The remake of the classic PlayStation game Shadow of the Colossus hit store shelves this week, and a launch trailer for the game has been released.
The trailer is brief, but previews some of the many colossi you’ll encounter on your adventure. It’s another dose of nostalgia for those who have played the game before and are anxious to get lost in that world once again, and a shot of excitement for those who have never played before and are eager to discover it for the first time.
Continue below for more on the remake and to watch the launch trailer.
Also released recently was a peek at actual gameplay from the remake, as well as some information about the game. For existing fans the gameplay trailer will simply show you the shiny new version in action. For those who have never played Shadow of the Colossus before but are exited to discover it for the first time, the preview offers a quick lesson in what the game is all about: navigating a large and lonely open world, figuring out where the next Colossus is, and then figuring out how to bring it down. The video makes doing all of this look pretty easy, but it can be quite a challenge, especially for newcomers.
If you don’t want to know how to defeat any of the Colossi you might want to skip this one…or at least stop watching once the video gets to that point (the image above is also a handy indicator of when to bail). For everyone else, continue below to dive in.
Another new trailer released by PlayStation for Paris Games Week 2017 is for the much-anticipated remake of Shadow of the Colossus.
The game was once thought to be another remaster, as was done on PS3. But instead it’s a remake of the classic original, which follows a boy searching a beautiful and massive open world for various Colossi, who he then must figure out how to fell in hopes of resurrecting the girl he brought to this mysterious ancient world to save.
A brand new trailer for the Shadow of the Colossus remake has been released for Tokyo Game Show 2017. The game was officially announced with a trailer during E3 2017 earlier this summer.
Unlike the PlayStation 3 remastered re-release of Shadow of the Colossus, which was originally released for the PS2, this new version is being remade, or “rebuilt,” from the ground up specifically for the PS4 console.
When Sony’s PlayStation media briefing at E3 2017 kicked off tonight, the music that began playing immediately reminded me of some music from an all-time favorite game of mine, Shadow of the Colossus. After a few seconds it became clear that it definitely wasn’t—it ended up being for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy—but still, for a moment I was very excited.
Then, as if the video game gods had felt that excitement, a trailer for a Shadow of the Colossus remake was playing on my screen, and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I then found out that whispers of this began making their way around the ‘net hours ago, and I was one of the few actually shocked to see it. But nevertheless, the excitement was real.
If you weren’t already aware of the remake, continue below to watch the trailer and join me in being overwhelmed with happiness!
