While Jak & Daxter’s first outing, The Precursor Legacy, has been available as a PS2 Classic on the PlayStation 4, the rest of the series has been floating in the ether for a few months. Sony has confirmed that will no longer be the case come December 6.
Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X Combat Racing, all weirdly differently structured titles, will be arriving on the PlayStation 4 digitally next week. They can be purchased either as a bundle or separately.
Jak II took the strange tact of going for a more serious tone after the playful cereal box mascot atmosphere of the first game. Jak 3 eschewed some of that Grand Theft Auto influence and also roman numerals. Jak X was a racing game wherein all of Jak’s friends got poisoned and had to win a race for the antidote but they all tried to kill each other during the race which does not make much pragmatic sense.
