Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells has today formally announced the existence of the Jak & Daxter Collection for PlayStation 3 with screenshots and a trailer to show off the title, which features high-definition remastered versions of the studio’s three favourite Jak & Daxter games.
Working closely with Naughty Dog, the Jak & Daxter Collection is currently in the works at development studio Mass Media, and will include Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3.
“With the launch of Jak and Daxter Collection,” writes Wells on the PlayStation Blog, “you’ll be able to experience the adventures of Jak and his Daxter in 720p high definition with crisper visuals, smoother gameplay animation, and in full stereoscopic 3D. And, I’m sure all of you hardcore collectors will be happy to hear that each game in the trilogy features full PS3 trophy support.”
According to Wells, the Jak & Daxter franchise will celebrate its ten year anniversary on December 4th this year, and in those ten years, the franchise has set a few benchmarks for the platformer genre and even holds seven world records in the Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition 2008, “including the First Seamless 3D World in a Console Game.”
The Jak & Daxter Collection is set to launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 in February 2012, and in the meantime you can enjoy the first trailer for the game below:
