Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto headline PlayStation Classic lineup

Full list of 20 games for the retro mini console have been revealed.

Sony has finally dropped the full list of 20 games for its PlayStation Classic edition, which launches on December 3rd. It’s largely sold out, so this will mostly be of interest to those who preordered it blind (or were really desperate to play Final Fantasy VII again). With 20 games spanning a broad number of genres, there’ll no doubt be something here to please everyone, even if there are some notable omissions.

Particular highlights include Grand Theft Auto (we’re talking top-down, old-school 2D here), Metal Gear Solid, Rayman, Resident Evil and Tekken 3. We already knew Final Fantasy VII was coming, so that doesn’t count. You can find the full list, along with the reveal trailer, below:

  • 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

Over in Japan, their game lineup looks similar, but a little different. Most notably, their version will include both Arc The Lad and its sequel, two fantastic 2D strategy RPGs that have Mass Effect-style save data progression between titles. The first game was a launch title in Japan and was insanely popular, but Sony America had a no-2D games policy for its launch titles, which is why the games took so long to come out over here.

Here’s the Japanese PlayStation Classic games reveal trailer:

Jem is an alumnus of Sumoner's Rift, knowing all there is to know about Riot's League of Legends. Thankfully that also imparts a sort of cosmic wisdom, which gives him an understanding of most games unless they have "creeps" instead of "minions". Deviant.
