The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Release Information

What Sony has been doing since the release of the God of War Collection for the PlayStation 3 has been nothing short of glorious.  It’s giving newer PlayStation owners a taste of what games made this system so great without having to worry about finding that perfect PS3 model to play them on (ahem, 60 gig).  It’s also giving us gamers that have been around since the beginning a wonderful sense of nostalgia and an interest in replaying some of the classics.

Keeping in mind that these games are more than just simple ports from an older system the developers are taking the time and care necessary to breath new life into these timeless classics.  Since this welcoming trend has begun we’ve seen the addition of the Sly Cooper Collection and press announcements for the likes of Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid.

And now, the highly anticipated remastering has finally been confirmed.  The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection is set to release on September 27th, 2011 for a mere $39.99.  As these are 2 of the most beloved video games this should be a no-brainer for practically every PlayStation 3 owner.

The PlayStation Blog has confirmed that both games have been re-mastered to support full 1080p HD resolution as well as stereoscopic 3D support.  But it doesn’t end there.  For those that really take gaming seriously and have invested in both the look and sound of videogames you’ll be excited to note that you’ll be able to enjoy this gaming experience in up to 7.1 surround sound.  Last, but certainly not least, Trophies have also been thrown into the mix.  Are you smiling yet?

Although we’re still eagerly awaiting further details on The Last Guardian I’m confident this collection will tide us over for quite some time.  September can’t come fast enough.

    HD and 3D?? I think I might I’ll have to buy that 3D monitor they showed off just for this game.

  • Can’t wait for this. Ico I remember playing. Never did Shadow, well, besides a demo.

  • I’m really looking forward to this set. I never played Ico, but I always heard such good things about it that it was on my wish list.

    I rented Shadow of the Colossus, but unfortunately never finished it. It was so gorgeous on the ps2 that I can’t wait to see what the remastered version looks like.
