Gamespot has been quietly releasing a new video series called Audio Logs, which brings the developers behind our favourite games to the forefront to explain the mechanics and features behind them. The latest episode takes a deep dive into 2018's Shadow of the Colossus as Bluepoint Games explains how it remade the Famito Ueda masterpiece...
They call me the wanderer
The odds are that if you have a conversation about the merits of video games as an art form, someone is going to bring up Shadow of the Colossus. Team ICO’s 2005 masterpiece is no stranger to re-releases, having been ported to the PlayStation 3 in an impressive package in 2011, but this time things were different. Rather...
A full walkthrough of all Shadow of the Colossus' foes
Shadow of the Colossus’ bosses are the beating heart of the game, and in this boss guide we’re not only going to help you to find all 16 Colossi, but we’re also going to share some strategies on how you can kill them, too. Whether you’re looking for tips, tricks, or tactics, read on for...
It’s fitting that one of the greatest games of all time should be graced with one of the best remakes of all time. For some years now the Texas-based Bluepoint has set standards with various high-profile remasters like Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, but Shadow of the Colossus sees the...
Plus, an interview with the composer
Team ICO's Shadow of the Colossus has one of PlayStation's greatest soundtracks. The music is as much a part of the experience as anything else; the soaring, heroic music that plays as you grip a colossus' fur for dear life just makes the game that much more memorable. It was only a matter of time before...
On par with PS4's best
That Shadow of the Colossus, a game that originally released in 2005, can be mistaken for a current-gen game is testament to the outstanding work that Bluepoint’s done on this PlayStation 4 remake. This is a complete rebuild of Fumito Ueda’s seminal boss rush release, and while it maintains the ethereal feel of the...
And it looks fantastic
Shadow of the Colossus looks bloody gorgeous on PlayStation 4, remade from the ground up. The system's share button was made for games like this, but as titles like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Assassin's Creed Origins have shown us, it's even better when you're able to completely pause the...
Exactly what you'd expect
Shadow of the Colossus is one of the few games we wished we could play for the first time again. We’re a little bit jealous, then, of anyone who’s going to go into the upcoming PlayStation 4 remake having never sampled Fumito Ueda’s opus before. That includes the son of Bluepoint’s art director, who is the subject...
Wander of the world
Remember earlier in the year when we previewed Shadow of the Colossus’ upcoming PlayStation 4 remake and noted that it looks just as good as any current-gen release? Well here’s the proof. Sony’s gone live with a new PlayStation Underground video showing off the title in all of its spangly new glory, and we’re sur
If you prefer
The port masters over at Bluepoint Games have revealed that Shadow of the Colossus will feature two different modes on PlayStation 4 Pro: Performance mode and Cinematic mode. Cinematic mode, as you can probably imagine, bumps the game's resolution up -- supporting 4K -- while keeping the frame rate capped at 30 frames per second...
Return to the forgotten lands
Bluepoint is remaking Shadow of the Colossus from scratch, and in this video a trio of the studio’s top dogs commentate on the intro to explain the kind of work that’s been done. In the clip, the developers touch upon the addition of new physics, the improvements to the lighting, and the overall enhancement of...
Resplendent remake breathes new life into hall of famer
Between the likes of the God of War Collection and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, developer Bluepoint’s rightly earned the reputation of being the masters of remasters. But with Shadow of the Colossus’ impending PlayStation 4 remake it’s taking its work to an extraordinary new...
Shadow of the Colossus comfortably sits in the Push Square Towers Hall of Fame – it’s, without a doubt, one of the greatest games ever made. So the fact that it’s being remade for the PlayStation 4 by conversion kings Bluepoint is exciting. However, the office is divided over whether this all-new version has lost some of...
Big and beautiful
The good news just keeps coming: Shadow of the Colossus has a confirmed release date. We're not sure why it wasn't mentioned during Sony's Paris Games Week 2017 press conference, but we'll take it. The remake it due to launch on the 6th February for PlayStation 4, adding to an already packed first few months for the system. ...
A colossal improvement
Hey, Bluepoint Games really knows what it's doing. Sony showed off Shadow of the Colossus at its Paris Games Week press conference -- the studio's latest porting project -- and it looks fantastic on PlayStation 4. You can get a good eyeful of this remade classic in the gameplay trailer we've embedded above. We'll admit, we...
Here’s a longer look at Shadow of the Colossus on the PlayStation 4. In case you somehow missed the news at E3 2017, then remaster specialist Bluepoint is remaking Team ICO’s classic for Sony’s current console – and here’s a longer look at all of the morally testing titan slaughtering in all of its glory. A masterpiece.
But he doesn't know if they'll be used
Industry legend and Shadow of the Colossus creator Fumito Ueda has proposed improvements for the game’s PlayStation 4 remake. While the auteur wouldn’t reveal what those suggestions include – he doesn’t want to let people down if they don’t make it into the final product – he apparently does feel...
God of War and Shadow of the Colossus, too
We’ve told you time and time again that Sony’s moving away from the holidays for tentpole exclusive releases, but even after the dizzying first-party PlayStation 4 lineup in the first half of this year, still people doubt the tactic. Well, it looks like it’s going to be repeating it in 2018, because...
A classic reborn
After some confusion, Sony has now confirmed that Shadow of the Colossus is being remade for the PlayStation 4 – and not remastered. Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the tidbit in an interview with Famitsu magazine, as translated by Siliconera: “It is a remake,” he said. “The game content is the same as...
Is it a remaster or a remake? We’re still not entirely sure, but having watched the trailer about a dozen times now, we reckon Shadow of the Colossus probably falls into the latter camp. There’s been some confusion over these two terms of late, hasn’t there? Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is billed as a remaster, but in essence...
Kind of a colossal deal
We reported earlier today that several trademarks were filed by Sony, including a curious renewal for Shadow of the Colossus. Well, it seems as though this giant rumour has turned into a giant reality, since the masters of remastering, Bluepoint Games, are authoring a remake of the beloved 3D platforming adventure by...
Look: we get it
You've spent the past few years learning about how pivotal the Team ICO titles are, but you've never actually experienced them for yourself. You've looked on eBay, but the original PS2 titles fetch a packet. You've all but given up. Thankfully HD remasters do serve a purpose after all. With Sony readying a bundle of both ICO and...
Blimey, hot on the heels of VG247's Team Ico Collection rumour this morning, our buddies at TheSixthAxis have followed up with an even more specific tease: they reckon the touted HD re-release of PS2 classics Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus will hit PS3 next year
In Q1 if you want specifics. Again, there's not much else that we can say at this point. No names or sources were cited in TSA's story, so..
We tried to buy a copy of both Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus from eBay not too long ago
At £70 we were outbid. Damn those games for being so rare and so sought after. Which is why, ahead of Team Ico's upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian, it would be lovely to get an HD re-release of the classic PS2 titles. That's exactly what's being rumoured in this unconventional post over at VG247..
Honestly, what could you want more than a Shadow Of The Colossus film? Oh, you don't want a Shadow Of The Colossus film - well tough luck
According to a report in the LATimes, it's absolutely still happening. The story emerged out of an interview with the movie's screenwriter Justin Marks, the same dude that did the terrible Kristin Kreuk Street Fighter movie. Sigh. I think many of the games..
We didn't know what a Munny was until we asked Wikipedia
If you're still none the wiser, check this beast out. It is of course an ornamental recreation of Shadow Of The Colossus, a legendary Playstation 2 game from the amazing Team Ico. You can get some more details on how the model was made here. You like? You want? Of course you do.
