Sony broke some big news during the recent PlayStation experience event informing its fans that Crash won’t be the only classic PlayStation franchise set for a revival.
The bandicoot isn’t the only one as in 2017 an HD collection of Wipeout,as well as a visual upgrade for Parappa The Rapper are set to join the fray.
Wipeout came out back in 1995 as a futuristic racing game developed and published by Psygnosis with the first game in the Wipeout series set in the year 2052. The Wipeout Omega Collection will feature Wipeout HD, Wipeout Fury, and Wipeout 2028. It’s expected to be released next Summer, and you can have a look at the trailer right here.
Next we have The Crash Bandicoot series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment. The Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, will consist of the first three Crash games in stunning HD.
This one is also slated for a 2017 release. If you’d like to check out a brand new and very impressive trailer, you can do so right here.
Last but not least, we have the PlayStation 4 re-release of Parappa the Rapper. The rhythm video game developed by NanaOn-Sha and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation is arguably one of the weirdest, most fashionable, and underrated PlayStation games of its era. There is a demo currently available on PSN, and you’d definitely want to check it.
Like the other two titles we’ll have to wait to see Parappa again until 2017, but as we endure our long wait might as well check out the trailer to keep us hyped.
Alongside the trio listed above, Loco Roco and Patapon are also getting PS4 upgrades sometime next year and we’ll be sure to bring you the news on that soon. Until then let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
