On today’s episode of the Xbox Podcast as hosted by Larry Hyrb, it was announced by Double Fine’s Tim Schafer that three beloved LucasArts classic adventure games would be making their way to Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, PC, and Android.
The remasters that’ll be arriving on the service are Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Full Throttle Remastered as well as the cult classic Grim Fandango Remastered, all revitalised and looking their absolute best for a new audience to fall in love with.
Here’s a brief overview of what each title entails, taken verbatim from Xbox’s blog post.
Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!
Full Throttle is a classic graphic adventure game from industry legend Tim Schafer, telling the story of Ben Throttle; butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a tale of Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.
Grim Fandango‘s epic story of four years in the after-life of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won countless awards and was considered one of the best games of the year upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and a unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.
