speak for the first time, enabling players to hear and experience Jak’s own point of view using his voice, instead of relying solely on Daxter’s witty banter and exposition. This was the start of something special, and the franchise continued to reach new heights with the release of Jak 3 and Jak X, in part because of this one simple addition.
By giving Jak a voice, it allowed Naughty Dog to explore new narrative techniques that allowed them to create a grittier world with a much more developed and evolved storyline. Jak and Daxter evolved from whimsical lighthearted platforming characters to a much darker vision of a future’s past world where Jak and Daxter find themselves pitted against multiple dark forces moving against them.
The narrative tropes Naughty Dog explored in Jak and Daxter laid the foundation for the evolution of their highly innovative story telling. It put them on the path that led to the creation of future blockbuster franchises like Uncharted and The Last of Us— and to think it all started with giving Jak his own voice.
In celebration of Naughty Dog’s rich heritage, it is with great pleasure that we present to you these Jak & Daxter classics on the PS4.
Wait, there’s more! To help make experiencing these games even more nostalgic, please check out the Legacy Dashboard Theme ($2.99) created by our friends over at Truant Pixel. You can find this at PlayStation Store, also on December 6. Whenever we see this theme on our PS4 console, we can’t help but think about our fond gaming memories. We hope you feel the same way too.
– Bryan Pardilla – Associate Producer, SIEA”
