Cult classic PS2 platformer Psychonauts launches on PlayStation 4 this spring.

1

Developer Double Fine's announcement comes hot on the heels of the successful crowdfunding of Psychonauts 2. Psychonauts 2, Double Fine confirmed, is also coming to PS4 "in a few years time".

There's a lot going on in the world of Psychonauts. Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is due out exclusively on PlayStation VR in 2016.

Eurogamer reviewed the first Psychonauts game way back in 2006, awarding it 8/10. Here's Kristan Reed's conclusion:

That said, the most gratifying part of summing up Psychonauts' worth is that its good points are simply so exceptional that they almost drown out most of the grumbles you might have about this level or that jump. By the time you've had the chance to get some distance upon finishing the game you'll begin appreciate that - on balance - it's such a thoroughly, intensely enjoyable experience for the vast majority of the time that you want the whole world to experience what is easily the funniest, and therefore most fun game of the year, or any other year. But if you're honest about it, you'll also admit that judged purely as a platform game it's by no means perfect, but who needs perfection when there are games like Psychonauts to play?
