Hi everyone! I’m Josh Fairhurst, CEO of Limited Run Games. We’re a small company that has made preserving digital games in physical form and bringing them to you, the fans of these games, our primary mission. We believe that every game is an important piece of history that should be available in a tangible form for future generations to enjoy. Since 2015, we’ve enjoyed bringing PlayStation fans their favorite digital games in a highly collectible format that respects the developers’ hard work and artistic vision.
It’s my pleasure to announce that Limited Run Games, Naughty Dog, and Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC will be helping to preserve all four classic
Jak and Daxter PlayStation 2 games as physical discs available for the PlayStation 4 system.
Our first release, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is now available to purchase exclusively at www.limitedrungames.com in two editions: $24.99 for the Standard Edition and $74.99 for the more elaborate Collector’s Edition, which contains additional items described below. True to our name, the Standard Edition is limited to 5,000 copies, while the Collector’s Edition is limited to 2,500 copies. Once they’ve sold out, they will not be reprinted! If you miss this first batch — fear not — a second batch will be available in eight hours at 3PM PST/ 6PM EST. We will sell 2,500 copies of Standard Edition and 1,250 copies of the Collector’s Edition in each batch. Our releases can sometimes sell out quickly, so make sure to act fast if you want to own this! Folks who order Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy will receive their game by February 28, 2019.
Each game’s Collector’s Edition will include a special item that ties into the game. Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy will include a decorative metal Orb, a USB drive shaped like a memory card, trading card pack, exclusive poster, and a CD soundtrack. This will mark the very first time the Jak and Daxter soundtracks will be released! Additionally, each Collector’s Edition will include a piece of history from the series. We’ve secured never-before-seen historical documents to include in each of the Collector’s Editions. For each game, we will be producing a hardback foil-stamped book containing images from Naughty Dog’s original Jak and Daxter production binders. These binders dive into the world and characters in a depth fans have never seen before and offer a glimpse into how the games were formed.
Fans who purchase all four games (either Standard Edition or Collector’s Edition) will earn a free bonus item that I’m truly ecstatic about — a mock case for the game that never was — Jak 4! To be clear, Jak 4 is not a real game, as much as that pains me, and this case isn’t a promise that Jak 4 ever will exist. We’re including this case as part of these releases because our main goal here is to preserve and celebrate the history and legacy of the Jak series — even the parts of that history that never came to be!
The mock case will include a code redeemable for a PlayStation 4 system theme based on Naughty Dog’s original late-00’s Jak 4 concept art. There will be no other way to acquire this item outside of this, so make sure to order all four of our releases if you want to own it. Fans who purchase all four games will be mailed the Jak 4 mock case after June 30, 2019.
To celebrate the physical releases of the Jak and Daxter series, PlayStation and Naughty Dog are releasing a new classic Jak and Daxter theme for your PS4 system, as well as Jak and Daxter Stickers for Apple Devices — available now on the App Store. Our friends at Fangamer are also releasing a retro Jak and Daxter t-shirt created by Nina Matsumoto.
As fans of their work all the way back to Rings of Power, all of us at Limited Run Games are incredibly honored to be working with the talented team at Naughty Dog to make these physical editions reality! We’ll be releasing Standard & Collector’s Editions of Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing by June 2019 (actual release dates may be sooner, but we expect to fulfill all purchases by June 30, 2019). Stay tuned!
