As much as we love Uncharted and its band of merry men and women, we still miss Naughty Dog’s good old Jak and Daxter. And we’ve always known that our favourite developer misses them too. The question is whether Naughty Dog themselves will be bringing the two PlayStation heroes back to us. We decided to ask them in our exclusive chat.
It was one of our most popular questions sent in by you guys – is Naughty Dog bringing back Jak and Daxter? We put the question to the studio’s community strategist Arne Meyer in the second part of our interview (part one is here), who replied:
“Oh, we love Jak and Daxter! Being able to give our fans new ways to experience that universe would be an awesome thing.”
So…what’s cooking? Well we got another glimpse at Jak at E3 this year. Arne explains:
“Thankfully we had some great news for our fans on that front when SCE revealed Heroes on the Move at E3. The game brings Jak and Daxter, along with the Ratchet and Clank, and Sly Cooper franchises together to create a new adventure game built for the ground up for the PlayStation Move.”
As nice as that all is, we know Naughty Dog will want to use all their expertise to bring Jak to the PS3. But they’re a little busy on another project. Might they want to pass Jak over to another developer? Arne added:
“We haven’t made any concrete plans regarding Jak at this time, so we haven’t discussed if this was a potential option.”
Get to those planning desks, dog’s! You read the first part of our interview with Naughty Dog right here.
