The Escapist reports that sometime in the Land of 2011, a high-definition remake of cult classic Beyond Good & Evil will be coming to PSN and XBLA. New textures, higher-poly models, remastered soundtrack. Nothing else about the game (including the vexing controls) are set to be changed, but this game is worth your time if you’ve missed it. Which I did. Despite trying several times to get into it. And owning it on two platforms. Three if you count the Steam sale.
Seriously, though, Beyond Good & Evil is one of those Really Important games that have honest to god literary merit and thought-provoking tendrils of goodness running through their very core. French creator Michel Ancel knocked this one out of the park, and it’s a pity that the game never achieved much in sales figures. Keep your eye out for the HD remake, or if you don’t mind old textures, lower-poly models, and a not-remastered soundtrack, grab it on Steam or in an Xbox bin today.
