Braid Anniversary Edition Announced At PlayStation Event

Braid Anniversary Edition includes extensive developer commentary, remastered artwork, and enhanced sound.


Braid Anniversary Edition was announced during PlayStation's State of Play event with a trailer showing off the remastered artwork and brand-new animations. The Anniversary Edition is an overhaul of Braid, the 2008 time-bending puzzle-platformer.

The game will also have enhanced sound with new mixes and variants on the original soundtrack, plus an extremely detailed developer commentary track. The commentary track is aiming to be incredibly thorough and, according to the trailer, "If you want to learn how video games are made, Braid anniversary edition will be a really good resource." You will be able to switch between the old art and the new art at any point during the game.

In GameSpot's Braid Review, critic Tom Mc Shea wrote, "The captivating ending sequence, which makes use of your rewind ability in a jaw-dropping new way, provides the exclamation point on this remarkable game, but the adventure is consistently engaging throughout the entire ride. The clever puzzles alone are enough to make this an adventure worth taking. Braid's deep and mesmerizing tale is evergreen: it is outside of and beyond time. It will never get old."
