A compilation of the highly memorable 8-bit and 16-bit Jurassic Park games will release on PS5 and PS4, with pre-orders for physical copies beginning on 1st September through 15th October. The package will feature three versions of the original Jurassic Park game, originally released for NES, SNES, and Game Boy. You’ll also get two versions of Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues, originally released for SNES and Game Boy.

Unfortunately, there’s no word of the popular SEGA Genesis or SEGA CD versions being included as well, although the trailer does promise more information about the collection will be announced in the future.

Nevertheless, each game will be updated for more contemporary audiences, including quality of life features like save states, improved in-game maps, and more. We’re particularly fond of the NES adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s hit 90s movie, which includes a really rather impressive render of a T-Rex during the intro sequence – an incredible achievement on the 8-bit machine. The actual game’s pretty good, too – albeit hard as nails.

With Limited Run Games handling the physical editions, there’ll be a variety of options to order. The most basic package will run you $29.99 for a boxed Blu-ray disc, but there’ll also be a Steelbook Edition for $64.99 which ships in classic VHS-style packaging. Then there’s the Prehistoric Edition which comes with all of the above in addition to Dr. Alan Grant’s ID card, a physical CD soundtrack, mini cartridge replicas, and packaging inspired by the original Jurassic Park toys.
