Beyond Good & Evil HD Coming to XBLA and PSN

Ubisoft’s gone remake mad, but you’d have to find a stone cold bastard to scoff at this decision. 2003′s Beyond Good & Evil will get the HD revamp treatment, bumping the game’s resolution to 1080p, updating the game’s character models, reworking the game’s textures, and re-mastering the game’s awesome, awesome soundtrack (are you listening to that YouTube video yet?). The game will appear on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network with respective support for achievements and trophies.
Beyond Good & Evil released during Ubisoft’s “we’re going to make awesome games that nobody will buy” season along with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Because of its poor financial performance, the game did not launch the series everyone hoped for. Just recently, Ubisoft confirmed the existence and development of a Beyond Good & Evil 2, so Beyond Good & Evil HD may be a a move to raise brand awareness for the sequel. No release date is available for the game yet, but expect it in 2011.
