Shadow of the Colossus is in the running for the greatest remake ever created, and developer Bluepoint is already busy beavering away on another revival. Speaking with Eurogamer.net’s tech experts Digital Foundry, president and co-owner Marco Thrush admitted that its team is growing to accommodate the scope of its next project.
“We're doing another remake,” Thrush told the site. “Our next step is, let's improve the art pipeline, let's improve the engine, let's improve workflow for artists, let's grow on the art side some more to handle our next project because it's a bit bigger.”
Of course, speculation is already rife regarding what the title in question could actually be. Most people have their fingers crossed for Demon’s Souls, but it could of course be anything – there’s not even any guarantee it’ll be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. “We're really excited about our next project and we think you will be too when you find out what it is,” teased Thrush.
At this point, people will be disappointed if it's not Demon's Souls.
Demon's Souls pls. :3
Legend of Dragoon please please please.
Demon's Souls or Jak and Daxter
Oh yeah, i would like too
PLEASE BE DEMON'S SOULS
Metal gear solid 1 would be my bet if konami want to get back into some good books
Demon Souls is possible but it sounds like another remake and does Demon Souls really need one, a decent remaster would go down equally as well. Not doing Ico at this point would seem strange since SOTC & TLG are already on PS4.
International Track & Field
Mass effect trilogy
Alex the kidd in miracle world.
The Prince of Persia trilogy or Legacy of Kain
The witcher 1 and 2 would be good shouts tbf.
hoping a lot more Remasters will come would love Resistance Trilogy as well & Infamous 1& 2 +PSN game & Mass Effect Trilogy have a lot more as well but not going to list all now
Ape Escape remaster
The problem with a Demons Souls remaster is that it would be very difficult to please long time souls fans, and newer converts.
It's a very good game, but I went back recently and the quality of life improvements from Dark Souls onward set it quite far behind.
That said, if they did implement those improvements it would dilute the experience, and what you're left with is a weaker Dark Souls.
The flipside is that sticking too close to the original Demons Souls would in many ways feel like a step backwards, what with the Dark Souls remaster being available in May.
No matter what they do, it won't please everyone. I'd be sceptical about this until I saw some gameplay.
Demon's Souls doesn't make sense to me personally. Being a PS3 title, it seems a bit too recent to be in real need of a remake. My guess is Metal Gear Solid, but my ultimate wish is Silent Hill 1 or 2.
please do Dino Crisis or Silent hill 1 or 2.. please don't do remake for Demon Soul because i don't play that kind of games including Dark Soul series and Bloodborne
@deepspace5d or Dino Crisis need to be remake with beautiful graphic. i want kill raptors and T-Rex.. Silent Hill 1 was great game and scary game ever i played.. 2 was my favorite games of all times
Horace goes skiing
@PS4fan so because you personally don't enjoy that type of game it shouldn't be made?
Ok then, in that case then I suppose they should stop making FIFA, PES, all JRPGs, most Fighting Games, Telltale style adventures, Hero Shooters, MOBAs and puzzle games.
I mean, I don't personally play them, so why make them, right?
Apart of me is praying that they are remaking Legend of Dragoon, I want that game remade so badly.
GUN. Just... please do a remake of GUN.
It doesn't even need to be Bluepoint the one to do it, anyone will do, as long as I get a remake of GUN...
@Octane I laughed so hard
Horizon Zero Dawn!
Demon Souls remake will be so interesting, not just the gameplay but from the aesthetic point of view. FromSoftware game graphics/engine and style are all very distinguishable, one look at BB and it’s animation u will immediately recognize it’s by From. Any deviation from their art style and animation physics can easily ruin the game experience, so it will probably be one of Bluepoints most challenging tasks. It will be so interesting to compare a bluepoint Demon Souls remake with Bloodborne. Can’t wait
@Johnnycide Or maybe he wants to hear good news that it’s a game he wants to play? I don’t think he said that games he doesn’t enjoy shouldn’t be made. I think you’ve read way too much into a harmless comment. Would you rather a developer you like make a game you’d love to play or are uninterested in? From purely personal preference.
That aside, I agree that MGS1 would be great.
Maybe Bluepoint are taking the FF7 remake off Square so it can actually get made
Hahahah! If your serious, I'm sorry. But that made me laugh
@NYJetsfan123 I never joke about International Track & Field!
@Neolit Why oh why waste time on remastering that. Rockstar has enough cash let them do it themselves. If Sony would waste yes waste money on something like that....... 😱😥😓
@hubertuss03 ICO with completely new graphics a real remake /remaster. They made it look better on the PS3 if they would put in the work like the SOTC it would make a difference like night and day. Then again what about Dark Cloud or Syphon Filter. But it should be the Legend of Dragoon i loved that game so much. And I payed so much for a import and it was worth every penny. 😁
They're shutting the servers of the game on PS3.
Next year, Demon's Souls will complete ten years.
With Demon's Souls remake, all the Souls game will be available on PS4.
Maybe it's just Splatoon.
@zazzy Good shout! That with current gen graphics... I been hoping for this for years...
