Soon, All of the Main Jak and Daxter Games Will Be Playable on PS5, PS4 1

Platforming fans can rest assured knowing that from 18th June, you’ll be able to play every single mainline Jak and Daxter game on PS5 and PS4. The release of PSP platformer Daxter – arguably one of the best entries in the series – will round out the selection, with Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing already available. Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, the PSP and PS2 epilogue, launched earlier this year.

It should be noted that the original trilogy, along with Jak X: Combat Racing, are still tied to Sony’s old PS2 emulator, meaning they don’t play as well as they necessarily should. Earlier in the PS4 generation, the Japanese giant ported a select number of PS2 titles to its current-gen console, but the emulation was sloppy and lacked quality of life improvements. The firm’s new PS2 emulator, debuted alongside the likes of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, includes quick saves and rewind.

Still, it’s great to see all the Jak and Daxter titles readily available on current hardware – this is the kind of preservation we want. We suspect all of the Sly Cooper games will eventually make their way across, and we’d like to see the Ratchet & Clank series follow, especially the largely overlooked spin-off Secret Agent Clank, which very few have actually played. Will you be giving Daxter a spin? Let us know in the comments section below.
