Jak and Daxter games coming to PS4 as PS2 Classics

The original trilogy and a bonus!

Four entries in Naughty Dog’s beloved Jak and Daxter series are on their way to the PlayStation 4, Sony announced today.

Jak and Daxter is the first full Sony franchise to get the PlayStation 2 Classics treatment on the PS4. The company is porting all three games in Naughty Dog’s original trilogy — 2001’s Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, 2003’s Jak 2 and 2004’s Jak 3 — as well as the studio’s 2005 spinoff, Jak X: Combat Racing.

Sony pointed out that the PS4 debut of Jak X will be the first time anyone has been able to buy the game since its release; right now, it isn’t available digitally in any form. The company did release the Jak and Daxter trilogy on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in the Jak and Daxter Collection, but that package did not include the vehicular combat spinoff.

As with all PS2-on-PS4 titles, these four games are being up-rezzed to 1080p resolution, and Sony is adding PS4 features such as PlayStation Network trophies, Share Play and Remote Play. They will all be available for purchase in the PlayStation Store “later this year,” said Sony. The company did not announce pricing, but most of the PS2 Classics titles cost $9.99 or $14.99.
