Full PlayStation Classic Game List Officially Revealed

The PlayStation Classic game list has finally been unveiled in full thanks to a YouTube trailer shared by Sony earlier today. The mini console will feature 20 of the most influential games ever released on the original PlayStation, and will look to follow in the footsteps of the Super Nintendo Classic as a holiday must-have.

The PlayStation Classic was first announced months ago, with Sony unveiling five of what it felt would be the most popular titles present on the system's hardware. That announcement revealed Final Fantasy VIIWild Arms, and Tekken 3 among others, and was already enough to make pre-ordering a PlayStation Classic something of a nightmare for fans, although there are now online retailers who have some of the mini console still in stock.

Today, the PlayStation Classic game list is now a known entity thanks to an impressive and short trailer released earlier today on YouTube. Here's the trailer and a full breakdown of what games will be present on the mini console when it releases in early December:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Mr. Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director's Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

It's an impressive array of games and a who's who of titles that made the PlayStation such a success for Sony when it was first released. There's something for everyone in the PlayStation Classic's library, although it does seem to skew a little more heavily toward RPG and car titles, so fans of either of those genres will be especially excited by the mini console's full lineup.

Sony has also made the decision to provide regional variants of the PlayStation Classic, meaning that fans in Japan will be treated to a few different games as a result. Japan's list will include Arc the Lad and Parasite Eve, two other RPGs that found a lot of success in Japanese markets while remaining cult classics in the west.

Naturally, there will be a number of exclusions that fans will be curious to know about, but the same can be said of all the Classic-style consoles that have been released thus far. As we progress into more modern eras of video gaming - especially if the rumored N64 Classic is coming soon - the games library of each console will begin to get even more flooded with great choices despite the limited space. With that being said, however, the PlayStation Classic's lineup appears to be carefully cultivated to appeal to both previous owners of the iconic console and fans new to it that want to experience history, and that's going to be a major selling point for Sony heading into what should be a hectic holiday season for the video game industry.
