Following an Amazon leak earlier this month, Nordic Games has officially confirmed that Legend of Kay: Anniversary is targeting release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC/Mac in Summer 2015.

A “thoroughly remastered version of the original game,” Legend of Kay: Anniversary will retail for between $19.99 and $29.99, depending on the platform. The press release didn’t confirm if the game runs at 60fps on PS4, as Amazon suggests.

Here’s the description for Legend of Kay: Anniversary:

Legend of Kay Anniversary is a colourful action adventure, blending the gameplay of a platformer with dynamic fight combos. The protagonist, Kay, is a cat who studies martial arts and gets involved in an uprising against Shun, the leader of the gorillas, who is oppressing the “cat people” in his reign. On his journey through the lands of Yenching, Kay has to master his martial arts skills, face various enemies and overcome numerous challenges.

Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games said:

Legend of Kay was a true gem on the PlayStation 2 platform. Our strategy is to focus on our IPs and make them available to as many players as possible and also on the current generation of consoles. We keep our options open to expand on the Legend of Kay franchise in the future.

Peter Thierolf, Managing Director at Kaiko, added:

Working on Legend of Kay Anniversary was and still is quite remarkable. We were able to rediscover the attention to detail with which the original game had been crafted and pushed ourselves to be true to that original spirit. This was about the best time we had within the last couple of years.
