Sure, we’ve seen some big name remakes like The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V, but those came out on the previous generation of consoles just a year or two ago.
What we’re really looking forward to are those older games, ones we haven’t been able to play without hooking up an old console or booting into some kind of emulator.
Just a week after Capcom’s Re-Re-Remake of Resident Evil releases, Tim Schafer’s classic adventure game, Grim Fandango, hits digital shelves. This looks to be the good kind of remaster, too. Rather than just releasing the game in a format that’ll boot correctly on modern computers, we’re getting remastered, higher resolution graphics, a live orchestral soundtrack, and director’s commentary. On top of that, the revised control patches we’ve seen over the years, created with the help of the modders that originally built them, will be part of the game.
We don’t have a price for the game yet, but I’d expect a price tag somewhere near the $19.99 mark.
Grim Fandango Remastered hits PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Mac, and Linux on January 27.
