If you missed out on the rest of the Jak and Daxter universe beyond the first game, you'll have a chance to experience them as PlayStation 4 releases next week. The original announcement only promised us a release "later in 2017", and it's certainly later on in the year.

After being announced back in April, seminal Naughty Dog adventure Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy launched on the PS4 as part of the PS2 Classics selection back in August.

Originally developed by Naughty Dog, all three games will receive the full PS2 Classics treatment (including visuals up-rendered to 1080p and full Trophy support) for their re-release on the PS4. There is also an option to purchase Jak II, 3, and Combat Racing as a bundle for $39.99 if you so choose. With Jak able to talk, Naughty Dog transformed the initially whimsical tone of the series into a much darker one in succeeding games. The games will carry a price tag of $14.99, similar to Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.

The importance of the signing wasn't lost on Eagles' quarterback Carson Wentz , either. "We are excited about his future here". The Eagles have announced a contract extension for Jeffery which will keep him in Philadelphia through 2021.

With more Jak and Daxter games made available to the PlayStation 4, fans of the franchise may be hoping that the revival of the series is in the works. The theme even had some input from the original dashboard creator at some point in the development process.

The narrative tropes Naughty Dog explored in Jak and Daxter laid the foundation for the evolution of their highly innovative story telling.
