The remastered re-release of Grim Fandango is less than 24 hours away. We’re working on our review, but in the meantime, check out these screenshots.
While no one’s going to mistake this for a current generation game, much of the art is so clean and simple that it holds up pretty well for a seventeen year-old effort.
Grim Fandango was one of the last great adventure games, and despite much of the fatigue gamers are developing for re-releases, remakes, and remasters, this is one that deserves it just to make sure it’s still available.
Grim Fandango is up for pre-order on the PlayStation Network, Steam, and GOG.com for $14.99 US and unlocks at 12AM EST tonight. If you have a Vita and a PlayStation 4, it also sports cross-buy and cross-saves so that, even on the go, you can keep it close to where your heart used to be (just like Manny Calavera’s scythe). PlayStation 4 users also get a Grim Fandango theme for their PS4 dashboard.
