Limited Run Games, in collaboration with Square Enix, has made an exciting announcement: the release of the Gex Trilogy for modern consoles. Fans of the wisecracking gecko will soon have the opportunity to relive the classic platforming adventures on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam). The collection includes Gex, Gex: Enter the Gecko, and Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko.
Gex, the charismatic and pop culture-savvy gecko, first emerged on the gaming scene in 1994. Developed by Crystal Dynamics, Gex quickly became a mascot character for the 32-bit generation. The first game, titled Gex, was initially released on the 3DO, PC, and SEGA Saturn, before making its way to the PlayStation. It introduced players to the world of Gex and was a 2D platforming game, filled with references to pop culture and challenging levels based on classic movies and TV shows.
Gex: Enter the Gecko marked the gecko's return and first foray into 3D, this time gracing the PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and PC platforms. It was a solid early 3D platforming game that expanded on the series' humorous take on the genre.
Finally, Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko took players on an action-packed 3D adventure across multiple platforms, including the PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and PC.
There aren't many details about this upcoming collection yet, and it's not clear at this time whether this release will feature simple ports or full-on remakes of the classic games.
