I LOVE Psychonauts! I also love playing games on my PlayStation 4! Well, it was recently announced that Double Fine’s classic PS2 platformer Psychonauts is heading to PS4 this spring! Now, I already own a complete copy of the game for PS2 that I replay every-so-often, so I won’t be purchasing the updated version for my PS4. However, if you don’t already own it or haven’t played it before, you really, REALLY should.
Here’s a synopsis from Double Fine:
Psychonauts follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin in his quest to join an elite group of international psychic secret agents, the Psychonauts! He runs away from the circus and breaks into their secret training facility, Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp.
As he begins his training by psychically delving inside the consciousnesses of his tutors and those around him, he realizes all is not as it seems, and soon embarks upon a psychic odyssey through a variety of levels set inside the minds of misfits, monsters, and madmen!
Last month at PlayStation Experience in San Francisco, Double Fine announced that ‘Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin’ would be coming exclusively to PlayStation VR this year (no final date yet), and they’ve been running a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to make Psychonauts 2. Thankfully, the sequel has been 100% funded, and will also be coming to PS4 in a few years time. So while we wait for the sequel, go ahead and play the original to prep for even MORE Psychonauts goodness in the future.
