When you think of PS2 classics, several games probably come to mind. Final Fantasy X, God of War, even the first few Ratchet and Clank games. However, if you are a bit of a gaming hipster with a taste for the things the crazier indie studios cook up, then you probably remember Double Fine’s Psychonauts, a quirky tale about a runaway psychic youth and his journey into the minds of his psychic summer camp friends.
Good news for fans of Double Fine’s first hit indie game: Psychonauts is now coming to the PSN as a PS2 Classic. According to a resent U.S. PlayStation Blog post, the game will be available come August 28, next Tuesday.
Unfortunately, it seems like this is a direct port, not a HD remix of any sort. The post didn’t mention any extras or additional content. Still, Psychonauts doesn’t need bells and whistles to sell as a PS2 classic. Jumping into abstract mental worlds filled with meat is more than enough to make this game a must buy.
