PlayStation has announced that Indigo Prophecy (commonly known as Fahrenheit outside North America) will be re-released on PlayStation 4 on August 9th.
The classic PS2 adventure game will be available on the PlayStation Store and and feature improved visuals and trophy support. The port is adapted by the International Software Development Group at SIEA.
“When the game launched, we were thrilled by the critical reception,” said Guillaume de Fondaumiere, co-CEO of Q
The game became the best-reviewed adventure game since Grim Fandango. We received more than 50 accolades for Best Adventure Game, Best Story, Best Original Score, and even some Game of the Year awards. The game ‘found its audience’ and became commercially successful, which enabled us to fund a prototype (The Casting, for those old enough to remember!) leading us to sign our next game with Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios,” Fondaumiere continued.
Indigo Prophecy first launched in 2005 and was directed by David Cage. Cage would go on to work on Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and the upcoming Detroit: Become Human. Many consider these games to be spiritual successors to Indigo Prophecy.
Earlier this week Sony announced another classic PS2 game, Ape Escape 2, coming to PS4.
