We have covered the recent increase in HD collections of last gen titles a lot here on ZoKnowsGaming, but one game series that we see repeated requests for are the Jak and Daxter titles. Well, that and Kingdom Hearts, but I’m not jumping up and down like a lunatic just yet so that announcement will have to wait for another day. Jak and Daxter though, that’s happening!
We originally received this confirmation not from Sony or Naughty Dog, but instead via the German games rating board. They have the game officially titled as ‘Jak and Daxter Trilogy Edition’, so it seems fans of Jak X: Combat Racing and the PSP Daxter title will still be in the cold. Sony has now officially confirmed the collection is on its way, but no date has been mentioned as yet. If your interested by the way, the game received a 6+ rating, so keep those toddlers away!
The Jak and Daxter games received both critical acclaim and high sales, and retain a strong place in gamer’s hearts. Many were sad to see Naughty Dog abandon the series in favour of Uncharted although with Ratchet and Clank still going reasonably strong perhaps there was an argument that market has already been covered on PS3. Regardless, we will soon be able to enjoy a return to Misty Island alongside our remakes of Metal Gear Solid, Shadow of the Colossus and Z.O.E. Is the reason for removing backwards compatibility from the PS3 now becoming clear?
