These days Sony is working to increase the number of classic PlayStation 2 titles that are available for the PlayStation 4. It announced last year that PS4 owners will be able to play select PS2 games once the classics have been reworked to support the current-gen console. The list of supported games is slowly increasing with the classic Psychonauts being the latest addition to the list.
Psychonauts is about the story of Razputin, a young psychic, who is on a journey to join an elite group of international psychic secret agents called the Psychonauts. In his quest to become a secret agent Razputin runs away from the circus and breaks into their secret training facility.
When his training begins Razputin realizes that all is not as it seems, so he then goes on a psychic odyssey laid out through several levels inside the minds of monsters, misfits and madmen.
Fans of this game will be interested to know that at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event last month it was confirmed that Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin will be released for PlayStation VR later this year, and that the new title Psychonauts 2 will arrive by 2018 even on Xbox One and PC aside from PS4.
As for the original Psychonauts, it’s going to be released for PlayStation 4 later this spring.
