While the Enhanced Editions would find their way to mobile devices as well as PCs, they never landed on consoles - something publisher Skybound Games is looking to change this year with an agreement to publish the games on as-yet unspecified console platforms.

Several classic RPGs are headed to the next-gen consoles this year. Skybound Games was selected as the team to finish The Walking Dead after Telltale Games shuttered their doors.

The six games in question include the entirety of the Baldur's Gate franchise, including the recently released Siege of Dragonspear by Beamdog, along with the critically acclaimed Planescape Torment, Neverwinter Nights, and Icewind Dale. Neverwinter Nights will also make the jump.

Beamdog previously spruced up Baldur's Gate for the PC back in 2012, where it was known as Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.
