Today's Xbox Podcast show was a particularly exciting one, as Major Nelson sat down with the legendary Tim Schafer, the head of Double Fine, to discuss a very important announcement. No, it's not about Psychonauts 2, although we can't wait for that game to come out. Instead, Tim Schafer announced that the Classic LucasArts Remasters are heading to Xbox, and that players won't have to wait long at all to get their hands on the lovingly remastered renditions of cult favorites from the 90's.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Full Throttle Remastered, and the epic Grim Fandago Remastered are all heading to Xbox, ages after their release on other platforms, but Tim Schafer had even more to say than that. Not only is the collection coming to Xbox, but all three games will be available on Xbox Game Pass day one, meaning subscribers will be able to download and play the games at no additional cost. All three games will also support Xbox Cloud Gaming, so those who are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and play these revisited classics on their mobile device.
