Jurassic June” might be in the rear-view, but as we Jurassic Park fans know, objects in the rear-view are closer than they appear…

To continue with the 30th-anniversary celebrations for Steven Spielberg’s thrilling masterpiece, Jurassic Park (1993), fans will soon be able to sink their teeth into two retro Jurassic Park games that are being excavated as part of a brand-new collection.

Jurassic Park: Classic Games Collection (2023) will be a two-pack bundle comprised of two Jurassic classics, one 8-bit and one 16-bit. Per Game Rant, Limited Run Games has announced that Jurassic Park (NES, Game Boy, and SNES) and Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues (Game Boy and SNES) are being, ahem, “cloned” for modern gaming platforms.

Check out the brand-new trailer for the upcoming Jurassic Park installments below:

The Prehistoric Edition, however, costs a whopping $174.99 and comes with a bundle of awesome extras for your Jurassic Park collection.

As for modern Jurassic Park titles, it’s rumored that a “Triple-A” Jurassic Park game is in development. Whether or not this holds any truth remains to be seen, but it could be the open-world Jurassic Park game fans have been dreaming of for decades.

Previously, an impressive fan-made Jurassic Park game was nearing the end of development when, sadly, Universal Pictures pulled the plug on the project.

Meanwhile, the future of Jurassic Park in film remains unknown. While last year’s Jurassic World Dominion (2022) devoured over $1 billion worldwide, there has been no word on a follow-up, although a reboot may be in the works.
