In the blog post, SIEA associate producer Bryan Pardilla remembers about what made Jak II such a special release for the young fans of the series. Talking about how a voice given to Jak changed the gameplay.
“The narrative tropes Naughty Dog explored in Jak and Daxter laid the foundation for the evolution of their highly innovative story telling. It put them on the path that led to the creation of future blockbuster franchises like Uncharted and The Last of Us and to think it all started with giving Jak his own voice. Jak 3 on PS4. In celebration of Naughty Dog’s rich heritage, it is with great pleasure that we present to you these Jak & Daxter classics on the PS4.”
