Sometimes taking a classic and re-releasing it in a HD remake can be considered to be a bit of a cash grab. But when you take two wonderful PS2 games and make them even more special with upgraded visuals, as was the case with ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection — or ICO HD — then it's really impossible to complain.

It looks like another way to enjoy this re-release is on the way to Vita, meanwhile, courtesy of a new patch coming to the PS3 title. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida recently tweeted that he was playing the title through Remote Play, and that it's not far away.

I was play testing ICO HD Remote Play on PS Vita. We are almost ready with a patch. Beautiful on OLED. More info soon.

We imagine the visuals look rather special on the Vita screen, so this may be one patch with a download time worth enduring.
