There's a growing hope that the long, long, long rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster — also known as Mass Effect Legendary Edition — may finally be announced this weekend. At this point, we all know that the remaster is happening — it's been outed by multiple trusted sources on multiple occasions — but the wait for its official reveal has been tedious to say the least. 'Mass Effect Legendary Edition' even got an age rating in Korea recently.
Supposedly, the remaster was due to launch by the end of this year, but it was pushed back into 2021 so that the developer could hit a certain level of quality — particularly with the first Mass Effect, which is really showing its age.
Anyway, it's N7 Day this weekend — that's the 7th November to those who aren't familiar. BioWare hasn't teased any big announcements for the big day, but there is a certain event that's caught the attention of series fans. Mark Meer, the voice of male Commander Shepard, will be joined by a bunch of other Mass Effect voice actors for some kind of livestream on Saturday. Patrick and Karin Weekes — two BioWare veterans still working at the studio — will also be present.
Naturally, this has got people talking. N7 Day would obviously be the time to announce the Trilogy remaster, but as always, we'll have to wait and see.

I'm going full Femshep this time around.
Someone insert that Hawkeye gif
It's the best time to announce it but we've been here before
Let me guess, the Switch version will be releasing 1 week after the Ps4 and Xbox versions even though the Switch is powerful enough to run those games no problem?
@HotGoomba___Rebrand 1 week would be much nicer than 10 months...
This is reminding me of Fallout 4. Worst kept secret ever, but people will flip out whenever its officially announced.
If it's on Switch i'll gladly have it. I don't play my PS4 enough to invest my time in this
I really do hope this is true this time - and it would be even better if they said the reason it was pushed back from the rumoured launch this year to next is so that it can be further optimised for next gen (unlikely but I can hope) - whatever the case I'll be getting it on all available consoles when it launches!
I revisted 3 earlier this year, only to find it was rather clunky in the controls department. I think I've been spoilt by more modern gaming standards, so I hope the remasters address this area.
Fans get excited about every little thing. I'd really find it amusing if they announce Andromeda 2 instead with the worst graphics imaginable and a demo full of glitches that fries a PS5 live (looking at you ANTHEM)
Once you go Femshep there's no going back.
Missed a great opportunity here, Push Square - you really should’ve just recycled the earlier article(s) about the subject, with an update «it may be happening this time!» at the top every year.
Do nor forget jade Empire thats some of their best work
I dont know if I could do it all again. It was such a special experience so doing it a 2nd time might lose the magic of that first time.
I'm hoping it's ready and it's a surprise drop.
YES! Just bring it I'm sure this will be out on ps5 to no point it it being out only on current consoles, with Xbox it's fine it'll work guaranteed , Sony will be slow but they will get backwards compatibility locked in. Least I hope lol
@Boldfoxrd Exactly! Especially ME1 for me...played it in 2008 after not playing any video games for over 3 years and it absolutely blew my face off. Perfect 10/10, my default favorite game of all time, even to this day. I'll probably buy this collection just to have it, but not actually play it, lol.
@HotGoomba___Rebrand lol, knowing EA they'll straight up skip the Switch.
So are we putting faith in EA for this to be anything more than a basic reskin for current gen then
Would be amazing, for sure.
I hope it's not rushed, let BioWare take their time. The Mass Effect universe is fantastic, would hate to see newcomers thrown off due to a rushed/unfinished product.
We have been anticipating this happening for how many years now? Just saying....
@clvr at least they're not having trouble porting two PS2 games that's been ported to other platforms for years.
Looks at Square Enix
@HotGoomba___Rebrand I want it for the Switch too, and I'd double dip day 1 as I'd also buy the PS4 version. Probably the only game I'd ever do that for.
But a Switch version is doubtful because its EA.
And here i am still waiting for square enix to announce a ff13 trilogy remaster... but they working on ff16 and ff7-2 remake so i can wait...
For mass effect i hope they exclude andromeda..
@BansheeNorn I'd rather have a collection of the first 6 in their gba and ds versions.
@sikthvash I enjoyed the game as well as it's MP horde mode but I agree it's controls where laggy at times, I think it was pushing the PS3 a bit but still a good game even if the ending was rather WTF Huh ?????
@Nakatomi_Uk The MP was ace - sunk soooo many hours into it! If they can tidy things up, then I'll be sinking many more hours into it. It's still a great looking game for its age, so I'm not too fussed by a massive graphical overhaul (OK, maybe the first one has aged a fair bit).
