News: Grim Fandango Remastered Launches Today + Giveaway

Grim Fandango was a game that was critically acclaimed upon its original release in 1998 and today marks the day in which the world of gaming can either experience it all over again or for the first time.

Releasing on PS4, Vita, Pc, Mac, and Linux today (at a price of $14.99), Grin Fandango has not just been touched up but has had many new features added, including;
  • Updated visuals-The game now has new advanced lighting and high resolution textures on all the characters. Press the touchpad on PS4, select on Vita, or Z on PC to check out the old visuals.
  • Live orchestral score recorded by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
  • New control options-There are now both camera relative controls and tank controls for gamepad, touch controls for Vita, and point and click on PC.
  • Special features-There are director's commentary tracks that can be enabled featuring 14 members of the original team, as well as an in-game concept art browser.
As a fan of Lucas Arts adventure games and the fact that I completely missed this one as a child, I must say I am looking forward to playing this.  

Expect a full review for the PSN Version of Grim Fandango later this week.  On a final note, we do have a Steam Version of the game that we going to run a giveaway so keep your eyes peeled here and on our Twitter account later on today for more details.

  1. Never heard of this game before. I wish it came with a demo on the ps4 version because i don't think i'm comfortable spending $15 on something i know little about, even with the 'game of the year' title sites gave it.
