Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy and the remastered versions of Parappa The Rapper and Wipeout game will be coming this 2017. With a huge market for old-school gamers, these classic titles PS4 versions will surely be a hit this coming year.
Before the end of 2016, these remastered games were announced at the recently concluded Sony PlayStation Experience.
Wipeout Omega Collection
Wipeout game will be getting an HD upgrade that will bundle its different series. Among these are Wipeout HD, Wipeout Fury and Wipeout 2028.
The remastered bundle will be called the Wipeout Omega Collection. According to Gamespot, it will be released in the Summer of 2017.
Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy
The Crash Bandicoot PS4 reboot will also feature an HD upgrade. However, creators said that it was not as easy as copy-pasting things.
Naughty Dog developer?s original code and assets were all ?nearly unusable,? so they practically had to re-develop everything from scratch. ?They?re roughly 20 years old, and technology has advanced significantly in that time,? a rep from Vicarious Visions said.
Gameplay and even audio details had to be upgraded. In spite of this, creators said they maintained the game?s simplicity and precision.
?Quality-of-life improvements? also had to be integrated. This included manual and auto saving options and a unified checkpointing system obviously not included in the 1996 version.
There is still no exact release date for Crash Bandicoot?s return except that it will happen this 2017.
Parappa The Rapper
Japanese title Parappa the Rapper will be receiving a much-needed visual update for its PS4 reboot. Its release is reportedly in line with the classic?s 20th anniversary happening next year.
Recently released demos hinted at what gamers can expect from the remake. A review from Polygon said the game?s charm is in its overall nostalgic and almost tacky feel. This included the main character?s paper-thin frame and loud 90?s streetwear. Its popular bright hip-hop themes and color schemes were still there. Weird supporting cast members such as Parappa?s flower girlfriend and a dancing onion in a ninja suit, will also still be part of the game.
Just like Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, Parappa the Rapper?s reboot also still doesn?t have a definite release date. Full game details have also been scarce after the project?s initial announcement. TheBitBag will be on the lookout for more updates.
