Longtime fans and new players alike can experience the incredible exploits of Jak and Daxter as the duo sets out to explore ancient lands and unravel the mysteries of the Precursors,” wrote Sony on the EU PlayStation Blog.

Developed by Naughty Dog, Jak & Daxter was first released on the PS2 back in December 2001. The sequel followed in 2003 with Jak III releasing the following year, while Jak X arrived in 2005 and is to date the final entry in the series to be produced by Naughty Dog. The series then saw a series of spin-off titles such as Daxter and The Lost Frontier, which were developed by other teams.

Mass Media Inc. worked on a re-release of the original trilogy for PS3 and PS Vita back in 2012, known as the Jak and Daxter Collection in the U.S. and The Jak and Daxter Trilogy in Europe. The dynamic duo also had appearances in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and PlayStation Move Heroes, with the platforming series having sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
