Update:

Double Fine has confirmed that Psychonauts on PS4 has widescreen support and will be released in Europe “in a few weeks.”

Original Story:

Back on Sunday, Sony listed Psychonauts for release on PlayStation 4 today, June 7. However, shortly afterwards they said, “Psychonauts is coming out soon, but not this week. Apologies for the error. Stay tuned for final timing!”

Well, with the PlayStation Store update today in North America, Psychonauts is now available as the latest PS2 on PS4 title. The Trophy list isn’t up on Exophase yet, but the $9.99 price tag suggests it doesn’t have a Platinum.

A 2.3GB download, here’s the description for Psychonauts:

This classic action/adventure platformer from acclaimed developers Double Fine Productions follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin. In his quest to join the Psychonauts–an elite group of international psychic secret agents–he breaks into their secret training facility: Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp. But this is no average psychic summer camp! A mysterious villain has kidnapped Raz’s fellow campers and stolen their brains. Now he must use his psychic powers of Telekinesis, Levitation, and most of all his ability to project himself into the minds of others–to find the loose noodles and keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Fight mental demons! Uncover hidden memories! Sort emotional baggage! Explore the fantastic realm of the inner mind! Join the Psychonauts!’

Psychonauts isn’t up on the European PlayStation Store yet.

There’s two more Psychonauts games coming to PS4, with Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin set for launch on PlayStation VR this year and Psychonauts 2 scheduled for fall 2018.

Will you be getting Psychonauts?
