Beyond Good and Evil Remaster appears on Korean ratings board

The MIA remaster reappears.

Last year, a leak showed that a remaster of Beyond Good and Evil is in the works for the 20th anniversary. At the time, the alleged game had been rated by the ESRB, and now the Ubisoft title has shown up on the Korean ratings board.

The Game Rating and Administration Committee (or GRAC for short) has listed the project on its website, and has given it a 12+. While the site is in Korean, the actual title is right there in plain English, referring to it as Beyond Good and Evil Remaster. The listing was added on February 16, so this is pretty fresh.

Granted, we already knew that this was happening, as Ubisoft itself confirmed it. Still, we’ve yet to see anything beyond the confirmation. The original came out in November 2003, so it’s a little late if this is going to be a special 20th year special.

Still no sequel, though

A remaster is great, of course, but what a lot of people are ideally wanting is a sequel. As I say, the game came out at the start of the new millennium. While a sequel has been in the works for some time, it’s pretty much in development hell at this stage. Who knows whether it will ever see the light of day.

In any case, we may still get a modern take on the first (and only) game. Remastering it will likely mean a tweak to the controls to make them more modern (a lot has changed these past two decades) and, of course, sleeker visuals.

We’ve been promised a Beyond Good and Evil 2 for years. At the very least, it’s nice to know we get some Beyond Good and Evil, sometime hopefully soon.
