Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics Out Today On PS4 | PS3Blog.net
If you’ve been waiting to add the rest of the Jak and Daxter series to your collection, today is your day! Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X Combat Racing are now ready for download on PS4.
Bryan Pardilla, Associate Producer at SIEA, had this to say:
On October 14, 2003, Naughty Dog released Jak II for the PlayStation 2 system, and something amazing happened for the Jak and Daxter franchise: Jak was able to speak for the first time, enabling players to hear and experience Jak’s own point of view using his voice, instead of relying solely on Daxter’s witty banter and exposition. This was the start of something special, and the franchise continued to reach new heights with the release of Jak 3 and Jak X, in part because of this one simple addition.
By giving Jak a voice, it allowed Naughty Dog to explore new narrative techniques that allowed them to create a grittier world with a much more developed and evolved storyline. Jak and Daxter evolved from whimsical lighthearted platforming characters to a much darker vision of a future’s past world where Jak and Daxter find themselves pitted against multiple dark forces moving against them.
The games will be up for grabs individually or will be ready for you in a bundle.
