PS5 Remakes Remasters PlayStation 5 1

PlayStation 5 is out right now, bringing with it a whole host of new experiences. However, as Demon's Souls demonstrates, there's always room to bring back some of the older classics for a modern audience. It even featured in an older version of this very article. Given that hunger for the return of titles from previous generations, and the sheer existence of Bluepoint Games, we have put together the remasters and remakes we want on PS5 most. They range from the fairly obvious through to a few left-field picks, with the likelihood of them actually happening very much up for debate.

Bloodborne PS5 PlayStation 5


Everyone and their great-grandmother was begging Sony for a PS4 Pro patch for Bloodborne, and to much disappointment, it never arrived. The From Software joint had some minor technical issues such as frame rate drops in certain areas and frame pacing problems throughout the entire game, but they were never enough to take away from what is one of the PS4's very best games. PS5 backwards compatibility hasn't fixed these issues either.

If a next-gen remaster were to come about, though, doubling that frame rate to 60 and pushing the graphics into the 4K era shouldn't be much of a problem for the new hardware. The world of Yharnam could shine that little bit brighter on PS5.

Will it happen? It's possible.


Dead Space Trilogy

One of the greatest survival horror franchises outside of Resident Evil and Silent Hill doesn't deserve to die on PlayStation 3. The first two entries are among the genre's very best, but the third instalment has to be included purely for academic purposes. Here's how you don't make a Dead Space game, essentially. However, this is EA we're talking about. While the firm has been more open to remasters in recent years, it doesn't seem to have any plans for Dead Space whatsoever. This remastered collection will continue to be a pipe dream.

Will it happen? Highly unlikely.

So we got a full remake of Shadow of the Colossus, but what happened to its predecessor? Yes, ICO was remastered on PS3, although we think it's time to bring back Famito Ueda's original masterpiece on PS5. This unique title could do with a fresh breath of life for a new audience on the new console — it deserves it at the very least. Get Bluepoint Games on the job and it's a guaranteed hit. Although, you could probably say that about every game on this particular list.

Will it happen? Probably not.


The Last of Us: Part II

The Last of Us: Part II is a modern masterpiece that could look and run even better on PS5. It's Naughty Dog so those wizards could probably put together something pretty special. Plus, with the confirmation that a multiplayer mode is on its way, we can envision some sort of PS5 remaster alongside the online offering that spruces up the campaign. Don't expect a free upgrade for this one because the California-based team could be going all out for this one. Think of Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered and you're along the right lines.

Will it happen? We're already looking to place a pre-order.


Metal Gear Solid

We're really getting into dream territory here, but just imagine a complete remake of the original Metal Gear Solid on the PS5. That would be something special. We're not entirely sure what shape this would take - whether it would retain the top-down view or switch the camera angle up - but we'll take anything we can get at this point.

Konami doesn't seem too interested in video games outside of Pro Evolution Soccer at the moment, however, so the chances of this actually happening are relatively slim. Maybe if the company suddenly needs a quick injection of cash it'll fall back on one of its greatest franchises to date.

Will it happen? Probably not.



Here's one for the petrol heads. Gran Turismo 7 is one of very few racing games confirmed for PS5 so let's bolster that line-up with the off-road madness of Motorstorm. There isn't a series quite like it on the market right now and it could even be tweaked to offer a Battle Royale mode in the style of Twisted Metal. There's a lot more potential here than what initially meets the eye. Make it happen, Sony.

Will it happen? Probably not.


Red Dead Redemption

The only way to play the original Red Dead Redemption now on PS5 is through PlayStation Now, and nobody really wants to stream such an epic game over the internet. So, after remastering Grand Theft Auto V for a second time, let's get the PS3 classic on Sony's modern console. Use the Red Dead Redemption 2 engine as your basis, ditch the light survival mechanics, and jobs a good un.

After the events of Red Dead Redemption 2 set up the story of John Marston, let's see his inaugural tale all over again on the PS5. It probably means that a potential Grand Theft Auto sequel would be put on ice for a little bit longer, but we can live with that. The quicker Rockstar puts something out next generation the better.

Will it happen? There's little chance.

Resident Evil 4

It's Resident Evil 4, so of course, it'll end up ported to the PS5 at some point. However, what if Capcom could do one better than that? After completely remaking the franchise's second and third entries, it's surely only a matter of time before its sequels get a new coat of paint. Better yet, there are strong rumours this will actually happen.

Bringing back one of the greatest games of all time with a full remake would be a great addition to the PS5's library, and it shouldn't take quite as much work to get into shape either, considering the camera angle of the later games is already in place.

Will it happen? It's a case of when, not if.
