Following rumours about a potential remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy, a game called Mass Effect Legendary Edition has been spotted on a South Korea rating board.
The unannounced game was reportedly rating for release in September by The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea, as spotted by Gematsu. Mass Effect Legendary Edition has been rumoured for months and is said to include remastered editions of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
Traditionally, titled that are rated by the various gaming board will be released within one to three months. A recent example was the upcoming Demon’s Souls PS5 remake which was originally spotted on the same South Korean rating board back in August, prior to its official announcement. The game was later officially unveiled the next month.
The rumours began circulating for Mass Effect Legendary Edition when VentureBeat reported of its existence and suggested the game would be releasing around October. However, the publication later stated that the game had been pushed back to 2021.
According to VentureBeat, the reason behind the delay was because the remaster of the original Mass Effect did “not live up to the quality of the rest of the package.” The problems reportedly revolve around the game’s visuals and gameplay. It’s now expected that the title will release in early 2021.
In related EA news, the company will also be introducing EA Play into Xbox Game Pass next month, as Ultimate members will be eligible to both services in one single package.
