Beyond Good & Evil: HD!!!!! (XBLA/PSN) 2011

IGN

Next year you'll get to either relive the experience or see why it's a cult classic when Beyond Good & Evil HD is released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. This will be the same game released in 2003, only now it will have 1080p visuals, the character models are receiving makeovers, textures are being polished, and the soundtrack is being re-mastered. Achievements/trophies and online leaderboards have also been added.

Awesome news! I only got partway through the GameCube version and meant to start over one of these years. Now I'll just wait for this HD remake. That's a good sign for the sequel too!

1080p, huh? That's pretty hot if that's true, I would assume it's possible since they're older models, etc.

I still pull my GameCube copy out once a year or so.. this will be an awesome replacement if only to not have to play it in the non-widescreen widescreen mode of the original.

Wonder what this means for the sequel. Is it still being made?

As of E3, yes. It's a small team that's working on it and there is no rush to get it done.

Yes, it is. It's actually been confirmed several times recently since it has been MIA lately (at E3, etc.).

This is probably being released to help build steam for it.

I'd say it's a good sign for the sequel.

I stand by my conspiracy theories of titles that were never supported via backward-compatibility on the 360. I think this and the Prince of Persia trilogy really stand out in their omissions that we shouldn't be surprised by this remake or the rumored (at least on the PS3) PoP collection:

IIRC, the big three, at the time, everyone was clamoring for were:

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Beyond Good & Evil
Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

... and all three got/or are getting the HD/re-release treatment.

This is seriously one of my favorite games ever. First day buy for me, even if it's like 20 bucks.

I tried to play this on the PC but the controls were so terrible that I gave up. I really do want to play it, so I'm excited by this news.

Don't let that sour the game for you, the PC version is a complete mess.

I never played it when it came out originally. I'm looking forward to finding out what all the excitement is about.

I can't wait for people to play it - then come back all pissed off and say that it sucked.

I for one though - already have my spacebucks ready for this.

Like Okami, BG&E is one of the best Zelda games not named Zelda.

I wouldn't be surprised, it's been hyped up to hell (and yeah, I'm part of the problem, heh).. even if it deserves it to whatever degree, there's bound to be people that it will never live up to that for.
