Piggyback has again joined forces with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. This time piggyback will develop and publish the Jak II: Renegade official strategy guide for PlayStation 2 across Pal territories for simultaneous release with the game. The guide will be published in four separate language SKUs: English, German, French and Spanish.

As with all official piggyback strategy guides, the publication will be printed on high quality paper with stitch binding and a 6-page cover, making it another collector's item from the guide publisher.

The 166-page Jak IITM: Renegade official strategy guide will have been in development for over 5 months. The guide comes complete with official artwork whilst Daxter, Jak's companion, echoes the games unique personality across every page. Daxter guides the gamer through each mission, level and secret, and gives all details relating to weapons, enemies, vehicles, items, in-game orientation and more.

Louie Beatty, Managing Director of piggyback comments, "We are pleased to complete our second official publication in association with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, giving us the opportunity to create essential companions to their leading intellectual properties."

Simon Rutter, Vice President of Software Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe added, "Jak IITM: Renegade is our most involved 3D character game for the PlayStation® 2 to date, and having a guide developed by piggyback is testament to the depth of gameplay, ensuring this title has long term appeal for retail and gamers alike."

Piggyback has teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to insert a 4-page dedicated flyer into each English, German, French and Spanish SKU of the Jak IITM: Renegade game. This flyer advertises the guide, and lists all of its key features. In addition, piggyback will be mailing its European database of 140,000 registered users informing them of the guide's availability.
