Secret Mode has announced that it’s bringing Sumo Digital Academy’s revival of the Amiga almost-classic Zool Redimensioned to PlayStation consoles on May 16, 2023.

Zool was originally released in 1992 on the Commodore Amiga before being ported to other consoles. Despite its availability on different platforms, it’s largely considered to be an Amiga cornerstone. 2021’s Zool Redimensioned was a ground-up remake that bases itself on the Amiga version. It features widescreen support, which is a pretty revolutionary change, considering it was a game that would sometimes punish quick movements.

I enjoyed it for what it was. It was a worthwhile update, but I don’t really think about Zool Redimensioned all that often anymore. In my review, I called it a “comfortable slice of ‘90s platforming,” which still sounds appropriate to me now. Good call, past me.

Along with this port comes multiplayer in the form of party modes Zool’s Gold, Rool of Zool, and Ball Brawl. Not much has been shown off about them. The trailer shows off Rool of Zool, but it’s hard to really make out what’s happening. I see bosses though, so it kind of looks fun. The patch will also be coming to the existing PC version. My family won’t play platformers with me because I exist on a higher plain of skill in that genre. Every genre, really, but don’t tell them I said that.

Zool Redimensioned is currently available on PC, and will be making its way to PS4 and PS5 on May 16.
