What you need to know

  • Mafia II is a cult classic adventure game that launched on Xbox 360.
  • A Mafia II: Definitive Edition was rated for Xbox One and PC in Taiwan.
  • Mafia III: Definitive Edition was also spotted.
  • An upgraded version of Mafia II may be coming to modern hardware soon.

Updated May 13, 2020: The rumors of the Mafia: Trilogy were accurate and 2K Games just revealed a teaser for the collection. You can expect updated visuals are much more. More details are coming on May 19.

Mafia II is one of the most popular games on Xbox 360, and it looks like it's getting an upgraded version for Xbox One soon. Today, Gematsu noticed that Mafia II: Definitive Edition — and Mafia III: Definitive Edition — were rated for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 by the Taiwanese Game Rating Committee.

The outlet said the following. Windows Central was able to verify that the listings are indeed accurate. It could mean that both versions are probably on the way.

The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has rated Mafia II: Definitive Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as Mafia III: Definitive Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The news comes following a rating for Mafia II Definitive Edition for unspecified platforms by the Korea Game Rating and Administration Committee on April 4.

Many years ago, the existence of a Serious Sam Collection for upgraded consoles was revealed, but it seems like the title ended up being a Google Stadia timed exclusive. So just because a listing exists, doesn' mean it's coming to consoles soon. Hopefully, that isn't the case with Mafia II: Definitive Edition because many gamers want to replay the cult-classic experience with modern controls and visuals.

  • My fave open world story. I preferred this particular game over any GTA game ever. I'm not it bothered by the open world. For me Story is more important in this type of game. And Mafia 2 was a joy to play. I couldn't put it down. 1 and 3 were nowhrre near as good. But 2 was a masterpiece for me.
  • Agreed, Mafia 2 was a masterpiece. I actually really liked the first Mafia as well (and it's why I got Mafia 2 at launch) but the sequel was definitely a better game. I think the less said about the third game the better (not that it was terrible, but it wasn't good either). One aside though, the main story and gameplay for Mafia 2 was incredible, but what the Hell did they do to the DLC's? They turned the game into GTA with the DLC's, with frigging point score missions, double you, tee, eff.
  • Yeah I know. They completely changed it with the DLC. But yeah what a main game it was. Loved how the city felt different from winter to summer.
  • I bought Mafia II because of Mafia I, and Mafia III because of Mafia II. I was never disappointed. Gameplay and atmosphere are far better than GTA.
