Mass Effect fans have been hoping for remasters of the series’ first three games for what feels like an eternity. Nearly eight years after the release of the original Mass Effect Trilogy, it doesn’t seem right that the already classic RPGs haven’t received the remaster treatment.
Rumors of a remastered trilogy have swirled for some time, gaining more and more traction over the past several months. EA is reportedly set to announce the trilogy this month (October) with a release later this month, according to Jeff Grub of GamesBeat. Grubb has also said that the rumored trilogy would, in fact, be called the Legendary Edition.
Now, it seems the October timeframe could be possible. According to Gematsu, a remastered Mass Effect trilogy, called Mass Effect Legendary Edition, has been rated in Korea.
As we know, the XCOM 2 Collection and Catherine Full Body were rated in Korea just ahead of their respective releases, and the PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls was also rated in Korea about a month before its official release date reveal. With that in mind, we could be on the cusp of an official confirmation, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Right now, it’s unclear what game or games are actually in the Legendary Edition. It could simply be a remaster of Mass Effect, but all signs and credible rumors squarely point to it being the entire trilogy, including Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3.
There is currently no firm release date for the Legendary Edition. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news as we learn, which will hopefully be very soon.
