ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection: Bonus Content, Trophies Revealed

Brian Dunn's Avatar Posted by on Aug 15, 2011 // Associate Product Marketing Manager

The release of the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection, bundling two of the most highly acclaimed video games of all time, is right around the corner. Back in July, we revealed that there will be some exciting bonus video content included on the disc, as well as a dynamic theme for ICO and one for Shadow of the Colossus. Now that the videos are finished, I’m happy to give you a preview of what you’ll be able to look forward to when the collection hits on September 27.


Right from your disc, you’ll be able to enjoy these five exclusive bonus videos and go behind-the-scenes to learn more about these two classics and the visionaries that created them:

  • Early concept and prototype video montage of ICO
  • Early concept and prototype video montage of Shadow of the Colossus
  • Initial concept video for NICO, a game that was never made but turned into Shadow of the Colossus, including an on-camera introduction from creator Fumito Ueda
  • Candid 20+ minute round-table discussion between Fumito Ueda (creator), Kenji Kaido (producer) and Junichi Hosono (designer)


  • And last but not least, a 12-minute behind-the-scenes video filmed on location at the SCEI offices in Japan. This video features interviews with key production staff members about the making of ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian, as well as concept art and prototype footage of all the games, and exclusive never-before-seen footage of The Last Guardian



In addition to full 1080p HD and stereoscopic 3D support, and 7.1 surround sound, this re-release also supports a full set of trophies for each game.

This is the standard for all HD remasters on PS3. Full 1080p, 60fps (or 30fps) consistently. There’s no excuse for any less. The bonus content as well, this stuff is golden. Will have fun watching all the videos.

+ bmg91 on August 16th, 2011 at 3:24 am said:

1080P! What i thought 720P. Sweet
7.1! OMG I’m pre-ordering soon.


+ bmg91 on August 16th, 2011 at 3:26 am said:

@NarooN When did they announce this? GoW Collection was 720P.
Oh is the 3D in 1080P?


+ ItaChu on August 16th, 2011 at 4:34 am said:

Never played these games on PS2, might pick’em up someday

LOL, Now you people are complaining about trophy notification pop ups?! Wow, all I can do sometimes is laugh at some of the petty, rediculous crap people on this blog whine about.

They give you one stupid thing you want and then you dream up something even more freakin stupid to cry about! LMAO!

I’m happy to see these games getting some attention, especially SOTC. That game is the absolute definition of EPIC. Seriously if you look up epic in the dictionary and SOTC isn’t mentioned, you got an outdated dictionary lol.

Even tho this is a re-release, this is the game I’ve been looking forwart to the most! Playing this beauties in HD will be awesome!!! Hunting the white-tailed lizards in SotC to get to the top of the shrine? Again? But this time for a trophy? I can’t wait!!!!


+ EggySong85 on August 16th, 2011 at 7:57 am said:

Would it be too much to ask for the cancelled proto-colossi to be finished up and tossed out as DLC somewhere down the road? You can have my money.


+ SephTiger on August 16th, 2011 at 8:12 am said:

Can we get an ICO/SOTC PS3 theme?


+ SergeChecko on August 16th, 2011 at 9:45 am said:

I want a PS2 Final Fantasy Collection:
with trophy support and 1080pHD graphics.


+ Biggz124 on August 16th, 2011 at 10:12 am said:

You guys should’ve added bump mapping to some of the environment textures.


+ igorrocks2 on August 16th, 2011 at 11:32 am said:

Oh my GOD! Whats PS4 are going to look like I am scared now… :)


+ NDubbaYa on August 16th, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

Any chance for a PSN store release?


+ Digital-Big-Boss on August 16th, 2011 at 1:26 pm said:

I’ve still got the demo for Colossus. I remember back in the day, climbing to the top of the tower in the demo to reach a glitch filled garden. :)


+ Digital-Big-Boss on August 16th, 2011 at 1:27 pm said:

@112, that comes with the game.


+ Digital-Big-Boss on August 16th, 2011 at 1:28 pm said:

@102, love your avatar. :)


+ lisatsunami on August 16th, 2011 at 1:46 pm said:

@108, Elway, I so agree with you. Too much time on their hands, being home from school, just searching for things to whine about.

I like the trophy notification. Makes me smile when I get that in the upper right corner. As Kevin Butler said, “…a trophy that isn’t real…but it is!”

This collection is being released earlier than I thought, so that is good news.

+ Hooligantuan on August 16th, 2011 at 5:17 pm said:

I hope there’s footage of the colossi that didn’t make the cut!


+ TuttiCicero on August 27th, 2011 at 7:21 am said:

With the ICO and SotC Dynamic themes & The Last Guardian videos.. anyone who doesn’t pre-order this won’t be getting a copy untill Christmas!

+ ThugLord32 on September 8th, 2011 at 9:25 pm said:
