Team Ico HD collection fronts beautiful launch trailer

Tuesday, 27th September 2011 06:43 GMT By Brenna Hillier

This week, we finally get to see two of the PS2′s best games in glorious HD makeover mode. Get a preview of the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection through the break.

Depending on your territory, the Collection is available either right now or by the end of the week. A well as an HD brush up, the collection adds in a number of PlayStation 3 features like stereoscopic 3D, and restores features cut from the US release of the game.

Ico, the debut title from the eponymous studio and a relatively early PS2 title, is an adventure platformer with puzzle mechanics, in which the player escorts a mysterious AI companion out of a castle fraught with peril.

Shadow of the Colossus, said to be a “spiritual prequel” to Ico, has the player explore a long-ruined kingdom in search of towering colossi, solving the puzzle of how to take down the massive beasts.

Both titles sport a minimalist approach to narrative and high atmosphere; they’ve each attracted critical acclaim and fervent fanbases.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.

    How on *earth* did IGN only give this 8.5

    and why on earth is this score boasted about in the above trailer ?

    They really should have included Last Guardian playable demo on here. Huge missed opportunity.

    (At worst, give us a download code for future exclusive demo)

    Couldn’t agree more. A missed opportunity if there ever was one =/

    Also, would just like to say that seeing this in the flesh running at the Eurogamer Expo, blew my fucking mind.

    All the videos and media released thus far do this remaster so little justice it’s crazy.
