Family. Power. Respect. Today we learned why the official Mafia Twitter account tweeted out those three words over the past couple of days, as 2K released a teaser trailer for Mafia: Trilogy. Update: A listing on the Xbox Marketplace for Mafia: Definitive Edition has appeared, complete with screenshots and an August 28 release date.

With a grand reveal planned for May 19, there’s not a lot of information in the teaser trailer for Mafia: Trilogy. We’ve got logos for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and the Epic Games Store, so we know what platforms the collection is coming to. As far as how much of a remaster the games are getting, we’ll have to wait until next Tuesday to find out.

Update 5/13 12:10 PM: A listing for Mafia: Definitive Edition has appeared on the Xbox Marketplace. Here’s the official description, which mentions Mafia II and Mafia III definitive editions as well.

Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that the rewards are too big to ignore.

    I'm actually pretty excited for this, Mafia 1 is a bit of a bitch to setup on modern PC's (and current purchaseable copies are missing music), and I'll take any improvements to Mafia 2.

    Mafia 3 wasn't as bad as people made it out to be, but neither was it that good.... meh.

      And also Mafia 1 looks nowhere near as good as I remembered it looking when I was in high school.

      Someone must have snuck in to my house and swapped my discs for a downgraded copy.

    Loved the original Mafia; wasn't as fussed about Mafia II; and didn't enjoy Mafia III.

    It will be good to get back into the first one with an updated engine. Hopefully they'll improve driving a bit as well :P

    The remake of the original Mafia alone makes this a must buy for me.
