We assumed it was going to happen and now we have official word that Pumpkin Jack will be getting that full PS5 and Xbox Series X treatment. All of which will be just in time for us to dive back into the game over the Halloween period. Headup Games is looking to offer us all this upgrade or new version of Pumpkin Jack on October 27th, so get those systems ready for the hellspawn to crawl up once more. It is the season and given that the game launched around the bridging time for the consoles, it makes complete sense that we would be getting this once more. Not to mention that it was a fun game to behold even before all of this.
Before we all get too excited, Pumpkin Jack does hail from a design that revels in the PS2-era visuals of gaming for it all. Do not expect to see anything groundbreaking in that department. We will just be able to platform our way through the world natively on the new systems if we already own the title or are looking for a new one to add into the mix. Pumpkin Jack is still a fun title with all of that said, you can read our review on the site, and it will just be nice to see it in its most recent final form. You can have a look below at the announcement, but do note that we did warn about the visuals before you think you are going to lose your gourd.
