PS4 retro theme harks back to the PS2 glory days

As announced earlier in the year a full suite of Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics is officially headed to the PS4 in the very near future

The studio used the second game in the series, Jak II, to establish a more serious tone and gave the protagonist the ability to speak. However, the online multiplayer that was originally present in Jak X: Combat Racing won't be operational on the PS4. Sony re-released Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy back in August, and soon it will be joined by Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing.

Naughty Dog said in April that four titles from the Jak and Daxter franchise will be released for the PlayStation 4 this year, and it appears that the developer will keep that promise.

Before you get too excited, Jak and Daxter aren't getting the full remake treatment, but the original PS2 games have been upgraded with 1080p and Trophy support. Well now the entire series will be available for you to download/purchase on the PS4.

Sony Confirms Classic Jak and Daxter Bundle Coming to PS4 Next Week

Naughty Dog released Jak II for PlayStation 2 on 14 October 2003. Interestingly, they made a decision to take the franchise in another direction when they released their fourth main game, Jak X Combat Racing in 2005. However, the rest of the promised Jak and Daxter games were still missing, until now.

Together, the entirety of Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter installments will be playable on the current Sony platform. The games can be bought for $15 apiece, or as part of a bundle. Naughty Dog would go on to create the Uncharted and The Last of Us franchises.

Sony has just announced that Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing will be hitting the system December 6, with 1080p upscaling as well as trophy support.
