Announcing Full Throttle Remastered on PS4, PS Vita

With the smell of burning asphalt hanging staunchly in the air we’re proud to announce that we’ll be remastering Tim Schafer’s classic LucasArts adventure game Full Throttle!

Following speedily in the still-smoking tire tracks of the Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle Remastered editions, Full Throttle Remastered on PS4 and PS Vita will complete the trilogy of Tim’s games from LucasArts that we’ve been given the chance to restore. Just like those games, we will make a Remaster with the quality, care, and attention to detail that can only come from involving the original creators.

Full Throttle Remastered will feature all new artwork, with high resolution backgrounds and animation, with each one of the many thousands of frames being repainted by hand. We’ll be aiming to restore the sound and music to a higher quality, and we’ll also fill the game with special features like concept artwork, commentary tracks, and as many other things as we can think of!

  • Very cool. One of the few point and click games I never played. Can’t wait to delve in the story and see what it’s all about.

    • I played the original when it came out & loved it. The music was so good too. Looking forward to it. Hoping it’s Widescreen & not 4:3.

  • More point and click games are welcome.

  • Amazing! This is one of the best games I’ve played in my PC in 90’s. Can’t wait!

  • One of my favourite games in the 90’s. I was hooked from start to finish – this will be insta-buy for me. Reading how the frames will be repainted by hand is incredible. The more special features the better!

  • Great!!! I always wanted to play it, but never did it.

  • I’m super excited for this.

  • Any chance of a physical release? (Assuming no since Grim Fandango didn’t either…)

    This should be insanely great news, and the remaster of Grim Fandango was pretty great.

    My enthusiasm is tempered because Day of the Tentacle Remastered is looking like it was severely underfunded/understaffed. No new voice tracks, no improvements to even basic animations, and the lip sync is still the random series of phonemes that are disconnected from the voice track. A producer claimed that fans didn’t want too much changed, but as a fan and old ScummVM/FreeSCI contributor, I say “that’s why you included the retro mode!!!!”

    I couldn’t get any confirmation of if the original Maniac Mansion was included on the in-game computer, either.

    Whoever it is in third-party productions who is overseeing this project, please encourage them to fix these issues!
