Classic Syphon Filter titles rerated by Korea Ratings Board

The Ultimate Spoiler: The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea is at it again, although this time around is choosing to go a little old-school with its update. Freshly listed on the committee’s ratings website are new listings for a tetrology of titles pulled from 989 Studios’ stealth-action series, Syphon Filter.

The new listings include ratings in Korea for Syphon Filter (1999), Syphon Filter 2 (2000), Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror (2006), and finally Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow (2007). All four games are rated for PS4 and PS5, which would suggest that they are being prepped for re-release on the revamped PlayStation Plus service. The service, as noted by Sony last month, will feature a wide variety of titles pulled from PlayStation history. Conspicuous by their absence are Syphon Filter 3 (2001) and PS2 release Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain (2004).

Of course, if every PlayStation, PS2, and PSP title is getting set to be re-rated for PlayStation Plus inclusion, then it would seem that Game Ratings Committees have a helluva lot of work queued up. While we’re unlikely to report on every title that waits in line for re-release, it’s worth noting that the Syphon Filter series was pretty darn cool, and sets a precedent for some of the quality franchises that will be making a grand comeback on the new service.

The revamped PlayStation Plus is expected to launch in June. Check out the details right here.
