More out of this year’s PlayStation Experience, this time from Double Fine. The studio has revealed that Psychonauts will be returning as a PlayStation VR game, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin. The sequel will continue immediately after the original, finishing the cliffhanger that’s been hanging for many, many years. Note that this is a different game from Psychonauts 2, which is currently being crowdfunded. Rhombus of Ruin will serve as the link between Psychonauts 1 and 2. Full Throttle Remastered was also revealed. Similar to the recent Grim Fandango Remastered, the upcoming re-release will feature new artwork, high-res backgrounds and animation, commentary tracks, and more.
