Leisure Suit Larry HD Remakes & New Games Announced

Leisure Suit Larry HD remakes have been announced for a 2012 release on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Steam, OnLive, Windows, Mac, iOS and Android platforms announced Replay Games; who have secured the rights for the entire Leisure Suit Larry franchise!

If that’s not enough, Replay Games founder and CEO Paul Trowe has teamed up with Al Lowe, the original creator of Leisure Suit Larry series, to work on the remastered High Definition versions in order to properly re-introduce the character to a whole new generation!

The first game to be announced officially will be a remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. It will be released for literally every platform that Replay Games can get the game on, so expect to see the franchise everywhere once 2012 hits!

If Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards HD is a success sales-wise, then fans can expect Replay Games to start development on HD remakes of every Leisure Suit Larry game in the franchise, titles 2-7. However sadly, the original coding for Leisure Suite Larry 4: The Missing Floppies has literally gone missing, so that game is up in the air. Unless EGM, who broke the story, is just playing a crude joke based on the name of the title.

The Leisure Suit Larry HD Remakes will include remastered high-definition graphics in full HD, updated sound effects and music, and new controls for each modern platform, while maintaining the series trademark humor and signature puzzles.

In addition, Replay Games also plans on re-releasing the original Leisure Suit Larry games in their original versions. Although when that will happen is up in the air. It sounds like the developers are more concerned with remaking the games first, and then will concentrate on re-releasing the original titles.

Either way, this is great news for fans of the Mature-rated, Adult videogames. It’s really interesting to note that this “genre” of Mature game has never really made a splash since titles like the Leisure Suit Larry games. It’ll be interesting to see if the remakes revive this style of game for adults.

Here is a video of the original title in it’s original form. Viewer discretion is advised. Not for children.
