Full Throttle Remastered Set To Arrive 2017 For PS4, PS Vita, PC
(Last Updated On: December 4, 2016)

Double Fine Productions released a new trailer over the weekend during the PlayStation Experience 2016 event in Anaheim, California for Full Throttle Remastered. The new trailer is just over a minute long.

It features a couple of snapshots of gameplay footage and cinematics from the 1990s point-and-click adventure from Double Fine, back before the founder outed himself as a bigot.

You can snatch a look at the trailer below.

Oh man, that theme song kicking in at the end of the trailer… I love that song from The Gone Jackals. It’s called “Legacy” and I regularly pop it on because it’s such an awesome track. It was back when game developers didn’t mind having kick-butt heroes be kick-butt without having to shoehorn in some kind of sappy, ridiculous, overwrought and poorly executed social message in every game. Some games back then were simply made to be fun and entertaining.

Obviously since it was posted up on the PlayStation YouTube channel it only features the PlayStation devices that it’s releasing on, but Blues scoured the net and found out that the game will also be available on PC.

The game followed Ben as his biker gang was framed for a murder they didn’t commit. In a future where cars drive without wheels, Ben is an old-school biker who likes to keep his tires planted firmly on the ground. The rough-and-tumble anti-hero has to solve a few puzzles, punch some people in the face, and even partake in a Road Rash-style series of combat mini-games. It was one of my favorite games from back in the 1990s.

They don’t give an exact date when the remastered version of Full Throttle is due to drop but you can expect at some point in 2017. The graphics have been updated, the sound has been improved and the cinematics digitlally revamped. And now PlayStation gamers will get a taste of the title for the first time on the PS4 and PS Vita.

    I have to say, this is a really ugly remaster, and the vector-drawn art style does not suit the game at all. Maybe it worked well enough in Day of the Tentacle when everything was pixel art and stylized round character design, but the vehicles and backgrounds just don’t look right when they’re not prerendered 3D animations.

    I never really got to play the original Full Throttle back in the day and I sort of want to play it now, but I’m not sure I could in good conscious support Double Fine after all the bad blood brewed by Tim Schafer.

    I hate that he is associated with this, as while I’m certain there are plenty of people working on the project who are decent folks who deserve support, I cannot reconcile that with the idea of giving money to someone who has publicly and repeatedly proclaimed their loathing for myself and thousands of others.

      Just pirate the original. Lucas Arts are probably not going to care about something they published 20 years ago.

        LucasArts doesn’t. The Mouse on the other hand..

      Same, I liked the original, but now that I know Tim Schafer is consistently a massive cunt, I don’t want anything to do with him or his shit. Besides, I’m sick of all these damn remakes/remasters.
