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
