The latest issue of Japanese games mag Famitsu confirms what we've been expecting for a long, long time: Team ICO's classic PlayStation 2 adventures Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are getting an HD makeover for the PlayStation 3.
Hardly a surprise. Team ICO
have been talking about the possibility of a Team ICO collection for the better part of a year. Retailers
have already started taking orders for a PS3 compilation. But Sony's making it official via Famitsu.
Unfortunately, the mag is light on details. Release date is still "undecided" and exactly how the HD re-release will be distributed is unclear. (Famitsu has two separate listings for each game, as opposed to the bundled release hinted at by retailers.)
We expect to hear more about the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus—and Team ICO's third game, The Last Guardian—later this week at the Tokyo Game Show.
