What you need to know

  • Remasters of Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, and Day of the Tentacle are coming to Xbox.
  • They are expected to release on Microsoft's platform later this year.
  • It's unclear if they'll only release on Xbox One or come to Xbox Series X as well.

During a livestream to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Full Throttle, Double Fine founder Tim Schafer confirmed to IGN's Ryan McCaffrey that the remasters of Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, and Day of the Tentacle would be making their way to Xbox.

This makes a lot of sense considering Double Fine was acquired by Microsoft last year and is now a part of Xbox Game Studios. We'll find out what new game the developer is working on in July when Microsoft reveals what's in store from its first-party developers on Xbox Series X. Psychonauts 2 has been conspicuously absent, so hopefully we'll see more of that soon.

If you're curious as to what these classic adventure remasters look like, they've already released on PlayStation 4.

It's unclear if these remasters are just coming to Xbox One or if they'll make their way to Microsoft's upcoming Xbox Series X as well. This will be the first time that any of the aforementioned games release on a Microsoft console.

  • Finally! So excited.
  • I am all for playing Full Throttle again. That was an incredibly fun and humorous game.
  • Really appreciate these moves by publishers and developers to bring these old classics to modern platforms where they can be more easily 'immortalized'. After gaming for some decades, one begins to appreciate that it is the 'software', the games themselves that are the soul of gaming, not so much the hardware which can more easily be outdated and replaced.
  • It would be damn interesting if they're Xbox exclusives. (Xbox Play Anywhere would be acceptable 😅😉)
  • Unlikely since they're already on PS4 ;-)
  • Now, if we could get Maniac Mansion...
  • Nice. I've always wanted to play these. I recently played Stacking and was pretty impressed by it.
