Mafia II: Definitive Edition Revealed By Korean Rating Board
An updated version of the classic Mafia game might be coming to modern systems.
Mafia II released for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2010, and now, a decade later, there's some evidence that a new version of the game might be on the way. Gematsu is reporting that the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has rated something called Mafia II: Definitive Edition.
Whether this definitive edition of Mafia II is a Switch port, a PS4 and Xbox One remaster, or even a next-gen version of the game, is unknown. An official announcement will hopefully come soon and clear up any confusion.
It would not be the first time a 2K release has been revealed by a ratings board in 2020-- the Switch ports of XCOM 2 and The BioShock Collection both leaked early through ratings boards, as did Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered.
The most recent game in the Mafia franchise is 2016's Mafia III, developed by Hanger 13. That studio is currently working on a new project that will be unveiled this year--it's unclear whether or not it will be a game set in the Mafia universe.
Mafia II received an 8.5/10 in our original review, and was praised for "deliver(ing) fun shoot-outs and pockets of shocking brutality in a world you're delighted to be a part of."