International track and field was actually an awesome game. My bro and I always tried to one up each other's scores growing up. Good memories.
personally, I want a Zone of the Ender Remake.
remaking a PS3 games sounds too soon? the leap won't be big enough for average gamer like myself
@Johnnycide Which quality of life improvements? I miss the world tendency feature of Demon's Souls; to me Dark Souls is a step backward without it...
@PS_Nation curious dood
Any Nintendo games you’d want on PS4/Pro genuinely?
@Derpie1 No, I believe that exclusives are good and competition is a great thing on the gaming industry. Let Sony and Nintendo compete making great exclusives.
MediEvil perhaps. Who is making that?
The Last Guardian Remake
Can they just remake Mass Effect Andromeda so it can be good this time?
GOW 3.....could they make the Poseidon Fight any more epic?
@doctommaso hitboxes are way better. Estus system, doing away with the hub area, better online, more refined weapons, magic being more balanced... That sort of thing.
@Jaz007 "please don't do remake of demons souls as I don't play that sort of game"
I don't think you could get any more literal than that.
"Please don't do another FIFA as I don't play that sort of game"
See what I mean? Exactly the same.
@Johnnycide Interesting... Probably right about the hitboxes.
I preferred a true hub rather than having to find my way all the way back to the Firelink Shrine (still a hub). I prefer healing items to estus.
Probably right about weapons. I preferred magic in DeSo, as I like an MP bar as opposed to limited uses of magic.
Jet Set Willy or Streets Of Rage 2 please!
@doctommaso exactly my point. People who love these games have different preferences, I may not agree with you but if never tell you that you were wrong. If a remaster of Demons Souls is on the cards, itll be an impossible task to please everyone. I would expect a large margin of difference on metacritic for example.
Vagrant Story - if we're doing a wish list.
KP Skips Action Biker With Clumsy Colin
I'll be disappointed if it's not Fifa: Road to World Cup '98. Still hasn't been bettered.
@Neolit thats what i was thinking. Plus they have an existing relationship with EA as they ported titanfall to the 360 and by all accounts did a great job. Haha but who knows. It could be something completely left field. I would be really interested in seeing what they can do with an original ip too
Shenmue 1&2 😀
Will most likely never happen but i would Love a elder scrolls oblivion or even morrowind remake.
bluepoint could do wonders with that.
SSX Tricky I'd kill for that to be remade or remastered I miss the days of these games then you'd move on to a need for speed arrrrr the PS2 best era in gaming
Syphon filter.or parasite eve.word up son
Never played mass effect, would love to have a go as don't have a console that can play the old ones. Nearly picked up andromeda for £15 second hand as I'm that intrigued but held off due to my backlog and as ive just bought a switch. MGS1 would be pretty good too.
Jade Empire! Won't happen.... I know.
Ico makes more sense than demon souls. Unless
surprise Siphon Filter remake
If it's not Shadow Man, I'm just not interested.
I'll take a guess at it being an open-world game, which would be a huge jump for these guys development-wise. Their job openings suggests something that requires building lots of items and high quality character models with fluid animations.
...But Smash Bros' kinda fits that bill too, so who knows.
Please remake 'shining force' please😁
But ill settle for a remake of 'alpha protocol'
@playstation1995 oooohhh Parasite Eve. I would love to see Einhander.
@VanguardKaiser amazing game.word up son
I would like to put my votes behind Demons Souls, Metal Gear Solid 1 or Silent Hill 2, however as the last two are Konami then I doubt it will be them.
Uncharted Golden Abyss. It makes perfect sense in my opinion
Bubsy 3D? No?
@Johnnycide Likewise, I respect your preferences on specifics within the games, and I think we can agree it would be great to get a DeSo remaster.
@doctommaso oh definitely. It's more souls so automatically day 1 for me. Ideally I'd like to see them implement different modes, e.g. for people who prefer balance like DS2 or DS1.
I would like in no particular order - ICO, Read Dead and Wave Race!
Please be Ico...please be Ico...please be Ico...
@MrBert that would be great if they do that for ps4 version. i can't handle to play PS Vita for any games because i don't like using touchscreen for solving puzzles or do anything
Contra Shattered Soldier
A REAL Zone of the enders remaster
Rather it wasn't Demon's Souls, the genre is probably one of the strongest in gaming currently for consistent quality output, with the Souls series, Nioh, Bloodbourne et al, we're spoiled enough as it is!
Is there even a small chance bluepoint can do former PC/Xbox exclusives, not sure how licensing for things like Knights of the Old Republic would work?
Let it be... Panzer Dragoon series.
Demons souls doesnt ecen need to be remastered?!? Are you people crazy ? Lol.
You crazy (but lovely) people: they should remake neir automata! They should remake blood borne! Etc.
At least go back to ps2 era, if not ps1 or better yet 90s arcade games
@PS4fan I think it's at least plausible. It's the only Uncharted game not available on the PS4, Bluepoint has worked on the original trilogy's remaster and the fans have been asking for a console remaster/remake of Golden Abyss since the launch of the Vita version
