We remember when Dead Island was a thing before Dying Light came along and made the franchise look like a beta test. Both the original and its sequel, Dead Island: Riptide, weren't terrible games, but we wouldn't say that they're worthy of a PlayStation 4 remastered collection, either.

But with titles like Prototype getting reworked for Sony's latest console, we guess that just about anything's possible - and that's why we may be getting Dead Island: Definitive Collection. According to listings on Best Buy, the package will consist of both Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide in their definitive forms, and it'll launch on the 31st May. It'll also feature "a brand new stand-alone 16-bit game set in the style of a classic side-scrolling action / endless runner within the Dead Island universe," called Dead Island: Retro Revenge. Well, okay then.

As the headline says, we're not sure anyone actually asked for this, but we suppose that keeping the dead buried is harder than it looks.
