PS3 ICO/Shadow of the Colossus to have Trophy support

Famed game designer Fumito Ueda has confirmed that the upcoming PlayStation 3 HD makeovers of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus will be equipped with Trophy support.

Speaking during a chinwag with Japan’s Dengeki Online, Ueda commented, "They’ve [Ico and SOTC] become HD, the textures have been redone to go along with that, and also PS3 Trophy support."

It’ll also support 3D compatibility, though Ueda noted this feature wasn’t initially on the cards when converting the games to PS3: "Originally, we weren’t planning on making them 3D compatible, but it was decided upon suddenly when we determined compatibility would be a possibility. Neither Ico nor Shadow were made with 3D in mind originally, but they do fit well, I believe."

Elsewhere, the Team ICO boss also hinted that the hotly anticipated The Last Guardian may adopt both 3D and PlayStation Move functionality, though was quick to point out that nothing has been set in stone as of yet.

"We’re still looking into this," Ueda said. "In its current state, we’ve pretty much used up the full system specs. However, we’d like people who don’t normally play games to play, so if we can reach these people, we’ll think about it. With this meaning, it’s not the case that there is absolutely no plan for support."

"However, even if we did adopt Move, it would be Move compatible, and not exclusive."
