Playstation Classic Games Lineup Revealed

Sony recently revealed the full game list for the upcoming release of the Playstation Classic system. Slated for released on December 3rd, 2018, the miniature version of the PS1 will include 20 hit games, though some of them might not be considered a hit, or rather missed opportunities.

Playstation Classic (NA Version)

Here are the complete list of games to be included with the Playstation Classic:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr. Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil (Director’s Cut)
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

It’s no surprise that Metal Gear Solid made the cut, as well as Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil. However, there are a few that are MIA, such as PaRappa the Rapper, Tomb Raider, and the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games. Perhaps it’s a licensing thing, in addition to said titles already having the re-release treatment.

For those in Japan, the list differs. The Playstation Classic in Japan is getting Square-Enix’s underrated RPG title, Parasite Eve, as well as SaGa Frontier. Here is the full list of games the Japanese release is getting, in addition to some of the announced NA and EU inclusion:

  • Arc the Lad
  • Arc the Lad 2
  • Armored Core
  • Biohazard Director’s Cut (aka “Resident Evil: Director’s Cut”)
  • Final Fantasy VII (International version)
  • G Darius
  • Gradius Gaiden
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Megami Ibunroku Persona: Be Your True Mind (aka “Revelations: Persona”)

  • SaGa Frontier
  • Super Puzzle Fighter IIX
  • Tekken 3
  • Toshinden (aka “Battle Arena Toshinden”)
