Remastered LucasArts Adventure Games Looking Likely for Release on PS5 | Push Square

We were fortunate enough to receive remasters of a trio of classic LucasArts point-and-click adventures on PS4, and it's now looking like they're being ported to PS5 too. Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, and Day of the Tentacle are all playable on Sony's previous console (and technically PS5 as well), but it seems the current-gen system will soon have native versions of its own.
All three remasters have been listed for PS5 on the Taiwan ratings board, as spotted by Gematsu:
As always, ratings for games are surefire signs that a release or an announcement is imminent. We expect the trio will be confirmed for PS5 in the near future.
Will you play these classic games again — or for the first time — on PS5? Let us know in the comments section below.
Having grown up alongside PlayStation, Stephen has developed an eclectic taste in video games and a wide knowledge of the medium, from small indie gems to the biggest AAA blockbusters. Ever hopeful that the Burnout series makes a miraculous return.
I absolutely love these games and have them on PS4 but I can’t really see what a native PS5 version would do. Maybe native 4K? Not sure that’s really needed with these style of games.
@Angelus3K They'd make money, what more needs to be said? Hopefully they'll be free PS5 apps for those of us that bought them on PS4. I'd happily run through them again for some more trophies and the nostalgia.
I should play Grim Fandango one of these days (technically I did but never finished it). Love the other games even if Full Throttle is a bit on the short and simple side for the genre.
I am curious to see how these will be better than the PS4 versions.
These games don't seem like that would benefit much from a native version.
Curse of Monkey Island, please. That's the one I want.
Maniac Mansion and Zak McKraken releases, you cowards! Come on!
Seriously though, the other games have been available on modern consoles for a long time. I like them a lot, buuuut… these two are definitive experiences that I want to revisit on modern hardware. It’s time to put the hamster in the microwave one more time.
@Vil Yeah good call — loved CMI. I suspect this one is far harder to do due to all the hand drawn animation in there — far more elaborate than previous games. But if they're doing it for the Broken Sword games then maybe it's possible for this...?!
Sign me up for the other ones — DOTT in particular is one of my all time favourites.
I have all three of these on PS4 and they’re all classics – especially Day of the Tentacle for me. But what I really want on PS5 is the Special Edition of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. Now that would be particularly cool.
@The_Pixel_King it is 'sort' of available, you can stream the PS3 version if you've
