Bluepoint Games’ talents are on full display with the remake.
Sony was out in full force during its presser prior to the main Tokyo Game Show. It showcased new footage for Shadow of the Colossus, the PS4 remake being handled by Bluepoint Games (which also worked on the PS3 remaster). As you’d expect, it saw Wander going about the land, battling the giant Colossi and felling some in the process. Check it out below.
Unfortunately, a release date for the remake wasn’t provided – it’s still set to release in 2018 for the PlayStation 4. That being said, significant work is going into it. Assets have been remade from the ground-up and there will also be a new control scheme.
Furthermore, the original director Fumito Ueda recommended some changes that could be done for the game. Whether those changes make it or not and whether any new content is added remains to be seen. Regardless, as one of the best PS2 games ever made, it’s cool enough having Shadow of the Colossus remade in all its glory for the PS4.
