Both games will be remastered in high definition with support for 3D displays as well as PlayStation Network trophies. God of War: Origins Collection will launch September 13.

As for the Team Ico collection, it will include the developer's pair of critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 efforts, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Like God of War: Origins Collection, both games will feature high-definition visuals, 3D support, and trophies. In Japan, the bundle will also include a special 100-page booklet about both titles and dynamic custom themes for use on the PlayStation 3 XMB dashboard.

[UPDATE] Sony has now confirmed that Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection will arrive on September 27. The two-game pack will retail for $39.99. Each game has been remastered to support 1080p HD resolution, and they also feature full stereoscopic 3D and 7.1 surround sound.
