Amiga platformer Superfrog is making a comeback. Rather than get a whole new game that couldn't possibly live up to fans' expectations, Team17 will put its energy into Superfrog HD, which features brand new visuals. No screenshots yet, but the art above shows where the studio is at.

"We're extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it's the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return," said managing director Debbie Bestwick. "Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better."

Having no fond memories of the original Amiga version or knowledge of how well it has aged, I'm eager to see how Superfrog HD turns out. A decades-old game getting revamped graphics like this doesn't happen all that frequently.

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more
