Sony’s demonic action game is set to be the next PlayStation 2 classic to make its way to PlayStation 4
Sony have announced that PS2 game Primal is heading to PS4 later this week.
Primal was first released back in 2003 — the same year the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Oakland Raiders in the Superbowl (yeah that old). Now, 13 years later it will be available on the PS4 with full trophy support and 1080p resolution.
What is Primal?
Primal is a demonic action game developed by SCE Cambridge Studio (now known as Guerilla Cambridge). In it, players are put in control of Jen, a 21-year-old woman with supernatural abilities that allow her to transition in and out of different demonic forms. The game’s plot centers around Jen searching for her lost boyfriend through a series of demonic realms. As the story progresses, more is revealed about Jen’s past and her relationship with her boyfriend.
Upon release on March 25, 2003, Primal garnered a 73 on Metacritic.
A price or exact release date was not divulged, however, given the price range of past PS2 classics released on the PS4, expect it to be anywhere from $7.99- $15.
Primal is a great addition to the ever-growing list of PS2 classics on PS4, but its no Sega Soccer Slam. And I’’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, no Sega Soccer Slam, no party.
