So it’s official! The Dead Island franchise is coming back into our gaming lives and it’s bringing with it the 16-bit side-scroller spin-off Retro Revenge. Both the original game and its pseudo-sequel Riptide are being remastered for this console generation in a collection that will also include all previously released DLC, though that’s not necessarily a selling point.

Here’s an overview of what’s new in the Definitive Collection:

– Supports 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second
– Textures have been re-done in higher resolution and quality
– Photo-realistic new lighting system
– Physically based shading Image quality enhancement via anti-aliasing
– Improved quality game models and geometry assets
– HBAO and motion blur effects
– Update game UI for Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide

At $39.99 (a shitload in Rand), the definitive Dead Island experience will arrive on May 31 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

What do you think? A yeah or a nay? We say “YEAH!!!!”
