Grandia I and II are getting a Switch release late this year

No word on an actual release date, this particular announcement is going to release some time this winter. But, this is seriously a surprise! Grandia II has been re-released a number of times on the PlayStation 2 and PC. However, Grandia I has not seen as much love. Other than a downloadable version for the PS3, the original game in the Grandia franchise has not seen as much attention. From the buzzwords in the news, it also appears to be a HD remaster, whatever that means these days. So, I wouldn’t expect all that much except for some higher resolution textures and a wide screen aspect ratio.

What I am more curious about is the localization options. Are we going to get the Sega Saturn release graphics? Will we receive the English voice acting seen in the PlayStation One release? Many questions remain… Nevertheless, this news excites me that TWO of the best JRPG’s of all time are coming to a great console.

 

The rest (almost) of the Jak series is coming to the PS4!

You can already get the first Jak game on the PS4 as apart of the PS2 Classics program. And, I was wondering “when are they going to bring the rest of the series to the PS4?”

On December 6th, Jak 2, 3 and X: Combat Racing will be dropped onto the PlayStation Store with the perks that the PS2 Classics have: trophies, HD resolutions, share functionality etc.

Many do forget that there are two PSP Jak series entries: Daxter and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier which aren’t likely to see the PS2 Classics treatment.
