While the mysterious Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still far away, gamers looking to play a high-definition overhaul of the original for Sony's system now have a date to circle on their calendars.
According to a response made by a Sony representative in the comments section of the PlayStation Store restoration blog entry, Beyond Good & Evil HD will launch for the PlayStation 3 on June 8. The game was originally pegged to debut on the PlayStation Network in May, but Sony's six-week online outage prevented that from happening.
Beyond Good & Evil HD features 1080p graphics, including enhanced character models and upgraded textures, and Ubisoft has also remastered the game's musical score. The game was released on the Xbox Live Arcade in early March.
The original Beyond Good & Evil launched in November 2003, winning critical acclaim for its mix of traditional action adventure elements and stealth segments. The game also drew praise for its picture-taking gameplay mechanic and engaging story of a journalist named Jade.
