Sony shocked plenty of gamers when they announced Shadow of the Colossus was coming to the PlayStation 4. While they didn’t give away many details at the time, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has since explained that this new version will be a complete remake of the original game with updated graphics and even improved controls.

“It is a remake. The game content is the same as the original version, but all the assets are being remade. I figured we could use such tech to make if we’re going to make Shadow of the Colossus in the PS4 era. Bluepoint is the development company behind the PS3 remaster versions of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. So we know them rather well.

“It’s the same, but player preferences for controls and such change over time, so we’re working on implementing a more modernized way to play,” Yoshida stated. “And of course you can play with a feel of the original version, but what we’re doing is showing how great the original work is, using today’s technology.” — Shuhei Yoshida

What do you guys think? Will Shadow of the Colossus be more enjoyable with better controls and graphics, or do you prefer the charm of the original PS2 version? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
