More PS2 Games Look To Be Coming To PlayStation Plus Classics With New Enhancements

All for this!

It looks like Sony is finally going to start adding more retro PS2 titles to its offering of PlayStation Classics for those with a PlayStation Plus Deluxe subscription, after a new title was unearthed by the PS Deals website, which has a knack for revealing things ahead of time as it scrapes the PlayStation Store’s backend.

The game in question is 2002’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars for PS2, with the revealed PlayStation Store listing already containing a heap of details including that the game will come with similar enhanced features to the PS1 and PSP games already in the Classics lineup, like up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters.

Of course, a limited number of PS2 games are already available for PS4 after Sony began making an effort early in that console’s life cycle to re-release some titles, and these are already a part of the PlayStation Plus Deluxe catalogue, but it looks as though now they’ll be properly converted and tested for PS5 as well as PS4 using the same technology as the PS1/PSP Classics. Many of the current PS2 games like Ape Escape 2 are quite broken when played on the newer console, so this is great news.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is listed with a June 11th release date, which also suggests it could be part of the next wave of PlayStation Plus/PlayStation Plus Deluxe titles.

Here’s the PlayStation Store description for this new addition:

This title has been converted from the PlayStation®2 version to the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 consoles and provides newly added features. Consequently, there may be times where the title plays differently from the PlayStation®2 version, or where some features may cause the title to not function properly. This version does not support the PlayStation®2 console’s peripherals, therefore some functionality may not be available.
