3D HD Team Ico collection official

TGS 2010: Following leaks, Fumito Ueda himself confirms high-def remakes of revered titles Shadow of the Colossus and Ico coming in 2011 with full 3D support.

TOKYO--While retailers' preemptive listings of games aren't always reliable, they do often provide useful indicators of what publishers have up their sleeves that they aren't quite ready to tell the public about. The latter was certainly the case with the long-rumored Team Ico collection, which was officially confirmed at the Tokyo Game Show today by Team Ico's director Fumito Ueda after retailer leaks and sightings in Famitsu

Some secrets are just a little too big to keep.

Though its title is not finalized, the collection will, as suspected, contain both of the studio's highly regarded PlayStation 2 titles--Ico and Shadow of the Colossus--redone in high definition for Sony's PlayStation 3. Two surprises for many are that the titles will both feature full 3D support and that Ico will feature the European ending rather than the US ending, making it the "complete game," according to Ueda.

The single-disc collection will hit retail in spring 2011, according to Ueda. Previous retailer listings had suggested April 2011 for the US and June 2011 for Europe. A price has not yet been confirmed for the bundle, though the Wal-Mart listing suggests it may cost as little as $40 in the US.

The collection has not yet been rated by the ESRB or PEGI. Originally, Ico was rated as suitable for anyone over the age of three in Europe and T (for Teen) by the ESRB, while Shadow of the Colossus was rated 12+ by PEGI and T (for Teen) by the ESRB.

@chedarcheese190 - yeah, I've done that twice... for both games. And bought a PS2 to play them. Twice.

That video just gave me goosebumps all over. I really don't hope I have to wait until June 2011. It's bad enough they've put back The Last Guardian until end of next year.

finally, after years of wading through a sea of 100$ used copies of Ico on amazon, i can now own it, in HD, completely new, unused, with manuel. no scratches. with shadow of the colossus included as a bonus. an awesome bonus. the wait was worth it.

@Nosoor They HAVE remade the first two God of War games in HD. They released it as a double pack for the PS3 a while back.

Can't think of two better titles to receive the upgrade treatment, classic games in the truest sense of the word.

I hope they don't just bump up the resolution, but also the textures and model detail, and perhaps make other visual enhancements as well. Either way, the games are beautiful and I'll be getting them regardless.

Wow, can't wait, day one buy for me, and that's rare. I usually buy my games used a couple months after release on amazon.

Bes news ever. Like drummer131 I too missed em last gen. Can't WAIT to get my hands on these titles. I always wanted Ico, but it just never became reality. Until 2011!

Missed BOTH of these last gen, definitely not going to miss them again. Hopefully, the frame rate issues I keep reading about when it comes to SotC will be fixed.

Wow. That's not bad at all. I had been wanting to go play ICO and Colossus. Now it's coming to me in HD! Is this going to be bundled with The Last Guardian??!!

I'm looking forward to explore the world of Ico for the very first time, and be reacquainted with the colossi :)

Always wanted to play these. But had a hard time dealing with frame rate issues in SOTC, but this is a amazing idea. Loved the God of war blu-ray. I hope they continue to do this. I hope to see a Kingdom Hearts blu-ray with trophies, that would be so sick.

@AngelCage-2 I'm with you their! I actually never played SotC, or Ico so this is totally awesome. and a MGS (HD) Collection would be INSANE.

Current 3D is for dopes, but man, I've wanted to play these games for a long time and I never had a PS2.

I am so going to get this when it comes out! Ico was really cool, and I never got to play Shadow of the Colossus.

I'll be getting this because I don't own either games. I did play them awhile back at the E3 and at a friends house. Both games are great.

My two favorite games ever released. I will definitely be in line on launch day.

How can you tell when game ratings are biased? Ico rated as suitable for anyone over the age of 3 in Europe, but rated T by the ESRB? They need to rate video games under the same standards as movies.

@lobotomies4free Dont know but in the collection the original ending and the europian will be in the game.

40$ for SotC and ICO that's gotta be the best deal I've seen since O-Box

Day One/Pre-Order/First in line. $40 is a steal for 2 GOAT games.

SONY should give some money to small studios like CAVE or 5gb to make games for them. I want bullet hell and visual novel genres to come to PS3 than 360. Remake is good but we need a new fresh IPs. :(
