ICO, SotC Remakes Receive Japanese Dates And Prices

Unfortunately, the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection has been delayed.

But at the very least, Japanese gamers will get these high-definition remakes for the PlayStation 3 later this year.

According to Andriasang, the remakes will be sold separately in Japan on September 22. Each game will be sold for ¥3,980 (about $50), or consumers can also purchase both titles in a single package for ¥6,980 ($87). The latter seems to be the superior deal, especially because it comes with a 100-page booklet and dynamic PS3 themes. Plus, if you can read Japanese, you might want to visit the freshly opened websites for these HD overhauls. We've said it before and we'll say it again: we're talking about two of the greatest games of the PS2 generation and indeed, any generation. We consider the remakes a must for any collection.

And if you haven't played either yet, you really can't pass it up. Let's just hope the Collection isn't too far off for North American gamers. Same goes for The Last Guardian, by the way.

Japan always gets screwed in pricing but they get the benefit of having far more content available to them and usually first dibs.

Now that is true LV... whilst the western players must wait for titles long after many Japanese titles are released...

ICO and crew are popular games, here is hoping it won't take long for these do be released in the west; surely Sony wouldn't want unwanted delays...

Q!

I'm absolutely going to buy this collection! I may not mind the two games being sold separately (as they're both worth every penny), but I really hope that the collector's edition would be as neat as what Japan will get.

That's wickedly expensive, I ain't spending that much on some old games.

Any more TLG at E3? Hope so.

Better be substantially cheaper, like $40 for both.

September 22nd my dreams come true.

But i don't like the fact that Ico and shadow of the colossus are releasing on the same disc.I want the full cover to be seen for Ico and Sotc.
but it's also good for other people cause it's cheap and many gamers will also play ICO which is an Epic game!

I want those Dynamic Themes.

The difference between MGS and the ICO games is that Team Ico is a subsidiary of SCEJ. Unless Sony are giving up on the PlayStation brand, it's not going to happen.

Cool. I guess that means that the rest of the world can expect an early 2012 date announcement at either E3 or Gamescom, with a follow up announcement of a TLG date at TGS. You can bet that I'll be picking up the whole set!

Man, I can't wait for this to hit North America. I sure hope we get some more Last Guardian info at E3. More than anything I wanted to see Last Guardian at last years E3... So please throw us a bone this year Team ICO, at least a new trailer.

As PS Gamers, this year and next for that matter, I think we all have a reason for becoming broke. ;)

Yes, this!

And I'd also love to see another artful masterpiece redone in an HD collection for the PS3 too...all of the "Okami's"

Lol, considering it was part joke, part sarcasm, and all humor. But yeah, that DOES seem to be the trend these days.

Delays do suck, especially since I've held off on playing my PS2 versions since I heard of the PS3 HD Collection. I'd actually move them up on my backlog list as my next games to play. And yeah, I'm hoping that they come out here at the very affordable $40 that I remember reading/hearing about awhile back.

TLG looks sick as well, so hopefully we'll hear something soon about it at E3 or something. Even through trailers, I'm touched by what I see. The relationship between the boy and his beast, the music, the atmosphere; it all takes me somewhere. Team ICO sure knows how to set the mood, lol.

While I'm excited to see how these remakes turn out (LOVED the originals), this news just makes me more pumped to get my hands on The Last Guardian.
The Last Guardian might even trump Uncharted 3 on my most anticipated list... maybe.
