SCEA has sent word announcing the launch of Jak 3, the third and final installment of the Jak and Daxter trilogy, which is only available on the Playstation 2.
"Jak 3 is an evolution of the Jak and Daxter story Naughty Dog wanted to tell when they first began work on Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy," said Grady Hunt, senior producer, product development, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We are pleased that Jak 3 is part of our stellar PlayStation 2 holiday lineup, as the game will immediately immerse players into a fast-paced action and seamless adventure that will drive the story along through twists and turns until the final climax — where all is finally revealed."
The events in Jak 3 take place one year after Jak and Daxter saved Haven City from Kor and the attacking Metal Heads, yet Haven City is still immersed in violence as three groups fight for control of the streets. Banished from the city because the locals hold him responsible for their situation, Jak begins his quest for redemption alongside Daxter and Pecker. To help him along the way, Jak now has Light Exo powers, and a new Morph Gun that can take 12 different forms.
