Team Ico HD remakes due in Japan September 22, new trailer

Friday, 3rd June 2011 08:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony has put a Japanese date and price on the much anticipated HD remakes of PS2 classics ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, as well as releasing a new trailer detailing the releases.

According to auto-translate of Dengeki, Japan will see the both games on September 22, for ¥3,890.

Contrary to earlier expectations, the games will not be bundled onto one BluRay disc as a collection, but will be sold separately – although at present, this seems restricted to Japan.

The revamped versions of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus will feature HD graphics, 7.1 surround sound, trophies, and support for stereoscopic 3D.

The two games will also be sold in Japan as a limited edition bundle containing a code to download themes for the PlayStation 3, along with a 100 page book, for ¥6,980.

Dengeki has a couple of screens of the games and themes, the cover art, and a photo of the bundle. Check them out through the link above, although if history is any indication, we can expect Western cover art to vary in some territories from that shown.

Since localisation work is already done, you can probably bet on a Western release in the same vicinity – expect an announcement at E3 if not earlier.

The official Japanese websites for both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus have been updated.

Thanks, Miladesn. Check out the movie below.

    There are actually too many games for me this year if none of them get delayed. A first! :D
    This, Demon’s Souls, Uncharted 3 and Elder Scrolls all seem come out at around the same time.

    At least Konami made them multiplatform as an excuse for not bundling MGS1-2 and Peace Walker together,what’s theirs?

    Odd that they’re not on the same disc. Probably a style choice, those Collection boxes do suck.

    If they’re £15/£20 each, I’m not bothered about them not being bundled.

    For anyone wonder about why it’s sold separately, it was always announced that for Japan it would be sold separately. However for Palzone and NA we’re getting it as a bundle which means most likely the garish box art that most HD collections have.
    This is just what’s coming out for Japan :)
