Sony writes: "Set on an unnamed planet, these games follow the two protagonists, Jak and Daxter, as they try to unlock the secrets of their world and discover mysteries left behind by the Precursors".

Jak 2, Jak 3 and Jak X Combat Racing were developed by Naughty Dog for PlayStation 2 between 2003-2005.

The Legacy Dashboard Theme will be released on December 6 for PS4 (the same day three Jak & Daxter PS2 Classics hit the system).

Suffice it to say; if you're looking for a piece of gaming history, you'll find it with the Jak and Daxter games. The games can be bought for $15 apiece, or as part of a bundle. As the games progressed, the story in each got better, edgier, and more interesting with the depth added by this creative choice.

"In 2003, Naughty Dog released Jak II for the PlayStation 2 system, and something wonderful happened for the Jak and Daxter franchise: Jak was able to speak for the first time, enabling players to hear and experience Jak's own point of view using his voice, instead of relying exclusively on Daxter's witty banter and exposition". Interestingly, they chose to take the franchise in another direction when they released their fourth main game, Jak X Combat Racing in 2005. In the games, Jak and Daxter fight evil forces and prove that good will triumph over in the end.

The trailer, released today, showcases each of the three games in Naughty Dog's pre-Uncharted, pre-The Last of Us series: Jak and Daxter.

Together, the entirety of Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter installments will be playable on the current Sony platform.
