Shadow of the Colossus PS4 intro

Shadow of the Colossus is a complete remake of the classic action-adventure title originally developed by Team ICO. The game is scheduled for release exclusively on PS4 in February 2018.

Bluepoint Games has had extensive experience in remastering titles for PlayStation consoles. These include Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PS3.

The Shadow of the Colossus remake will feature a number of changes as recommended by Fumito Ueda, the creator of the original game. The project will also feature a new control scheme though it will maintain the gameplay of its 2005 predecessor.

Shadow of the Colossus remains one of the PS2's critical darlings, and is often regarded as an example of video games as art. While not a huge commercial success, the title was praise for its emotional storytelling, epic boss fights, and evocative soundtrack.

This isn’t the first time the game has been given a modern overhaul. Both Shadow of the Colossus and ICO were given a high-definition makeover for PS3 back in 2012.

    Not really excited for this given that it was already remastered for PS3, which I played a couple of times, and there are more important/interesting things on my list to play. I’d have rather a complete reboot of the game as opposed to a remake, but if there are new things added I may end up getting this eventually. It’s just not a priority to me.
