Jak & Daxter Are BACK!

If there wasn’t enough excitement from GDC last week, here’s even more! We are happy to announce that Jak & Daxter are coming to the PSP and PS2!

Developed by High Impact Games, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier takes the intrepid pair all the way to the edge of the world. There they must battle their way past air pirates and sinister creatures in their quest to find a cure for the world’s eco shortage. Keep an eye out for this title to be available later this year!

nice i only wish it was a graphical improvement on the ps3…would have been nice to do uncharted 2 then jak on ps3

does anybody even see the screenshots? im not talking about the graphics, i dont give a penny about that! im talking about the mossters and even the guns.


look at a [DELETED] monsters, does that even look close to a Jak game???? no it does not, and whoever thinks it is , must be mixing Ratchet and Jak up.

take a look at the frikin guns? ….. im not even going to point out the mistakes.

maybe im going nuts for nothing… but this is just sad

sounds like a april fools joke. first off i thought “Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier” was a PS3 upcoming title, and by the looks of those screen shots, it looks like a very poor game, those textures are beyond poor. on the other hand a new Jak game for the PSP is believable, but a new jak game for the PS2? that makes no sense. Also the only games im aware of that HIGHIMPACTGAMES handles are the Ratchet & Clank series.. they made Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank… why are they now doing a Jak game which is not even a insomniac title..

I just hope that the model of Jak being shown is an April Fools joke. Something very… not right there.

Making this kind of post on April 1st is cruel and unusual.

It is obviously a joke.

I love jak and daxter, too bad it’s not for PS3 (or developed by Naughty Dog). I’ll pick it up anyway, just need to decide which platform to get it on.

When will we see a Keef the Thief sequel?

Firerhea said:

Will the PS2 version at least look as good, if not better, than Jak 3? Because these screens look significantly worse but I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt by assuming it’s the PSP version.

Hey, High Impact, if it’s true, why isn’t it on your site?!

Seriously, I don’t get it. People were complaining about Sony seeming to forget the PSP and seemed to only care about the PS3. When Sony makes PSP announcements finally (which people complained didn’t exists), they complain about them not being on PS3. Sony is not just PS3, they are supporting multiple platforms in the PlayStation family, and I’m very happy to see them get healthy support.

Although I would like to see this game appear on PSN too (just make it an HD scaled PS2 game selling at whatever price the PSP/PS3 version sell at), to give any PlayStation fan a chance to get the game.

not true

King_KDawgg said:

I’ll definitly get this, but I REALLY want a PS3 J&D! I know Naughty Dog is on Uncharted 2 right now, but hopefully they will revisit Jak next. Or, I bet Ready at Dawn could handle a PS3 Jak game. Daxter and God of War on PSP were both excellent.

King_KDawgg said:

April 1st, 12:34 pm

sorry for the dp, but i just noticed Daxter has his pants from the end of Jak 3 in the screen shots lol XD

hvitdverg said:

OMG OMG !! IF this is not an april’s fool im gonna [DELETED] cry :(

I have been waiting for a ps3 version of this awesome game but a ps2 release? WTF
Ps2 games look like [DELETED] on my Samsung Le32A656 I NEED HD games ! PS3!!

You better tell us if it’s a april’s fool or not :(

April 1st, 12:41 pm

hmmm, doesn’t look exactly right. I mean even for a ps2 game the graphic quality isint quite what I would expect. The game was announced, sorta a long time ago and everyone would think it would be for the PS3. Though it does sorta go with the ps2 pricedrop yesterday. And being on April Fools…. I dont trust it. But if it is true im not arguing I love Jak and Daxter games!

come one Naughty Dog? They should have alternated games like Insomniac does with R&C and Resistance. I would love to see a ps3 version of Jak and Daxter instead of Uncharted 2 this year. This sucks since i loved the Jak trilogy on ps2 and wanted to see it transition to the ps3, i hope it does eventually

Lanmanna said:

April 1st, 12:57 pm

Wow. Guys, use some common sense. Why would they randomly make an April Fool’s for J&D? Motorstorm Arctic? PSP AND PS2! Size Matters? PSP and PS2! Twisted Metal? PSP and PS2? Need I go on?

dj128 said:

April 1st, 12:58 pm

Thank the Lord. Jak is finally coming to PSP.

