The beautifully animated side-scrolling adventure game Gris is coming to PS4 next week, Nov. 26, developer Nomada Studio announced today. The new version is to feature upscaled resolutions, as well as various other visual and audio performance improvements.
Gris had previously been a Nintendo Switch console exclusive, earning critical acclaim when it launched last year. The game was lauded for its exceptional presentation and abstract story.
Nomada Studio programmer Roger Mendoza said of the updated PS4 version of Gris:
“Our artists and designers went over the game in meticulous detail, updating each of the game’s beautiful scenarios. The art team revamped over five thousand unique assets to 2x – 4x higher resolution to take advantage of the PS4 Pro and 4K displays.
Similarly, the majestic score from Berlinist was integrated into the game with less compression so that the music and audio design all sound cleaner and brighter. Additionally, we added some ‘quality of life’ improvements and a PlayStation-exclusive secret homage to one of our favorite games and an inspiration for Gris.”

Gris will be available at PlayStation Store November 26 and physical PS4 edition from Limited Run Games is available now from their store.
Gris also launched for mobile devices earlier this year.
