A publisher will rarely make a legitimate announcement on April Fool’s Day. For many years now in the games industry, there has been an annual tradition to either reveal concept art or do mock-up releases to tickle everyone’s fancy on this day of jokes. While that sometimes crosses over into being hurtful (I still pine for that Ducktales QuackShots remaster), other times we do concrete information about a new release.

Nightdive Studios, purveyors of excellent remasters, has done the latter today. In an announcement likely nobody was expecting, save for maybe one of the three people who owned a 3DO, Nightdive will be remastering the console FPS game PO’ed for modern platforms. Many thought this was initially a big hoax, but a Steam store page soon emerged and the joke became real. We’re all about to get PO’ed!

As with Nightdive’s previous remasters, PO’ed: Definitive Edition (as it is being called) will receive a ton of quality-of-life enhancements, widescreen support, a brand-new difficulty option, and localization support for multiple languages. The company hasn’t announced platforms yet, but with previous Nightdive remasters landing on basically everything, it’s pretty safe to say this will land on Nintendo’s hybrid console.



I’ve never played PO’ed, so I can’t tell you if it’s any good. I’m mainly excited because Nightdive Studios is doing its best to ensure that obscure and bizarre games from the past don’t get lost to the annals of time. Even if PO’ed is actually bad and will make me PO’ed, I’d still rather have it in this enhanced form than gone forever.
