The release of the PS4 remake and new images revealed by game creator Fumito Ueda are sure to drum up discussion about a 'Shadow of the Colossus' sequel.
The Last Guardian already exists
The Last Guardian is a spiritual successor but not a sequel. Just like SOTC is a Spiritual successor of ICO. If only PlayStation can hired Ueda, his Studio to collaborate with Japan Studio to make a sequel to SOTC or another spiritual successor to SOTC.
I agree with Phoenix. There is are definitely connections between ICO, Colossus, and Guardian. I don't believe we are meant to treat them are meant to treat them as sequels because there is no desire to continue the story. If you want more Colossus replay it or play the other two games. There's good evidence for a single canon spanning all three.
You really think there’d be be a traditional sequel? The ending of SotC not only leads into TLG, but it’s also what sets off ICO. They’re all loosely connected, but they still take place in a shared world with recurring aesthetics and symbols like horned characters. The closest you’ll get to having another title that plays a lot like Shadow of the Colossus is Praey for the Gods. Gameplay wise it’s the spiritual successor to SotC while TLG is tonally the spiritual successor.
If you want another game that plays like Shadow of the Colossus, then look forward to Praey for the Gods. If you want another game that’s thematically like Shadow of the Colossus, go pick up The Last Guardian.
Speaking of which, the whole name change they had to do, "Prey to Praey", because of Bethesda's Prey is ridiculous.
Yeah Prey for the Gods was such an awesome title. Now Zenimax had to get involved and make the title look stupid
Going by the ending it's technically ICO but there doesn't need to be a 'Shadow of the Colossus 2".
nah, they remaster the remake of a remaster first
Seems like you're remastering the remakes of your remade comments.. 🤔
If they turn out to be one of the best remakes ever if not the best like a lot of critics and gamers are saying of shadow of the colossus I don't see the problem. Oh wait that's right you were just trolling for attention because you have a sad,pathetic little life
The Last Guardian is my favorite PS4 game
I'm impressed that you gave it a chance.
Why are you impressed that I like good games?
That's not what surprised me at all, just that you gave TLG a chance, it's a niche title, that's all. I agree that it was a unique experience and one of my favorite PS4 games as well. Have you played Bloodborne? That one still holds the crown for me as far as favorite PS4 games.
I don’t like Bloodborne at all. But I love NiOH...especially beautiful on my Pro.
To each their own, nioh was really good too, I stopped playing it once I got to the spiders for some reason. I need to pick that back up and beat it. I still don't have a Pro yet, I was going to get one but my wife wants to get it for me for my birthday. I'm all about Monster Hunter right now.
Pro is a nice little upgrade especially if you have a 4K hdr tv
it doesn't need one. I think with this kind of game a sequel would diminish the magic of it. I know that sounds cheesy but the only thing a sequel would bring is the same game with different colossi to bring down. If anything they should just add more colossi to the original game then in the form of DLC.
lets hope not.the game was perfect
There is one. It's called ICO.
I was gonna post exactly the same thing. I think the connections are strong enough to at least suggest that. Though, you’d really have to dig deep into both games to notice. Kind of like connections between TLOZ games.
Right. It's very subtle but a good eye will catch it and realize the connection.
Not needed the ambiguous ending to SOTC is already good enough for me.
yes its called Ico
Spoilers? Really? How many years after initial release of a game does the spoiler tag really still need to be used? Sure it is a remake... but not like it is a different story.
... why *wouldn't* the Spoiler tag be used? Is it really that bothersome? Also, considering it's a re-release and is hitting an entirely different console generation, there are going to be players new to the game that wouldn't want the story ruined for them. If a game is re-released on a more current console, regardless of how old it is, the spoiler tag is pretty relevant to those that didn't originally play it.
