Confirmed – Jak & Daxter going HD

While rumors of a Jak & Daxter HD Collection have been popping up for a while now via retailer listings and box art leaks, the set has only just been confirmed by Sony itself.

In a statement to Game Informer, a Sony spokesperson said: “We can confirm the Jak & Daxter Collection is coming and will have more news to share shortly.”

There’s an early Christmas for platforming fans. Handled by Naughty Dog, the developers behind the Uncharted series, Jak & Daxter served up three excellent PS2 games in the form of Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak 2: Renegade and Jak 3. Those are likely to be the only games in the set, though if we’re lucky we’ll see updates of kart racer Jak X and PSP spin-off Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier too.

Could this set mean the arrival of a new PS3 Jak game? It did for Sly Cooper. Hopefully ‘shortly’ means this week for an announcement.
