PlayStation Is Reportedly Working on a Remake of a “Big Game”
PlayStation might be announcing a remake of one of their “big” games this Christmas. Folk singer Eabha McMahon has just revealed that she was called to record an Irish language theme for a big game. As of writing, it remains unknown precisely what this game is going to be.
“I just recently wrote a song for a PlayStation game with Michael McGlynn,” McMahon confirmed. “We are writing music for a remake of a PlayStation game.” McGlynn has been involved in a variety of PlayStation remakes and was recently revealed to be working with Yasunori Mitsuda, who is a composer who had worked for the studio for the Xeno, Shadow Hearts, and Chrono franchises.
“He does that a lot,” added McMahon. “He has done a lot of writing for different games that are very well-known, but I am actually not a gamer myself.”
“It is actually going to be announced at Christmas, the name of the game,” McMahon continued. “I have heard of it now and I have confirmed it is a big game, which is great!”
At the moment, PlayStation seems to have no events planned for Christmas. The only currently known event where a big announcement could potentially be made would be Game Awards 2021, which will be an in-person event scheduled for December 9th.
PlayStation users are still in the dark about what this “big game” remake could be, but they do have clues to work on. Mitsuda’s collaboration with McGlynn has sparked speculations that the big game in question could be Xenogears, which Square Enix had originally released for PlayStation consoles in 1998. Just this August, Mitsuda shared a photo of his daughter and McGlynn seemingly preparing to perform and make music together remotely.
McGlynn’s previous work with the team behind Xenoblade might have resulted in further work with the Japanese developer, which ties to earlier reports that multiple Silent Hill games are currently being developed from a “prominent” studio. With that said, fans think that a Gaelic song is a fitting choice for a remake of that setting.
