Two months after a console version of Crysis was spotted in a ratings database, Crytek has announced a "remastered" version of the original Crysis for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this October. Though Crysis 2 hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well, the 2007 original was only ever released on PC.
"For many years, people were asking, can you do Crysis 1 on consoles?" CEO Cervat Yerli told GameTrailers TV. "And we have been secretly working on that for a while."
The announcement trailer notes that the console edition of Crysis has been "remastered with all new lighting" as well as new effects and Nanosuit controls. Like Crysis 2, the console version will offer full stereoscopic 3D support. One speculates that it'll be built upon the Crysis 2-powering CryEngine 3, given all the work that went into optimizing that for consoles.
Crysis 2 will be available on XBLA and PSN for 1600 Microsoft Points/$19.99.
