This weekend, dozens of new games, updates and remasters were unveiled at PlayStation Experience 2016. Although Knack 2 clearly stole the show, there were several other reveals that stood out above the rest. So rather than exhaustively list each and every announcement from PSX, we’ll focus on the five best.
5. PaRappa the Rapper
Everyone’s favorite rapping pup is returning in 4K resolution. Next year, Sony plans to release a remastered version of the classic PS1 title PaRappa the Rapper, as well as remasters of popular PSP rhythm games LocoRoco and Patapon.
4. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
One of the all-time classic platformers is also getting a remaster, but this one looks far more comprehensive than PaRappa’s. According to developer Naughty Dog, this isn’t quite a remake (because the three games are the same), but it’s more than a fresh coat of paint, as you can see in the trailer above.
3. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Nostalgia seems to be a running theme for PSX 2016. Along with the return of PaRappa and Crash, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will bring another classic franchise back from the dead. This one will hit PS4, Xbox One and PC next year.
2. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Although Uncharted 4 tied a bow on Nathan Drake’s story, there are still other stories that have yet to be told in the Uncharted universe. One of those stories centers on Chloe Frazer, who will star in the first story DLC for the series.
1. The Last of Us Part II
We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make the announcement of The Last of Us Part II any less exciting for fans of the first game. Ellie and Joel will both return for a new journey through the post-apocalyptic wasteland.
