Originally making its North American debut back in 2001 on the PS2, Okage: Shadow King has been revealed as the newest addition to the PS4’s growing library of classic PS2 games. Speaking in the most recent episode of PlayStation Blogcast, it was announced the game will be available digitally Mar 22.
Upscaled visually, the game has also been reworked with trophies, including a platinum.
Though no price was discussed, it’s likely Okage will fall in the area of other PS2 classics, between $9.99 and $14.99.
A classic, party-styled JRPG, Okage: Shadow King follows Ari, a young boy that agrees to allow an imprisoned evil king to possess his shadow in the hopes of saving his sister. Once free of his containment and possessing the boy’s shadow, the king drags Ari into a quest to defeat all the false Evil Kings that have risen while the real one has been contained.
Okage: Shadow King joins the likes of Arc the Lad: Twilight of Spirits, multiple Star Wars titles, Dark Cloud 1 and 2, and even multiple Grand Theft Auto titles, all already having made the leap from PS2 to PS4. It was also recently announced Psychonauts will be coming to PS4 as well.
