We were told that HD remakes of Team ICO’s celebrated PS2 adventure games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus have been confirmed for the PlayStation 3, but today we deliver word on the details surrounding the project.
First, the games will be released together on a single Blu-ray disc in North America and Europe as part of the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection coming our way in Spring 2011. Such is NOT the case in Japan though, where the two titles will be released separately. No matter how you get them though, both titles will support HD resolution, run at 30fps, feature “extensive re-texturing” and include PlayStation Network Trophy support. Lastly, the version of Ico included in the collection will be the European version, which contained additional content such as a co-op mode and alternate ending.
Excited? You should be and you can check out a trailer for the Team ICO collection right here to see just why.
On a related note, a new trailer for Team ICO’s next project – The Last Guardian – has debuted at TGS and concludes with a release date of “Holiday 2011″. Looks like the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection will have to hold fans off for a bit longer than initially expected.
