With remasters in vogue and ports in the spotlight, we take a look at the art of transferring games to new hardware in a feature this week.

You can read Bridging the generation gap: Porting games to new platforms on Polygon, of course. The story is also available to listen to in Polygon Longform, a podcast that takes our biggest, most interesting feature stories and presents them like audiobooks.
