It is finally announced that the Shadow of the Colossus remake for PS4 will launch on February 6 and 7, 2018. Sony gave us an explanation that the Europe launch will happen a day after, February 7, 2018. We now officially know that the announced February 6 release date is for North America.
To tease us all, Sony launched a new trailer. In the video below, we can see the remake in its own spotlight, and how it actually works.
This though is the classic opening sequence for the remake. The hero is arriving at the gates of the forgotten land in search of something which we will not tell, just in case you haven’t played the game before. The short video gives us a comparison of the original game’s visuals with the ones the remake has.
The Shadow of the Colossus remake was announced at E3 2017. Shuhei Yoshida from Sony, stated that apart from the visual improvements and some control modernization, it will be completely the same as the ’06 PS2 original. Also, Fumito Ueda, the director behind the original version, hasn’t been involved that much in the remake.
