A PS2 classic is being revived for PlayStation 5

A PS2 classic is being revived for PlayStation 5

PlayStation 2 classic Fantavision is being revived for the PlayStation 5 as Fantavision 202X.

Prepare yourselves for a major dose of nostalgia, my friends. Cast your mind back to the year 2000. You’ve just got home from school, loaded up your PlayStation 2. What do you decide to play? Armored Core 2? Tekken Tag Tournament? Nope. You open: Fantavision. That’s right. Japan Studio’s Fantavision is officially being revived for the PlayStation 5.

We all enjoy a good healthy dose of nostalgia from time to time. In fact, PlayStation Plus has just proved that to be true. Premium tier subscribers flocked to play Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue this year, making it the most popular PlayStation 1 game available on the platform. Let’s not forget how we all collectively freaked out when PS1 Spider-Man popped up in last week’s Across The Spider-Verse trailer. Today though, we’re here to talk about Fantavision 202X.

Check out the new trailer for Fantavision 202X below.

As reported by Comic Book, Japan-based studio Cosmo Machia have officially announced Fantavision 202X which will release digitally on both the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2 on 22 February, 2023. The title appears to be next-gen only. If you’ve never played Fantavision, it’s essentially a puzzle game that tasks players with stringing together fireworks - or ‘flares’ - of matching colours.

It may sound basic, but it’s one of those games that you won’t be able to stop playing. Fantavision 202X’s official synopsis reads, “Fantavision, initially released on PlayStation 2, will return in 2023 on PlayStation 5. Very simple rules, and once you get the hang of it, the game is more addictive than you can imagine! It's an artistic combination of action, shooting, strategy, and puzzles."

Fantavision wasn’t hugely commercially successful but over the years, it has become somewhat of a cult classic. Back in 2015, the game was rereleased via PSN but now, we’re finally getting a brand new instalment. Rejoice.
