Classic Psychonauts comes to PS4 this Spring

Double Fine’s cult favourite is heading to PlayStation Store soon

We’re super excited to announce that our classic PS2 platformer Psychonauts is heading to PS4 this spring!

Psychonauts follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin in his quest to join an elite group of international psychic secret agents, the Psychonauts! He runs away from the circus and breaks into their secret training facility, Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp.

As he begins his training by psychically delving inside the consciousnesses of his tutors and those around him, he realises all is not as it seems, and soon embarks upon a psychic odyssey through a variety of levels set inside the minds of misfits, monsters, and madmen!

You may have seen Psychonauts in the news a fair bit recently. Last month at PlayStation Experience we announced that Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin would be coming exclusively to PlayStation VR in 2016, and for the last month we’ve been running a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to make Psychonauts 2.

We’re happy to report that we are now 100% funded, so can officially announce that Psychonauts 2 will also be coming to PS4 in a few years time — that’s a whole lot of Psychonauts to look forward to!

i wonder if this will be the first time i beat the game xD

This one should be in PS+ to say thanks for backing 2nd game on kickstarter :)
Looking forward to this.
And Platinum in this game (3rd time I’ll finish this game, finally with trophies! :)


I felt like I was one of the only people that tweeted about this happening, glad to hear that I wasn’t and also really happy to see this incredible original title coming to the PS4 ahead of the sequel. Cannot wait! Honestly one of my favourite game companies ever.

Never played Psychonauts so i’m looking forward to it, i also backed Psychonauts 2 on Fig, so that’s something to look forward to :)


Awesome news! Always wanted to play Psychnauts.
A Vita version would be über kool..!!


Oops… Psychonauts!
Missed the ‘O’.


Time to play this gem again! Love it!

Great!Never played this on Ps2 so interested to see what all the fuss is about :) trouble is I barely get enough time to play the Ps4 games let alone play the Ps2 games!


Has the frame blending been fixed for EU PS2 emulation? I’d love to get Psychonauts again but this is putting me off getting any PS2 games for emulation.

GrumpyMcGrump 12 January, 2016 @ 16:15

have you tried playing one of the games? most people wouldnt even notice its there


No, I had been waiting for news that it had been fixed. Just watching the Digital Foundry vids and some streams. Only way to know for sure is to play it myself I guess :)

Let’s hope they’re secretly using the PC version as the starting point for this release. It supports a native 1080p resolution, has decent controller support, and doesn’t suffer from the washed out colors that were present in the PS2 version.

Yay Raz! Woohoo!

will it have a Plat trophy?

Beware: another Double Fine port


I love old classic PS platforming games like Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank and Crash Bandicoot, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. Not to mention that I loved Double Fine’s PS4 version of Grim Fandango so I’m really excited. :D

Fantastic! I will happily play through this wonderful game again. Third or fourth time, I guess, but can’t wait anyway!

But still no word of letting us play the PS2 games we already own on PS4…

Great news! Psychonauts was one of my favourite games back in the day. Though, I really hope they do something about some of the NPC character models. Some will look more than slightly ugly in 1080p.


Oh god no! Please, not the awful PS2 version?

Why god, why??


Bring this to my Vita too!
