Sony will release a remake of SCE Japan Studio’s action-adventure game Shadow of the Colossus in 2018. The news was announced on-stage today at Sony’s E3 press conference with a brief trailer.
Shadow of the Colossus originally launched for PlayStation 2 in 2005 as a spiritual successor to Ico. It was directed by Fumito Ueda, the developer behind The Last Guardian. Shadow of the Colossus is an epic, yet minimalist game that has no dungeons, characters to engage with, or real dialogue. Instead, it plays out through a series of grand battles against giant beasts known as colossi. It’s part adventure, part puzzle as players hunt down colossi and figure out how to best slay these monumental beasts.
