Modern Warfare 2 Remaster Unlocked
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered this week
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remaster is out this week, and should appear on the PlayStation Store with the next update according to VGC.
The game was unceremoniously revealed by a Korean ratings board in late February, and recent datamining of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update exposed some artwork. The German PlayStation Store already lists Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.
Story only: The original game launched in 2009, and followed the increasingly ridiculous exploits of fan-favorite Captain Price. The remaster focuses on the single-player content since Modern Warfare already has ample multiplayer modes, including the free-to-play Warzone.
Bundle deal: Dataminers also revealed that anyone purchasing the Ghost Bundle from the Modern Warfare client will get the Modern Warfare 2 remaster as well. Activision CFO Dennis Durkin has announced that there will be “several remastered and reimagined” releases this year.

Both Mario and Sonic were going to appear in a Crash game – sort of…
Crash Twinsanity for PlayStation 2 and Xbox was supposed to feature Moronic the Plumber, a strange mix of Mario and Sonic on a quest to recover stolen treasure.
Perhaps fortunately, Traveller’s Tales Oxford Studio decided to scrap the idea and opted for a Spyro the Dragon cameo instead. Fake Crash was also supposed to appear, but technical issues got in the way.
Perhaps most tragically, a whole level with a musical number named Take a Walk Through My Brains, performed by Dr. Cortex, ended up on the cutting room floor. Perhaps he’ll eventually appear on Eurovision?
Nintendo's Anniversary Celebration
Nintendo could be remastering lots of Mario games for his 35th anniversary
Super Mario Bros’ 35th anniversary is coming up, and there are rumours that Nintendo will be remastering most of the Super Mario series for Switch.
Nintendo has not announced anything yet, of course, but if the rumours are true we can expect Nintendo to remaster and rerelease highlights going all the way back to 1985. The plans will supposedly be announced alongside a partnership with Universal, who Nintendo is working with on a Mario theme park.
E3 reveal: Mario’s 35th anniversary was intended to be announced at E3 in June, but since the show has been canceled the announcement is likely to be streamed instead. Nintendo has, of course, neither confirmed nor denied anything, simply stating that the company “does not comment on rumour and speculation”. We could see Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy all getting remastered, if reports are true.
Partnerships: Nintendo is also teaming up with LEGO to create a special set that will launch later this year. An animated Mario movie is apparently also in the works – oh, and more Paper Mario, too, if you can believe it.
