The unexpected reveal of Shadow of the Colossus during PlayStation’s E3 2017 Media Showcase was a rare moment of true surprise and delight. Developed by Bluepoint Games and JAPAN Studio, Shadow of the Colossus looks to be lovingly rebuilt for PS4, making one of the most artistic, emotional, and celebrated games ever made available for a new audience.
Though specifics are scarce at present, we did get a first look at some impressive in-game footage from the announce trailer. Watch it at the top of this post.
The fact that Shadow of the Colossus remains so entrenched in the modern gaming discourse is a lasting monument to the game’s singular vision. If this reintroduction can introduce that wonder to a new generation of gamers, it’s a win for the medium as a whole.
What did you think? I’m hoping we’ll have more details on Shadow of the Colossus in the months ahead. Stay tuned!
