"I see a bad moon rising..."

It seems that Sony systems are the new home for classic adventure games. Last week during E3 we learned that Grim Fandango, Tim Schafer's excursion into the murky world of noir, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita. And now, we've been given a release date for Another World, the quirky sci-fi title that originally launched back in 1991.

The visually distinctive game – which is set to land next week on the PS4, PS3, and Vita – has also seen a whole host of updates, which have been overseen by its original creator Eric Chahi. These include refined animations, full-colour backgrounds, and a new cinematic soundtrack. Oh, and the developer's also managed to boost the resolution, so it should look nice and crisp.

Unfortunately, this fledgling writer wasn't even born when the game was originally released, so he can't fully comprehend how influential and impressive it was. What he can appreciate, though, is that this new version will be launching with cross-buy and cross-save functionality, meaning that he'll be able to purge his ignorance on the go.

Will you be picking up Another World, or are its gaunt graphics turning you off? Do you want more classics like this to see a second life on modern consoles? Blast off in the comments section below.
