Gex Is Coming to Modern Consoles


Gex Trilogy – a collection of Gex, Gex: Enter the Gecko, and Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko – is officially coming to modern consoles, Limited Run Games announced during a livestream today.

The snarky lil gecko will be hitting the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The stream didn’t announce a release date or show off any gameplay, but it did note that it’s being remastered with the Carbon Engine.

Gex was first released all the way back in 1995 for the EDO and later ported onto the original PlayStation, the Sega Saturn, and PC. It spawned sequels in 1998 and 1999, but publisher Square Enix hasn’t released any new entries since.

Fans have long hoped for a return, though. The games were heavily inspired by American television, and the wise-cracking character nabbed some solid names for voicework. Comedian Dana Gould voiced Gex in the North American edition, actors Leslie Phillips and Danny John-Jules were in the UK edition, and Mitsuo Senda voiced him for the Japanese release of the second game.

IGN gave Gex a 6/10, and praised Gould’s voicework in particular, writing “usually, wise-cracking voice overs suck, but here it really does work.”

Limited Run Games announced a slew of other reveals during today’s livestream as well, including a remaster of the original Clock Tower.
