For many years people have been soliciting Tim Schafer to revisit more of his old Lucasarts-era titles, but the response has always seemed to have been locked up in licensing issues. However, today it's looking like the some of the wheels may have come unstuck following Disney's Lucasarts acquisition, as a remake for Grim Fandango was announced at Sony's E3 2014 press conference.
The announcement confirmed a remastered version of the classic adventure title for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the works at Schafer's Double Fine Productions studio, and further Twitter comments
from Schafer suggest that it will be making its way to other platforms too:
@TimOfLegend: Talk about other platforms soon! Sony's been a great help making this happen & we're excited to be working with them on the console version!
Watch the heart-felt reveal during the PlayStation media briefing below.
