Herc’s Adventures, a classic PS1 game, will be coming to PS4 and PS5 in June, according to a listing on an affiliate website. The title is supposed to make an appearance in the Classics Catalogue, which provides PS Plus Premium/Deluxe subscribers to play certain classic games from PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP on their current and next-gen consoles- PS4 & PS5.
Gematsu, a Twitter leaker, has established the credibility of the leak by offering an image of the Herc’s Adventures’ box art uploaded on Sony’s server.
According to PS Deals, a popular PlayStation price-scraping website, the game is expected to launch on PS Plus Classic catalogue on June 20, 2023. This may come true, as the official date for June’s addition in PS Plus games catalogue is also June 20.

Created by LucasArts, Herc’s Adventures is a action-adventure game that was initially launched in 1997 for PlayStation. It was also later remastered for PlayStation 3. In Herc’s Adventures, players can choose a single player or co-op mode, with a witty and humorous storyline of saving Persephone from Hades.
While players are excited to get their hands on this retro-classic, there is still no guarantee if it will indeed make its way to the classics catalogue. Many PS1 and PSP games have been teased to be released for PS4 and PS5 this year and very few of them have been released on PS Plus. Games from the May 2023 classics catalogue, such as Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remaster for PS4, and PSP games like Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light, Pursuit Force, and Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow have actually made their way to the list.
Games like Dino Crisis, which was also featured on a promotional banner for PS Plus in July 2022, have yet to make an appearance in the catalogue. Some games like Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness were mentioned on the PS Store, however, never made it into the collection.
