With the impending release of Shadow of the Colossus on PS4, we’re working with Bluepoint Games to create some new high-res desktop and mobile wallpapers. There’s just one problem: there are lots of colossi to choose from!
So, we’re leaving it to you. Vote below for the colossus you’d most like to see a wallpaper for. We’ll tally the votes on January 29, and Bluepoint will get to work. Then, starting January 31, we’ll release the top five reader-voted wallpapers as we count down the days until the ground-up rebuild launches on PS4.

The branching storyline is one of the game’s stand-out elements, and it’s something we are proud of. We tested different outcomes to make sure it was truly effective on every branch and felt seamless regardless of what decisions a player makes.

It was important to us that even the smallest detail was considered — something as small as turning left or right down a corridor can have dramatic consequences on your experience.
Lost Sphear, the second title from Tokyo RPG Factory, will be released on January 23rd, and I am very excited to deliver this new RPG for fans to play.
Many people played our first title, I am Setsuna, and we received a lot of feedback. We thoroughly reviewed that feedback during the development process for Lost Sphear and used it to examine how to improve various elements of the game. Some of these improvements include the freedom of movement in battle, a Spiritnite customization system, the ability to converse with your party at any time, a diverse variety of locales to explore, over 40 hours of gameplay, and the fact that we now have inns (lol)!
