Gematsu has reported on a very interesting find for fans of old-school LucasArts games, particularly in the vein of overhead action-adventure titles like Zombies Ate My Neighbours.
Dug up by PlayStation Store price-scraping website, PS Deals, it looks as though the PS1 classic, Herc’s Adventures (also released on the SEGA Saturn), might be headed to PS5 and PS4 – more than likely by way of the PlayStation Plus Deluxe Classics catalogue. That’s based on the nature of the listing and the accompanying box art, plus the mined released date of June 20th, which coincides with the next drop of games for PlayStation Plus Extra/Deluxe subscribers.
If it eventuates, it’s an especially exciting get for fans or interested newcomers who have, up to now, either had to still be rocking a PS3 where the game had a re-release in 2014, or alternatively had to contend with astronomical market prices on original copies of the game, which go for anything between $100-$500 depending on the region and condition.
Herc's Adventures will be available as a PS1 title on PS5 and PS4, according to a PlayStation Store listing mined by PS Deals: https://t.co/I1hO8sMfwZ
Herc’s Adventures is a 1997 action adventure game for up to two players, taking on the roles of either Hercules, Atlanta or Jason on a quest to defeat Hades and save Persephone. It was praised by critics and players at the time for its humour, vibrant visuals, top-notch gameplay and mechanically-unique characters.
If Herc’s Adventures does come to the Classics catalogue in June it’ll follow a May drop of retro titles that includes three PSP games, Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow, Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light and Pursuit Force, as well as the PS4 remaster of Ghosbusters: The Video Game.
You can check out all of May’s PlayStation Plus Extra/Deluxe games, which are available to download now and also include some huge PS5 and PS4 titles like the excellent Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart or the just-released puzzler, Humanity, right here.
