Plumbers Don't Wear Ties PS5 PlayStation 5 1

It’s widely regarded as one of the worst games ever made, but in this era of unexpected ports, Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties is a prime candidate for a physical re-release from Limited Run Games. The legendary 3DO game was announced for PS5 and PS4 last year, but is now zeroing in on a launch in the second half of 2022.

For those of you not familiar with the original, it’s an FMV title with a loose interpretation of the words “full motion video”. Y’see, the game was critically panned at launch for its presentation focusing on slideshow stills, rather than actual video footage. For the new Definitive Edition (!!!) versions, the images are being remastered in 4K, and there’ll be deleted scenes – as well as some interviews.

We imagine there’ll probably also be some pricey Collector’s Editions for those that want them, as this tends to be LRG’s modus operandi these days. It’s somewhat bizarre that this is making a comeback, but we suppose it’s fascinating from a historical perspective. Are there any other long-forgotten FMV games you’d like to see ported to modern consoles?
