PS4 Reportedly Getting Classic N64 Games This Month
Classic N64 games Turok and Turok 2 are reportedly coming to the PS4 on February 25.
A Reddit user posted the news after seeing a PS4 listing on the UK PlayStation Network.
User GermanZombie seemed keen to share the info with fellow gamers writing: "Just have a look into your app."
Both games are already listed on the PS4 app although not yet available on the website.
Nightdive Studios (who owns both games) has not yet commented on this.
GermanZombie's Reddit post has been deleted by moderators at the PlayStation 4 hub which is often a sign that the information has been leaked before it should have been.
According to PSU website, there have been some improvements in terms of visuals and AI. There is also a new multiplayer mode called 'Last Turok Standing' which was not available on the Switch version of the games.
Some Reddit users showed excitement at the prospect. User ThisLifeMan said: "No fu**ing way..... That would be amazing. I still break out the 64 specifically to play those, and Mario 64. Maybe a little Goldeneye and Conkers Bad Fur Day, but Turok lead the way! "
Others are a bit dismissive, like games collector RolodeX who said: "These games have been available on digital platforms for years now.

"I still have the original N64 version. Apart from the improved controls and higher resolution, I don't see myself paying full price again.
"I find it very unlikely that someone who just purchased a PS5 would feel attracted to a game with graphics from twenty, thirty years ago.
"They are relaunching these because there must be some appetite, but they've put very little effort into it especially because they've re-launched it lots of times over the past few years."
Turok and Turok 2 have been recently remastered and re-released on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is a 1997 first-person shooter initially launched via Nintendo 64 via Iguana Entertainment and Acclaim Entertainment. The game is an adaptation of a homonymous comic book series and sold so well that Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was released the next year. Turok 2 was released only for Nintendo 64.
Nightdive Studios remastered and released the series in 2021 for PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The games are considered by many as a classic. The new releases should also be compatible with PS5, which might help to bring these oldies to a new, fresher audience.
