Limited Run Games was announced during today’s livestream as the Gex Trilogy, a collection of Gex, Gex: Enter the Gecko, and Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko, officially hits the latest consoles.
Sneaky Gecko is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The stream didn’t reveal a release date or reveal any gameplay, but did mention that it was remastered on the Carbon Engine.
Gex was first released for EDO in 1995 and has since been ported to the original PlayStation, Sega Saturn and PC. Sequels were produced in 1998 and 1999, but publisher Square Enix has not released a new one since.
But fans have long hoped for a return. The game was heavily inspired by American television, and the wise character earned a solid name for its voice work. Comedian Dana Gould provided the voice of Jex in the North American version, actors Leslie Phillips and Danny John-Jules provided the voice of Jex in the UK version, and Mitsuo Senda provided the voice of Jex in the second Japanese version.
IGN gave Jex a rating of 6/10particularly praised Gould’s voice work, writing, “Usually sensible narration sucks, but here it really works.”
Limited Run Games also announced a number of other facts during today’s livestream. Original clock tower remastered.
