Ahead of this year's PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, Sony announced that some classic PlayStation 2 titles will be made available to download and play on the PlayStation 4. Eight titles are part of the initial batch revealed, which include two RPGs developed by Level-5 — Dark Cloud and Rogue Galaxy — and will be available to download today in North America and Europe. Both Dark Cloud and Rogue Galaxy will cost $14.99, with the European pricing not yet confirmed.
Dark Cloud was originally released in 2001 and combines its action RPG base with elements of city-building games. The game sees players control Toan, a young boy whose village is destroyed in a dark ritual and is tasked with return the sealed-away people and buildings. Dark Cloud received a spiritual sequel, also released for PlayStation 2, titled Dark Cloud 2in North America or Dark Chronicle in Europe and Japan.
Rogue Galaxy, meanwhile,was released in North America and Europe in 2007. The game is an action RPG and features a number of gameplay aspects from Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. Unlike those two games, however, the game features a more Sci-Fi story and setting, with players travelling between a number of planets. A couple of videos showing Rogue Galaxy running on the PS4 emulation can be viewed below.
