Shadow of the Colossus: how to unlock Time Attack mode and all the rewards

Shadow of the Colossus isn't over once you've defeated all the great beasts.

Beating the game the first time around will allow you to begin new game+ mode. From here you can try the Time Attack modes.

To start a Time Attack kneel and pray before one of the Colossus in the Shrine of Worship.

There are two Time Attack modes you unlock, and both grant you lots of cool weapons and tools to make hunting the Colossus easier.

You'll unlock one item every time you beat two Colossi. Just head to the pool at the back of the Shrine of Worship to pick them up and equip them.
