TGS 2010: Ueda Confirms High-Def Team ICO Collection
The rumors were accurate and the project has been confirmed.
After weeks of evidence leaks, Fumito Ueda himself has announced high-definition remakes for critically acclaimed - and widely beloved - PS2 titles, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. This Team ICO Collection will even boast 3D support (Colossi in 3D!!!) and it'll feature both games in question. Interestingly for North American gamers, ICO will include the European ending rather than the US ending, which, according to Ueda, makes it a "complete game." This single-disc collection - akin to God of War Collection - is slated to arrive in Spring 2011, which falls in line with the rumor that it would hit store shelves in "March or April." You can probably expect a $40 price tag; this was the price for the GoW Collection and Wal-Mart mistakenly listed Ueda's upcoming Collection with a $39.82 price. This all comes as great news to fans of the two adventure games, which were both pleasant and challenging breaths of fresh air.
Although those who aren't familiar will find the statement too bold, we'll say it, anyway- if you're a PS3 owner and you haven't played Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, you need to return your system. If you're a PS3 owner and you don't intend to have the Team ICO Collection in your...um...collection...same deal. No, seriously.
