The Unfinished Swan PS4

The Unfinished Swan is one of those rare PlayStation 3 titles that scored a 10/10 on this very website – and if you missed out on it the first time around, you’ll be able to sample the imaginitive adventure on the PlayStation 4 and Vita next week. Due out on 28th October in North America and 29th October in Europe, this re-release will run at 60 frames-per-second in 1080p on Sony’s next-gen system, allowing you to see every single paint splodge in perfect clarity.

For those unfamiliar with the title, it sees you assume the role of a young boy who chases a swan into a strange – and unfinished – kingdom. The primary mechanic involves you tossing paint balls from a first-person perspective in order to feel your way through the world, but it gradually gets much more imaginitive than that. Honestly, this editor preferred it to even Journey – and even took the time to quiz composer Joel Corelitz about its brilliant baroque soundtrack.

The game will set you back £9.99/$14.99 across all three platforms, but if you’ve already purchased it for the PS3, you’ll be able to download the new versions for free. You can’t really say fairer than that, can you?
