'Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics' (PS4) Launches Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 1, 2017 @ 1:45 p.m. PST

In Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics fans can experience the incredible exploits of Jak and Daxter as the duo sets out to explore ancient lands and unravel the mysteries of the Precursors.

The dynamic duo is back!

Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics includes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing, which will be available on PS4 via download on the PS Store.

On October 14, 2003, Naughty Dog released Jak II for the PS2 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.


Jak X: Combat Racing, Naughty Dog’s wild vehicular combat PS2 classic will be available for the first time anywhere since its release back in October 2005. Originally released for PS2, Jak X will make its way onto PS4 later this year. Play Adventure or Exhibition mode in this no-holds-barred buggy brawler for hours of challenge and fun. Although there will be no online features you can still battle against your friends via splitscreen.

Experience these Naughty Dog PS2 classics with 1080p up-rendering and Trophy support. Additional enhanced features include Shareplay, Remote Play, and Activity Feeds (an active PlayStation Plus membership is required to use certain online features).

Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics will be available for PS4 on Dec. 6, 2017.
