Kotaku: The Team Ico Collection - a high-definition remastering of two of the PS2 generation's finest titles - will be out next year, the developers said earlier today at the Tokyo Game Show.
sony never stops delivering the quality games.
The surprise is 3D.
Or with extra Contents
its got to be the Last Gaurdian Demo and the advanced version of ICO with online co-op between the boy and Yorda.
Re-texturing!!! That sounds awesome. GoW collection didn't have re-texturing. 3D would also be amazing in Ico.(never played SotC)
@NecrumSlavery Maybe, who knows about those. But the suprises they mentioned in the article were 3D support and the Euro ending for Ico which was slightly different from the American and Japanese version, will be the universal ending.
This is The Chance for people who never had the opportunity to play Both games and for those who love the 2 Masterpieces... Team ICO = Masterpiece Creators
will the graphics improve that much?
I'll be looking forward to this since I never tried Ico and I really enjoyed the colossus conquering in SOTC but got burned out half-way through it because of the bull like colossus that wasn't so colossal nor nearly as entertaining to engage as the others : /
I'm sure some people will be surprised about the "Quality" of these two Titles.
"sony never stops delivering the quality games." Oh stfu I loved these games on the PS2 and cant wait to play these again. I still remember playing SoTC and thinking, "man I wish they waited on put this on PS3". Guess this is the next best thing. @Nabiki - Because there is no need to say that extra bit in there. Nobody cares they cater to your taste. You didnt even say anything about the game itself, just praising the almighty Sony
what did i offend you by saying sony always keeps delivering the games that cater to my taste? what's so bad about that.
He's excited. I'm excited. Don't come in here and rain on anyone's parade by being a douche bag. ICO and Shadow of the Colossus were commercial flops, which any other company supporting a studio who wasn't bringing in good profits would have canned them. However, Sony still supports Ueda's team's vision with The Last Guardian and rereleasing improved ports with extra content. Sony really does cater to its fanbase at times better than anyone else and some of us appreciate that they do. Now don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
vinniepaz never stops bitching in PS3 articles you stfu, people can say what they want so as long as it isn't trolling another console you sour little man pathetic.
demo of the last guardian, would be epic yomiro beat me to it damn.
"demo of the last guardian, would be epic" Yea, or ICO. Hell I'd be happy with some 720p videos even. It would be killer if they get it running 60FPS with uncompressed surround sound.
lol thats what i had in mind when i read surprises
I hope they toss up how to fell some of the Colossi. Even though I love the game to death, I know where to stab each Colossus without a second thought to beat them after playing the game so many times.
Day One! This is an awesome collection, would buy SotC alone!
Demo of the last Guardian
That would be genius...
I almost wouldn`t want that. It would be great for those who want it, but I refuse to play TLG before I get the full game.
You can just not play it and then read the comments on N4G about how awesome it is and then hear it calling to you in the night: "Plaaay meeee, plaaay meee, plaaaaaaay meeeeeeee!"
It's just going to make the wait even more painful. Plus I want the experience to be totally fresh just like ICO and SoTC. Masterpieces should not be viewed like gimmicks. There's not here to showcase how cinematic or how graphically high it is. It's all about the gameplay. PERIOD. -End statement
The only thing that was keeping SOTC from perfection was the limitations of the PS2 hardware. Now, oh mama...
It will be the same game with the same restrictions...
I should have been clearer. I meant the framerate will be smooth and the graphics will be sharp. They couldn't have been done like that with the PS2 hardware.
I also hope for a new DMC collection the same as Team ICO doing with their ICO games in HD ! :D === Ok people,I know this has nothing to do with the article.. and am sorry about that But my friend just found out an interesting thing considering DMC : reboot Isn't that Dante's face in the sky when the "new" Dante smokes ? EDIT : is it real or faked ? I can't tell +_+...
I dunno, I can't see Dante in that smoke. You should have said "After Team Ico Collection, I hope there is a DMC collection". That way you could kinda meander into the smoking Dante subject. :)
I can't wait for the ico collection. Man i'm going to be broke through out 2011. Dude I would love a Devil may cry collection especially the the first one, the battle with mundus when Dante changes into demon form in hd would be freakin sweet
thanks for the advice mate,bubbles to ya! EDIT : also,if you watch closely into the sky,it seems like Dante's hair style,and his face can seen in the middle,it's kinda hard to notice at first though +_+ ! EDIT (2) : @ CobraKai here is a version to make it clearer xD
Oh yeah! Now I see it! And it totally does look like the the one on the box art for DMC2
his face looks like the one from dmc 2.
Yeah I see Dante in the smoke. Good eye
Those worrying about Ico's awful North American box art, series head Fumito Ueda says he "has some concerns about that", and will "hopefully be addressing that problem". Seriously, what is with crappy American boxarts? Hopefully we can get the European boxart on the collection cover, I`d like that.
If they're using the Pal version of Ico then it will have Noise Filter 2 player co-op Variations of two areas in the game The ending is the same There is a bonus ending where they eat watermelon I have the pal version, which apparently I don't need anymore
Is it possible in the PAL edition?
special light saber weapon on next playthrough
Is there really a special light saber weapon?
The only thing I want added is...the legendary 17th colossus. There was a rumor that, when you got to the top of the main tower (via climbing when you gained enough strength), you got to face a final colossus. That's not true. You do, however, see the Garden of Good and Evil...Adam and Eve style. If you eat fruit from the tree in the middle, your strength and health go all the way back down. Lol. Team Ico...you are incredible.
still have the originals and a launch PS3... played ZOE a couple of weeks back,,,gotta try SOC
Haven't played neither of these games, looking forward to this and Sly.
Did everyone skip the "double negative" week in English class?
its the melen ending and i want this and an acecombat collection and the roumored prince of persia and a rac one and a kingdom hearts one
'optimised to run at a solid 30 frames-per-second' 60 fps would be better surely? Power of the cell and all that?
games gonna be 30fps. it is official
Day 1. Can not wait. Shadow of the Colossus is arguably the best game of last gen of consoles...only rivaled by GOW II
2 of the most dull games ive played in the last decade, but hey, they are in HD now, lets all buy it day 1!!!!
I need a 3DTV now. What's the name of the game? Team Ico Collection or Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection? The North American box art isn't aweful but I like the UK box art better. I wonder if they're talking about the European ending of Ico or SotC?
