Beyond episode 720: PS5 gameplay tests, GTA trilogy remaster hopes and Konami rumors

We discuss what we want from new Konami games, how new Castlevania’s could learn from classics like Aria of Sorrow, the potential for an MGS 3 remake, and more about how Konami could bring its classic games to PS4, PS5, and other modern consoles.

On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Brian Altano and Matt Kim to discuss all the latest in the world of PlayStation, including the PS5 game trials being tested in the UK and how we’d like to see it expand, the continuous leaks for a GTA Trilogy remaster release (which we aren’t expecting to be GTA remakes), and what we’d like to see from GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas’ collective return on PS4 and PS5, plus the rumors that Konami is looking at major revivals for Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill.
