As part of the PlayStation Experience keynote, Sony announced several new games, but the company also focused on some beloved classics that are making a return to Sony’s console. Apart from favorite Sony properties from yore, there are a few surprises that include cult classics that not a lot of people saw coming, such as Windjammers and a remake of the three Crash Bandicoot games.
This fast-paced sports game was a cult hit when it came out in the arcades and the NEO-GEO, but soon, you won’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to play Windjammers. At its core, the game is an improved version of Pong or air hockey where the players keep shooting the disc at the opponent’s goal zone to try and score points. You can choose from six characters, six courts and you can play against the computer or a friend. The PlayStation 4 version of the cult classic will feature online play for the first time.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Unlike the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 lacks any form of backward compatibility, so if you want to play a PS3 game on a PS4, you need to wait until a remastered version comes out. Sony and Capcom unveiled a new entry in the Marvel vs Capcom series known as Infinite which is coming in 2017, but they also announced that Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is now available as an exclusive title for the PS4.
Parappa, Loco Roco, Patapon
Parappa, Loco Roco and Patapon are coming to the PlayStation 4. We don’t have that much information about Loco Roco and Patapon, but we know that Parappa is celebrating its 20th anniversary and that the game will make use of the DualShock 4’s unique features, a demo is now live. The three games will have 4K support on the PS4 Pro.
Wipeout Omega Collection
Titled Wipeout Omega Collection, this compilation features high-definition versions of Wipeout HD, Wipeout Fury and Wipeout 2048. The collection is coming out sometime next summer, so if you enjoy fast-paced, futuristic racing games, you should probably wait until this comes out. The games have 4K and HDR support, as well as 60 frames per second targeted performance.
Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy
Crash Bandicoot 1, 2 and 3 are coming to the PlayStation 4, since they are getting a high-definition upgrade. Apart from the fact that the entire trilogy is coming out some time in 2017 and with a visual upgrade, we don’t have any more details, but if you have any fondness for the classic platformers, you know if you should get excited about the announcement or not.
