Who is Wander and why is he hunting the Colossi? This trailer provides a few answers.
If you never played Shadow of the Colossus back in 2005, then you may be confused about the remake and all the critical acclaim it’s receiving. The recent PS4 title, remade by Bluepoint Games from the ground up, focuses on Wander as he journeys across the land slaying the massive Colossi. To learn more about this, a new trailer has been released, detailing the story within and the tone that can be expected.
The PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus is more or less the same as its 2005 iteration, save for the vastly improved visuals. You still have to travel the lands, locating different Colossi, find a way to scale their massive bodies and destroy their vital points to ultimately bring them down. There are 16 Colossi in total with no other enemies.
Releasing on February 6th, you can see what we thought of the game in our review here. Suffice to say, even if you know nothing about the original, Shadow of the Colossus is worth experiencing on the PS4.
