Jak and Daxter trilogy + JAK X coming to PS4!

Post by OrangeRakoon » Mon Apr 03, 2017 4:27 pm



As part of the PS2 classics range, Jak and Daxter: The Precusor Legacy, Jak II: Renegade, Jak 3 and Jak X are all coming to PS4 this year. The three main games in the trilogy were remastered for PS3 (and Vita, although the Vita version was badly ported), but this is the first release of Jak X since the original game on PS2!

It looks like the trilogy are all the original PS2 games but rendered in full HD as opposed to using the remastered games. They are still looking good if the above trailer is any indication though!

If you weren't aware I am a considerable Jak and Daxter fan and this has made my week - especially with the inclusion of Jak X!

I've never actually played Jak X, so I'll definitely check that out when it appears.

May also get Jak 1 again because I adore that game so much. Jak 2 can gooseberry fool off

It's genuinely great, the follow up to CTR that gets ignored because of it's edgy aesthetic.

Hopefully the save glitch from the original Jak X game gets fixed. Had to play most of Jak X with the memory card out of the PS2 because the save glitch can cause memory card corruption and it means you can't actually save your progress because the save data icon is constantly appearing.

But yeah, Jak X is a pretty solid racing game overall. Long time since I last played it of course and the multiplayer is limited to just 2 players which is annoying, but it does sort of feel like a more mature Mario Kart in a way, it also does cut to close ups of anyone you manage to hit with weapons which does take a bit of getting used to but there's a good amount of track variety in there, even if all the tracks are just made up of parts of a whole world map and put together on one track so you may be driving the same roads across multiple tracks.

Personally liked the rock based sountrack but that's just me.

May get them depending on the price of each game, I remember enjoying them quite a lot but I only ever played each through the once.

This never affected me luckily, I didn't even know about it until way after playing through the game.

I'm interested in knowing if they'll change the game to allow for unlocking the Dater specific characters/vehicles. In the original you had to link up your PSP to the PS2 via usb to unlock extras, but it would be cool if they made it so they are still unlockable in the PS4 version. Apparently there is precedence for this too with PS2 classics.

Always wondered how you unlocked those. I noticed that Ratchet was an unlockable racer and it would have been cool to race with him, although at the time of playing Jak X I had yet to play the Ratchet and Clank series.

Ratchet was from having a ratchet gladiator save file on your memory card iirc - which was lucky as I had played gladiator with a friend so I actually had it!

I'm hype for this even though I don't have a PS4 because it means more people get to play one of the best series ever

and then maybe if the remasters do really well they'll make a new one pretty please no Lost Frontier doesn't count I refuse to acknowledge that that was ever a thing

Lost Frontier is a great game, fight me

Fans only dislike it because it plays loose with characters/lore.
