PS4's LocoRoco Remaster Out Now

LocoRoco's HD re-release is now available worldwide.


Update: LocoRoco Remastered is also now available on the US PlayStation Store. It costs $15 with seemingly no discount for PS Plus members.

Original story follows.

LocoRoco Remastered--the PS4 re-release of the 2006 platformer--is out today, May 9.

It's already available on the UK and Australian PlayStation Stores, costing £12 / AU $23 (£9.59 / AU $18.36 for PS Plus members), though it is not yet up on the US Store.

The original launched exclusively for PSP over 10 years ago and never came to any other platform. This will therefore be the first time the wacky title has been available on a home console.

Two more LocoRoco games launched for PSP after the original: LocoRoco 2 and a Halloween-themed spinoff called LocoRoco Midnight Carnival. It is unclear whether these will ever come to PS4.

LocoRoco Remastered was announced at last year's PlayStation Experience alongside re-releases for Wipeout, Crash Bandicoot, and Parappa the Rapper. The latter launched earlier this year, and we awarded it a 6/10 in our review. Our critic Justin Clark said it's unique but not without its problems:

"There's a generation of gamers who will find Parappa the Rapper Remastered validates all their happiest memories watching Parappa kicking and spinning with Chop Chop Master Onion again, more vibrant and colorful than ever before. But there will come a point when they have to confront how incongruous the aggravating gameplay is with how delightful everything else around it is. The aesthetics and vibe are still unlike anything else out there, and they're still worth the hassle. But the greatest trick Parappa the Rapper ever pulled was convincing the world it's not a broken game."
