    Overall, LocoRoco might be one of my favorite Sony first party titles of all time and I’m thrilled it’s seeing new life on the PS4 (which maybe means a new sequel someday). I still feel like it was perfectly built to be played on a handheld, the tilting just fits it more naturally, but since the Vita is all but dead, the PS4 is the only option we have, and that’s fine by me. Another PSP cult classic, Patapon, looks to be the next PSP remaster to come to the PS4 and based on the sales of these I’m hopeful Sony invests in more PSP titles that haven’t seen the light of day since the handheld died. I’m happy to recommend remasters of the PSP library if they're done with this much care and effort.

    LocoRoco Remastered was a masterpiece in the platform genre, and it is again today. The gameplay and the level design didn't aged at all, and now LocoRoco is even more good looking on TV in the glory of 4K resolution (for PS4 Pro users).

    This game still is a very funny and entertaining installment where music and graphics are a true beauty, even though its remastered version is not as good as it could be.

    What we’re left with is a decent port of PlayStation’s happiest game. If you can forgive the occasional audio bug and a teensy bit of slowdown, you’ll have a wonderful time with LocoRoco Remastered. Fans will no doubt pick this up regardless, but newcomers should expect a kaleidoscopic, sing-songy platformer with simple, tactile controls, a catchy soundtrack, and a decent variety of stages to roll through. It’s well worth the price of entry, and a pleasant reminder that not all games need to make you feel empowered or make you think. Sometimes, it’s enough simply to make you smile.

    Despite certain control limitations and its short duration, this game retains all its charm and joyful spirit. It looks great in 4K, by the way.

    LocoRoco Remastered and happiness go hand in hand. This game will make you happy and will have you humming those songs for the rest of the month. The controls are not the most precise, though, and where is LocoRoco 2 in this remaster?

    Unlike PaRappa The Rapper Remastered, LocoRoco's 11 years of rest haven't affected the product. 4K resolution enhances lines and colours, but it's still the same PSP game, no extras or remarkable bonus apart from trophies. And at a not-so-competitive price among so many offers or PSN games.
