‘Shadow of the Colossus’ was rebuilt from the ground up for PS4

by John_A

When Sony unveiled a remake Shadow of the Colossus for the PS4, it raised one big question: is it just a glorified remaster, or a true revamp? Thankfully, it’s more than just a quick-and-dirty upgrade. Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida tells Famitsu that every asset has been remade — about the only thing left is the core gameplay. There will be an option for a modernized control scheme, but that’s about as far as the functional changes go.

The asset re-do isn’t completely surprising. The developer, Bluepoint, had already produced a more straightforward remaster for the PS3. Also, there’s the simple matter of age: a 2005-era PS2 game just isn’t going to look great on your 4K TV without an overhaul. While it’s easy to feel burned out by wave after wave of game remasters, this is fresh enough that it could be worth a look even if you can still play an original copy.
