ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are easily some of the best titles in PlayStation 2’s library and with the third entry in the series on the horizon it looks like it will be time for ICO and Shadow of the Colossus fans to play through these titles again to hold them over til The Last Guardian’s release.
Game designer for team ICO Fumito Ueda was asked in a interview with 1UP about a Shadow of the Colossus and ICO remastering similar to that of the God of War Collection. He responded “Initially, I didn’t want to consider that, I always thought they were designed for PS2 and should stay there. But lately, I’ve been thinking it would be nice to provide the games to other platforms to reach more users.”
While the original two games are visually impressive for PlayStation 2, a little PS3 make over could definitely do them some good. The Last Guardian is currently set for 2010 and is exclusively for PlayStation 3.
