Earlier today, 2K Games dropped a teaser for the Mafia Trilogy, showcasing “gussied up” clips from Mafia 2 and 3. The full reveal won’t happen for another week, on May 19, so while it’s obviously a remaster, we’ll have to wait for the official word on what exactly it’s all about. One thing about it we noticed, though, is the conspicuous absence of the first game, which we took as possibly a sign that it will be bundled in but not updated.

That is apparently not going to be the case, as shortly after the Mafia Trilogy news went out, Mafia: Definitive Edition appeared on the Microsoft Store (it’s now been taken down). And it is very definitely remastered: The screens included with the listing look absolutely fantastic. The graphics of the original Mafia were very-well regarded—we said in our glowing 2002 review that “it’s rare in this day and age to be truly impressed by a game’s graphics, but a lot of your early game time will be spent just marveling at the scenery”—but after 20 years, that glory has faded. The Definitive Edition looks set to bring all that sweet eye candy back: These screens are gorgeous.