Ok, Lesley. If you say it’s not a gag, I’ll believe you.

Balony!!! This is a Prank from They did not announce this at the GDC 2009 Nice Try Sony!..Yeah quit slacking off and get that Firmware 2.70 patch done already the same goes for the 1.12 Patch for Little Big Planet!.Peace!

Draicus said:

MysticMoon said:

I don’t think I could ever be more furious then I am right now. THIS BETTER BE A JOKE.
I consider myself one of the biggest Jak & Daxter fans EVER.

New developer?

COME OOOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want my Naughty dog to deliver their franchise In a TRUE PlayStation 3 high powered sequel. DDONT LET IT DIE WITH A NEW DEV LIKE CRASH PLEAAASE!!!!!!!!!!! JOKE????

Throughout all my life of gaming i’ve never been more confused/upset. I love Jak & Daxter so much……

StargamerX said:

April 1st, 1:14 pm

Ok, IGN gets a first look ALREADY on a SURPRISE announcement of the game on APRIL 1ST?! No.

mafecto said:

April 1st, 1:16 pm

so it’s true…sorry for all my obnoxious posts

EmperorKorea said:

April 1st, 1:16 pm

what’s with the PSP PS2 cross platform games? is this supposed to encourage peeps to buy a PSP? everyone will just get the PS2 version.

IceColdKilla44 said:

April 1st, 1:24 pm

This is both a huge YAY and a huge WTF for me.

I’m gonna be honest; the moment I saw the name “Jak and Daxter the Lost Frontier” on IGN 3 years ago, I was hoping we’d see another jak game on PS3. Now here I see it’s announced for the PS2 and PSP.

I like having another Jak game on PSP (I’ll probably buy the PS2 version as well anyway) but I REALLY want a Jak game on PS3.

Naughty Dog PLEASE tell me you’re working on that and not Uncharted 3 Already.

KazeEternal said:

April 1st, 1:28 pm

Wasn’t this slated for PS3? More importantly would High Impact be opposed to picking up the next God of War for PSP considering the other guys bailed.

dreu81 said:

April 1st, 1:30 pm


seriously though, the joke should have been:

“MGS4 Being Ported to 360 by end of ’09. Enraged fans riot in London.”

gamefan67 said:

April 1st, 1:31 pm

how come u guys didn’t make it on ps3

Thrasher20 said:

April 1st, 1:34 pm

Nice to see support for the last gen console! But it would have been more better if it was on Playstation 3 ;)

TubaDude49 said:

April 1st, 1:39 pm

Why not PS3? What about using that uncharted engine?

eureka007 said:

April 1st, 1:40 pm

wow, dont beleive it, looks really crappy and who the hell is high impact games. ver much an april fools!!!!!

sNsKid said:

April 1st, 1:41 pm

Jak & Daxter ftw. I loved the 3 main games. Spinoffs are lame.

Lanmanna said:

April 1st, 1:43 pm

Google is your friend.

You guys are just picking at straws because it is April Fools. If it was any other day you guys would believe it. >_>

angelcoma said:

April 1st, 1:47 pm

In for one copy on PS2. I have a PSP but….. I like playing it on my PS2 :)

I’m actually playing threw the Jak trilogy this month, so having this come out will be nice.

Do you guys have a better release window outside ‘Later this year’?

Lucreto said:

April 1st, 1:50 pm

What happens if you sold your PS2 and don’t have a PSP or backwards compatability will it appear on PSN?

curlyfry07 said:

April 1st, 1:51 pm

Cool,does anyone know the exact release date of the game?

davivman said:

April 1st, 1:52 pm

I’m glad to hear this is not a joke. PS2 development has dwindled to a mere shadow of what it was a few years ago. If developers make a steady stream of good software for the PS2, there is no reason why it can’t have a 15 year life cycle.

opsh18 said:

April 1st, 2:14 pm

what does jak look so weird. I like the old jak.

GSeussP said:

April 1st, 2:19 pm

If this is indeed real, do you know how sad it makes me that neither is it on the PS3 nor is Naughty Dog developing it. Epic sad face- :’-(

ShadowTalyis said:

April 1st, 2:20 pm

I notice it doesnt chow his face very well and why would you remake it for the ps2 it looks more like a remake than a sequel!
