Full Throttle Remastered Announced For 2017

Is this the legacy of too much for too few that I see?

Gosh-o! I guess Double Fine are remaking every adventure game Tim Schafer worked on at LucasArts that they can get their hands on! Over the weekend they announced a 'Remastered' version of fantastic futurebiker adventure Full Throttle. It's fantastic, and it's been off store shelves for far too long. We'll have a while to wait yet, though: it's not due until 2017.

Double Fine say in the announcement:

"Full Throttle Remastered will feature all new artwork, with high resolution backgrounds and animation, with each frame being repainted by hand. We’ll be aiming to restore the sound and music to a higher quality, and we’ll also fill the game with special features like concept artwork, commentary tracks and as many other things as we can think of!"

I assume, and hope, that it'll have an option to play with the original pixel art graphics. Double Fine's Day of the Tentacle Remastered looks a whole lot less interesting than the original to my eye, but will have an option to use the original art. Their remastered Grim Fandango does look great, mind.

Yeah, Full Throttle's combat was iffy, but it is real good video gaming fun. It's got some gentle puzzling, a lovely story, and some hard-rocking, face-smashing biker action. Also, if you're not spoiler-averse, do read Cara's bit on its core relationship - not just because she compares me to Mo Corley.

Anyway here, from the 1995 original, is the coolest intro in all of video games:
