Full Throttle Remastered announced, coming to PS4 and Vita (update)

Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen.

A remastered version of Full Throttle, the LucasArts adventure game staring a biker and heavy metal music, is in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, developer Tim Schafer announced during the PlayStation Experience 2015 keynote.

Full Throttle Remastered will have updated graphics, sound, developer commentary and multiple control options Schafer said. As with Double Fine's other remakes, Grim Fandango Remastered and the upcoming Day of the Tentacle remastered, Full Throttle Remastered will also include the "complete, unaltered original" game.

Originally released in 1995, the LucasArts team behind Full Throttle, including Schafer, also worked on graphic adventure games like those in the Monkey Island series. Press play below to see the classic introductory cinematic from the original.

Update: A Double Fine representative told Polygon that Full Throttle Remastered is scheduled for a 2016 release. It's also headed to PC.
