PS4 Gets All Nostalgic with a New PS2-Inspired Theme

The real treat among the bunch will be Jak X Combat Racing; not that the other games aren't all fantastic in their own right, but Naughty Dog's spin-off racing game hasn't been available on any platform other than the PS2 since 2005.

Jak 2 originally launched 15 years ago, in 2003, nearly two years after Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.

Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing were announced yesterday as individual downloads ($14.99 each) or a bundle ($39.99) starting Wednesday, Dec. 6, three months after Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was released as a PS2 Classic in August.

Therefore, it was decided that in celebration of Naughty Dog's rich heritage to present these Jak and Daxter classics on PS4. You can check out a brief trailer for the Jak and Daxter re-releases, below. There will also be some minor technical improvements, including quicker loading times. It put them on the path that led to the creation of future blockbuster franchises like Uncharted and The Last of Us- and to think it all started with giving Jak his own voice.

The Jak and Daxter series' numbered trilogy will finally be available on PlayStation 4 as the second and third entries will release next week through the PlayStation Store as PlayStation 2 Classics.

Naughty Dog has denied that it is developing a new Jak and Daxter game, and there may be no reason to doubt that claim.

The theme is set to release December 6th, so have your credit cards ready when the theme drops to take a long overdue trip down memory lane.
