No, it's not an April Fool's joke. 'sigh' We can't wait until this day is finally over and we don't have to add this verification to the start of a significant news article.

Anyway, Sony has sent out a press release, outlining the brand new Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier for the PSP and PS2. It's scheduled to release this fall and "will pick up from where the original Jak and Daxter left off." The Lost Frontier ought to be an immersive and colorful atmosphere, and you will traverse it with the goal of assisting Keira on her "quest to become a Sage and save the world from the threat of darkness." Now, we're going to see a bit of a departure from the standard platforming style as Jak will take to the skies in "five different aircrafts," and you will even be able to take down enemies with something called a Gunstaff that will nail airborne foes. The development team behind this production is High Impact Games, who were responsible for the solid Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters , so we're hoping for a worthwhile experience. Fans of the original PS2 Jak and Daxter will note the re-introduction of "Daxter" in the title, as the duo kinda went their separate ways in the past.

You may recall Daxter for the PSP, which was another top-quality platformer. But now, the heroes will be reunited, and although it's not a next-gen adventure, it's still worthy of your attention. More on this in the near future.

well dont forget this isn't from the original creators of Jak and Daxter which was Naughty Dog, so they might still have a plan for Jak and Daxter after Uncharted 2 comes through.

I heard about this game awhile ago, I'm kind of disappointed that it isn't a Jak game for the PS3. I really loved the Jak games artstyle, I would have love to see it rendered in High-def super-detailed graphics. *sigh*
But a PS2 game is god enough for me.

Agreed with all you indeed!

I PREFER Jak & Daxter to Ratchet & Clank by far!

It looks like Uncharted is Jak&Dax's replacement.But for real i think R&C should be replaced by J&D instead.
Sometimes you just don't get these devs.

I should be crying for joy right now….but I'm actually not – why? IT'S NOT BEING DEVELOPED BY NAUGHTY DOG!!!! I have a bad feeling about this…really I do. I absolutely adore the Jak and Daxter series – but I'm afraid that this might mark the ending of it and sort of bring it down from what it was. I hope not…but with no Naughty Dog behind it…it's hard for me to say.

Awesome
Even if it's for psp/ps2 it's good to see Jak and Daxter back together, kicking ass!

Can't wait!

Though it should be for ps3!

Dammit!!

i was really hoping it was a PS3 game, J&D is my favorite.

Uncharted is OK, but I need my Jak fix. I really hope he doesn't go the way of Crash, sold and done to death…

*crosses fingers and hopes to God its a bad 4/1 joke*

Maybe since it's PS2 and PSP they will find a way to bring to PSN to function on PS3.

Oh by the way this seems quite reasonable and most definitely isn't an April Fool's joke. I mean think about it…it's only logical to support the PS2 after Sony's price cut. So there's another Jak and Daxter game coming out for it – which is actually a great way to get started.

And as for the whole Sony's interest on the PSP…well – a Jak and Daxter game should help it out as well.

It's just good business. But…again like I said…it's not being developed by Naughty Dog here – don't expect the same Jak and Daxter and plus if they change the voice actors that'd suck.
