Are you looking to go on a nostalgia trip by finding a Tak And The Power Of Juju PS4 game? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Tak And The Power Of Juju released back in 2004 in the EU for the PlayStation 2, GameCube, and the Game Boy Advance. The game was successful, spawning three direct sequels and two television shows, but is there a way of playing Tak And The Power Of Juju on PS4 and other current consoles?
Tak And The Power Of Juju Series: A Look Back
Tak And The Power Of Juju is part of a series of puzzle and platforming games that launched on the PlayStation 2 and other consoles starting with the lead title of the same name. Following the original game were sequels Tak 2: Staff Of Dreams and Tak: The Great Juju Challenge.
The original video game follows Tak after evil Pupanunu shaman Tlaloc turns all Pupanunu people into sheep as foretold in an ancient prophecy. Tak and master shaman Jibolba both manage to survive the spell, and the high shaman sends Tak to restore the Moon Juju, the protector of the Pupanunu people, defeat Tlaloc, and revert the Pupanunu people back into humans.
Tak 2: Staff Of Dreams
Tak 2: Staff Of Dreams released in 2005 and takes place directly after the events of the first game. In the title, Tak is stuck in the Dream World and tasked by the Dream Juju to defeat the Dream Guardian, recover the Staff Of Dreams, and save a princess. Along the way, Tak is forced to explore the mysterious Dreamworld and once again fight his mortal enemy Tlaloc.
Tak: The Great Juju Challenge
Tak: The Great Juju Challenge is the third game in the Tak series. The game released between late 2005 and early 2006 and follows Tak and friend Lok as they’re forced to participate in the Great Juju Challenge with Pupanunu Village being the host for the first time in 60 years. Tak and Lok must use their abilities to complete the Great Juju Challenge against other competitors and win the favour of the Moon Juju.
Tak And The Guardians Of Gross
The fourth Tak game is Tak And The Guardians Of Gross which released back in 2008 for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii. The game follows Tak who must defeat the Guardians Of Gross after accidentally freeing them by destroying an important gem. Unlike previous games, Tak And The Guardians Of Gross was developed by a different studio and was linear in scope with a strong focus on parkour.
Tak: Mojo Mistake
Tak: Mojo Mitake is the fifth game in the Tak series. The game released on the Nintendo DS in 2008 at the same time as Tak And The Guardians Of Gross, and it follows Tak after he summons helper creatures known as Hackies that quickly invade the Juju Realm and Pupanunu Village and must work to get rid of them.
Tak: Moonstone Madness
Tak: Moonstone Madness was a 2D side-scrolling game available on the Nickelodeon website. The game required players to ride a boar as Tak and collect as many Moonstones as possible in order to progress through different levels. The game is no longer available to play.
Tak And The Power Of Juju TV Show
In addition to the five main games and the additional online spin-off, there was a Tak And The Power Of Juju TV show which aired on Nickelodeon between August 2007 and November 2008 before it was cancelled.
The Tak show included most characters from the video games, but many of them underwent design, personality or name changes, including Tlaloc who appeared for one episode as Traloc.
Can You Play Tak And The Power Of Juju On PS4 And Other Platforms?
Unfortunately, there is no way to play Tak And The Power Of Juju on PS4, PS5 or any other current consoles. Tak And The Power Of Juju and its sequels cannot be bought from the PlayStation Store and cannot be played over PlayStation’s PSNow streaming service.
What’s more, there are no Tak And The Power Of Juju Nintendo Switch games since they only released on the GameCube and Wii, and although Tak 2 and Tak: The Great Juju Challenge released on the original Xbox, they are not currently available via backwards compatibility.
Right now, the only way of playing the Tak And The Power Of Juju games is by purchasing a copy of them for their corresponding console systems and playing that way. Alternatively, you can try emulating the games on Mac and PC, but only if you own copies of the games.
Will There Be A Tak And The Power Of Juju Remake Or Remaster?
Back in 2018, THQ Nordic, following the original THQ’s liquidation in 2013 and its acquisition by Nordic Games in 2014, announced a partnership with Nickelodeon to revive several of their past games. Included in the company’s list was Tak And The Power Of Juju, suggesting that the original game may make a comeback on modern-day consoles.
However, it’s been two years since THQ Nordic’s announcement and the studio haven’t yet revealed anything about a potential Tak And The Power Of Juju remake or remaster, suggesting that right now there are no plans for a remake or remaster of the games.
