A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next.
Tim Schafer from Double Fine Productions announced two remastered games will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita at the PlayStation Experience 2015 in San Francisco.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Full Throttle Remastered are to reach both Sony consoles in March 2016. Day of the Tentacle first came out in 1993 and is a sequel to Maniac Mansion. The player is taken into a cartoonish world following Bernard Bernoulli, and his friends Hoagie and Laverne, on an adventure to stop the evil Purple Tentacle.
Full Throttle came out in 1995 and is set in a future world in the year 2040. The player takes control of Ben, a biker gang leader, on a mission to save the other members of his gang who were falsely accused of murder.
Schafer created the games while he was at LucasArts, the now-defunct division of Star Wars creator George Lucas’ Lucasfilm, which is now owned by Disney.
