PS4's Shadow Of The Colossus Remaster Release Date Confirmed

Shadow of the Colossus is coming to PS4 early next year.

28 Comments

Shadow of the Colossus' PS4 remaster is one of the console's most anticipated games, and now we know when we'll get to play it. The port is coming to PS4 on February 6, 2018. The news was revealed after Sony's Paris Games Week press conference, during which it showed off a new trailer of the upcoming remaster. You can check out that trailer below.

Sony first announced that Shadow of the Colossus would be coming to PS4 at E3 this year. The game's gotten quite a bit prettier in the 12 years since it first launched, with developer Bluepoint providing an extra lick of paint to help spruce up the classic PS2 title. Interestingly, the original game's creator says he sent Sony a list of changes he wanted made for the remaster. It remains to be seen precisely which changes will have been made when the game launches next year.

Not interested at all. Played and beat the original on PS2, and loved it, and didn't end up buying the PS3 version (cheap) till early this year. Also, I'm not gonna drop $40 (list price on Gamestop) on a 12 yr. old game.

I picked up the PS3 version a while back but never got around to playing it. I guess I'll wait and play this version. Hopefully they will do Ico as well.

Its not a remaster. its Remake.

The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection was a remaster. This is being made again and is a Remake.

I’d love to know the changes made to the game. I wonder if it’s 60fps?

I would get it but i hope that this is not just some coat of paint job and that they add some extra goodies with it like extra modes of some sort to add more value to a 12 years old game.

I thought this was supposed to be more of a remix-master? I was looking forward to that, not just some port.

@7tizz: I agree. Where's Oscar's evidence of that. GS is doing that more and more lately -- throwing out opinions in their articles that are worded like they're the mass consensus. Really grates.

@7tizz: possibly, but there's no proof of that either. Besides, I've seen GS do it (very recently) where they spoke negatively of a game and it was opinion (no references), but again, worded to sound like everyone's viewpoint.

See beginning of 2nd paragraph of the article and my comment (it's the most recent one).

@siarhei: Very different games, but I absolutely love Dragon's Dogma. Fantastic combat mechanics.

@siarhei: Why choose when Dragon's Dogma is butt cheap? Get both.

@siarhei: I think it's a little too different to compare. DD is more full-fledged open world action RPG. Shadow of the Colossus is more action adventure if I remember correctly. Would be like comparing Uncharted to the Witcher 3.

I enjoyed it on PS2, bought the PS3 collection, but I wonder if they'll remake this every generation.

This was a nice looking showing of exclusive titles in the pipeline. As an xbox owner, Im finally interested in a few sony exclusives. I can see my psn gt getting repassworded and a Slim in the future(‘18) Tho a lot of it was cgi, the story lines were delivered well. Heres hoping the gameplay is there.

Ghost of Tsushima, shadow of the colossus, lou 2,erika and hong kong massacre(This ones already sold)

Such an old game, yet so worth re-purchasing again. I never re-purchased the PS3 release, but considering I haven't played this since 2007 on the PS2, a PS4 version will probably be a huge breath of fresh air compared to what I've played previously. Not hiding anything, I typically play on Steam or Xbox, but because of this one's exclusivity, it gives me a reason to fire up the PS4 a bit until The Last of Us 2 comes out.

Goes without saying that all those who are fans of the previous entries (orignal, HD remake, etc...) will be buying this day 1 but to those who perhaps missed out on it during those releases something like this is just what the doctor ordered.

-DIAGNOSIS: DAY 1 BUY NINJA APPROVED-
