Even though it’s a holiday week in the United States, there’s still lots to unpack in the video game world. Today, NEO: The World Ends with You was announced, Nuketown ’84 will come to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War tomorrow, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered has been updated to support save transfers from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, Tomb Raider Reloaded was announced, and more. Here’s the video game news you might’ve missed on Nov. 23, 2020.
Nuketown ’84 Launches Tomorrow in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Today, the official Call of Duty Twitter account revealed that Nuketown ’84, a reimagined version of the beloved original map, will be added to Black Ops Cold War for free tomorrow. The map layout will mostly remain the same as you remember, but it will be worn down from 30 years of destruction and filth. This, of course, isn’t the first reimagining of the Nuketown map, but it will serve as the latest edition specifically for Black Ops Cold War when it goes live tomorrow, Nov. 24.
Nuketown '84 drops tomorrow in #BlackOpsColdWar.

Tomb Raider Reloaded, a New Mobile Game, Announced
Earlier, we received confirmation of a new Tomb Raider game, though it’s likely not what you were expecting. As announced via the official Tomb Raider Twitter account, Tomb Raider Reloaded will come to mobile devices in 2021. While it’s unclear what type of game this will be, it looks to be something much more lighthearted than the gritty trilogy created by Crystal Dynamics. Check out the announcement trailer below!

The Last of Us Part II Might Be Getting a PS5 Upgrade
Several PlayStation 4 games have received or will receive next-gen upgrades, and it appears one more might be added to the mix. As revealed via a Best Buy store listing (spotted by DualShockers), a mention of “a next-gen upgrade” can be found on The Last of Us Part II‘s purchase page. Of course, this could simply be an error, but given the history of many Sony first-party titles, it seems likely this could be accurate.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales Was the U.K.’s Bestselling Retail PS5 Launch Game Last Week
The U.K. video game sales charts have been revealed, indicating that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the bestselling PS5 launch title at retail for the week ending Nov. 22, 2020. PlayStation 5 just launched in the U.K. on Nov. 19, but physical games had been available to buy for at least a week prior. Keep in mind that these stats only pertain to physical units sold and do not account for digital. Considering the massive shift away from physical media in recent years, it’s likely digital sales of Miles Morales were substantial.
You Can Now Transfer Your Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 Saves to PS5
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PlayStation 5 has just gotten an update, allowing you to transfer your save from the PlayStation 4 version to your next-gen machine. To do so, you’ll need to have the PS4 game and upload the save from the main menu. You can do this via a PS5, so no need to hook up your PS4 you likely just dusted off. Then download the save from the main menu of the PS5 version to pick up right where you left off on PS4. One thing to note is that all trophies you earned on PS4 will re-unlock for the PS5 version automatically.
Overnight we released an update for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 bringing those suits, and the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.
We also updated Remastered to allow import of those exported saves and with many additional fixes (incl. rest mode crash) https://t.co/LVnYVykc0Q
