Good news, Jak and Daxter fans: The first three games in the Jak and Daxter series, plus Jak X: Combat Racing, are coming to PlayStation 4 later in 2017 through the "PS2 classics" label.

It doesn't look like any of the games are getting any kind of remaster aside from an upgrade to 1080p resolution — but for anyone missing this classic franchise, any kind of access to the series on current-gen systems is good news. Notably, Jak X: Combat Racing won't have any online support and will only support local split-screen co-op, according to PlayStation.

PlayStation hasn't announced a release date or price yet, but we've embedded the announcement trailer below.
