Sony has announced via the PlayStation Blog, they are releasing the rest of the Jak and Daxter series on PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog’s Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing will launch on the PlayStation Store on 6th December.
In addition, this release follows on from the PS4 debut of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy which was a pre-order bonus for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
Originally, Jak II was released in October 2003 bringing a much darker tone to the franchise. This dark tone came solely from the shooting mechanics which were not present in the first game. Next, Naughty Dog released Jak 3 in November 2004 with a similar tone to Jak II. However, the franchise then had a complete overhaul with Jak X: Combat Racing, a vehicular combat game, that was released in 2005.
Furthermore, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3 were released in high-definition for the PS3. However, this will be the first time gamers can get their hands on Jak X since 2005.
Sony has revealed these games are being up-rendered to 1080p resolution and will feature PlayStation Network Trophy support. Additionally, Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing will be offered individually or as a bundle. Alongside these games, Sony are releasing the Legacy Dashboard Theme on 6th December.
There is currently no word from Sony on pricing for the games individually or for the bundle.
