These Monsters Never Made The Final Cut Of "Shadow Of The Colossus"

Complex - Shadow of the Colossus designer and unafraid-to-take-his-time auteur Fumito Ueda originally planned for the game to included 48 colossi. In the final game, there are only 16 of these huge, gentle monsters—which essentially mind their own business, roaming the game's lonely landscape until you take it upon yourself to kill them under seemingly divine mandate. (You can check it out in HD on the PS3 in the excellent Ico and Shadow Collection, which you should do if you haven't already.) (PS2, Shadow of the Colossus)

Wow this is a great find.
Some of those colossi look amazing.
Very interesting.

Most of these are downright creepy as fuck. starring into that worms abyss gives me the chills. Makes me wonder what Fumita could do for a horror game

Sadly he wants to take his talents to make social games. Between ICO and SOTC i think a horror game from him would be awesome.

I think the one weakness of this game was that some of the Colossi were too similar. I would love if they created an extended edition and complete some of the ones in the article, they look great.

I think I would have quit the game at that Spider Colossus fight. Brrrrrrr

Just got a ps3, can't wait to play this game. I've always wanted to play since the ps2 era but parents were to cheap to buy me even 1 game.

Very old news.

One of them looks like a Strider from HL2, and another looks like you crawl inside of it and tear it apart from within. One even looks like Kalameet.
Cool stuff.
