Retro title Grim Fandango is launching as a timed exclusive on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, it was announced during today's Sony conference.
According to Sony, the PS4 and PS Vita release is the result of the company's "relationship with our good friends Disney." Walt Disney Studios purchased LucasArts in 2012 for $4.05 billion, then closed the long-running studio one year later.
The classic Tim Schafer title first launched from LucasArts in 1998, offering a dark comedy style within a neo-noir adventure game. Grim Fandango tells the story of travel agent Manuel "Manny" Clavera as he tries to save Mercedes "Meche" Colomar, a newly arrived soul in the land of the dead, during her journey.
Update: Game designer Tim Schafer has since confirmed on Twitter that the game will be brought to other platforms at a later date. "Talk about other platforms soon! Sony's been a great help making this happen & we're excited to be working with them on the console version!"
